Patrick Deltenre, Ivan Paduart – “Hand in Hand”

Patrick Deltenre, Ivan Paduart – “Hand in Hand”

Hand in Hand – an album title that contains two meanings. Firstly, it of course reflects the artists’ collaboration as a duo; two creative individuals pursuing a musical goal together.

Denis Gäbel – “The Good Spirits”

Denis Gäbel – “The Good Spirits”

“An early candidate for any best-of 2018 list.” (Hans-Bernd Kittlaus, JazzPodium) – “I’d been thinking about heading out to record an album in New York, which for me is the most inspirational jazz source, ever since I did part of my studies there in 2006. Two years ago I heard Clarence Penn again in New York’s ‘Smalls’, and I suddenly decided – I can pull this off! I really wanted to capture that special sound and the energy of the local scene”
