Yesterday night we had the honor and pleasure to welcome Snarky Puppy for a little rehearsal before their show tonight at Columbiahalle Berlin! Never before we had so many absolutely exceptional musicians in the studio at the same time! Mind-blowing!
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.
Together with Lionel Haas (p), Patrick Farrant (g) and Martin Lillich (b), drummer Torsten Zwingenberger has started the project BERLIN 21. In November 2013 the band recorded the songs for their debut album “CAPITAL LETTERS” on two days at Blackbird Music Studio. The record will be released by Blackbird Music on May 16th, 2014. It will include a bonus DVD that features the complete recording sessions. This is the album teaser:
“Back To My Roots” is the name of the debut album of the new Fusion project of keyboard player, composer and music producer Andreas Hommelsheim. We’re looking forward to its release on Jan 31st, 2014, because all of the 11 tracks were recorded and mixed at Blackbird Music Studio. Besides drummer Lutz Halfter, bassist Christian Krauss and, of course, Andreas Hommelsheim, a lot of guest musicians such as Ron Spielman visited us for the album production. What it was like? You will know after watching this making-of video.
