On ,Live Cuts II" he once again brings together excellent musicians for a perfect fusion of jazz, rock, pop, funk, soul, electronic an d world elements and inspirational soli. Thereby guitarist TORSTEN DE WINKEL and the rhythm-duo OLI RUBOW and HELLMUT HATTLER demonstrate on tracks as ,Ballhaus Rubeau", ,The Terrace" or ,New I.D." how intoxicating this combination of elaborated compositional complexity and explosive delight in playing can be. Also mind-blowing as usual: singer FOLA DADA who adds a warm soulful magic to the titles ,To Bed", ,Mirrorman" or ,Marseille". Further support: the trumpeter JOO KRAUSS and the drummer JN SCHLACHTER.
