recorded live at "Greve Studios", Berlin, October 2012
Finally edited and released: 15 minute energizing jazz shot to celebrate summer
Pianist and composer Rolf Zielke’s music is a reflection on contemporary jazz, Latin and Brazilian jazz, and music of the ‘Middle East’.
‘Technically he knows all the tricks… The man from Berlin presents himself as a pianist who is able to surprise the overcrowded trio-genre with a fresh, new sound.’ (Jazz thing)
‘The listener experiences piano-trio-jazz of the highest order: Zielke, winner of many awards and a man who has worked with musicians from many cultures, presents four top-class compositions (…) Because of these compositions and the musicians’ intuitive understanding this brilliant performance is an exciting masterpiece from beginning to end.’ (Jazzpodium)
Since the mid-eighties, Rolf Zielke has been an active member of the international jazz scene, presenting his own projects and accompanying renowned artists such as Charlie Mariano. Through years of intensive concert touring in Germany, Europe, Asia, Africa and the USA he has developed an individual but international sound.
‘As long as there are musicians like Rolf Zielke and Herbie Hancock, who display such far-sightedness during their concerts, one needn’t fear the lack of innovation in the jazz scene.’ (Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung)
