press echo:

“It is eminently austere music, relentlessly precise, full of structural

luminosity and fluid intelligence. It is music that has freed itself from all power

and does without outbursts, but, as in #99, works with intensifications and

intensification and condensation

Tim Gorbauch, Frankfurter Rundschau

“condensed formations, which are carried by an unavoidable flowing movement”

Hans-Jürgen Linke, Jazzthetik

“a lightness for which the word ‘flow’ almost seems cumbersome” Wolf Kampmann, Jazzthing


the recording was awarded with and financed by the

Initiative Musik , the German’s federal government’s funding agency that supports the music industry for rock, pop, and jazz.
