ENGLISH:

"Very exciting music, an excellent quartet" (Bert Noglik, former curator of the Berlin Jazz Festival); "Marvelous...very fine the whole thing..." (fellow clarinetist Rudi Mahall). Recorded live on one single afternoon in February 2020 shortly before the first covid lockdown at Tito Knapp's "Zentrifuge" in Berlin this is an absolutely singular album. It captures the spontaneity and creativity of a real concert event. There is no professional recording with harmonica as part of the ensemble in the field between Improvised Music and Contemporary Jazz that shows more musicality, exceptional sound conceptions & craftsmanship than "BERLIN, GERMANY" by the BROEDE SCHIRMER UNIT.

About the ensemble:

This brand new line-up from Berlin offers music between Free Improv, Composition and Contemporary (Free) Jazz.

The unusual instrumentation with harmonica, clarinets and piano together with the compositions and the strong musical characters of the players create an original and independent group-sound with a dense and compact interaction. Communication between the musicians is made audible and visible for the audience.

DEUTSCH:

Dieses neue Ensemble aus Berlin bietet Musik im Spannungsfeld von Free Improv, Komposition und zeitgenössischem (Free) Jazz. Die ungewöhnliche Instrumentierung mit Harmonika, Bassklarinette und Klavier erzeugt zusammen mit den Kompositionen und den starken musikalischen Charakteren der einzelnen Musiker einen sehr eigenen Bandsound, der sich besonders durch dichte Interaktion auszeichnet; Kommunikation zwischen den Musikern, das gegenseitige Zuhören, wird hörbar und sichtbar.
