Final Stair have already become old acquaintances of the studio’s team, so we were extra happy about the fact they put the confidence in us to record their new album. Two weeks of rock’n’roll ahead with the twins Istvan (vocals & guitars) and Denes Voros (bass), new band member Andre Seidel on the drums plus in-house recording engineer Michael Ungerer.

Jazz clarinet player Rolf Kühn recorded his upcoming album for MPS/Edel at Blackbird Music Studio last week. On guitar Ronny Graupe, on bass Johannes Funk, on drums Christian Lillinger. We filmed the recordings and we are looking forward to present the finished EPK very soon.
In the last three days we worked with the Berlin composer and piano player Max Doehlemann and the great musicians of his “Azur” project with Christian Schantz on bass, Martin Fonfara on drums plus the two Israeli artists Hadass Pal Yarden (vocals) and Yaniv Ovadia (vocals, saz). The project is about the musical connection between Berlin, Istanbul and Jerusalem. Blue Note meets oriental tonality and shows the variety of the Turkish-Jewish and Kurdish-Jewish music tradition. At the studio eight songs were recorded, three of them were captured on camera.
