out now : Tango Ensemble faux pas
The tango sextet faux pas from Northern Germany, is popular with German tango lovers and international audiences in Europe, South America and Asia.
For their new album they arranged and recorded a fine selection from Traditional Tango Compositions to Tango Nuevos by composers like A. Piazzolla, G. Lynch and R. Galliano. Vocal songs and instrumentals are found equally on the record. Their interpretations are convincing by clarity in sound and arrangement. Individual virtuosity and sensitivity of the musicians are noticeable throughout but never interfere with the ensemble sound as a whole.

Release Feb. 26th: Debut Album by New York based Bassplayer/Composer Mark Wade
Bassist Mark Wade takes the art of the trio to brilliant new heights with his debut recording Event Horizon.
Working with trio-mates Tim Harrison, piano, and Scott Neumann, drums, Wade shines as an instrumentalist, composer, and bandleader.
“I always loved listening to great piano trios,” the Queens, New York-based bassist says. “With no horn players or other musicians, there is so much space for expression, but with that comes the responsibility to have something to say. You can’t hide behind a lot of other musicians. Everybody has to really stand out. I wanted to challenge myself and put myself in a situation where I had to be an excellent soloist.”
Release Feb. 26th: Sampler with music from the Documentary “Tango Pasión”, a movie by Kordula Hildebrandt.
