I began to play instruments at 5, started to play bass at 28, had my 1st influences from E. Weber, K. Doldinger and many scandinavian Jazz Musicians but found my way to Jazz via jazz-rock played by FZ, Miles Davis, Chicago, King Crimson, Patto and others.... Then started a long time of my life without music (the biggest mistake I made in my life), but found back in 1999/2000... It didn't work good in my joblife so I found a way back to my passion (music), played bassguitar and sang in several groups and my musical activities werd quite different - from renaissance to contemporary music... At the same time I had - and still have - a lot of joy with my friends in the hard-rocking group "Blackout". A short time after my divorce I found again my old friend (my very best!) with whom I made music in the mitdth of the 80's. We decided to go on... Inspired by the bassists Eberhard Weber (since '75) and Tony Levin (in the 80's) - and free again to do my own thing - I decided to start on the electric upright. that means p r a c t i s i n g , something I hated in my youthtime (that was a big mistake too!). But it's never too late ;-) ... What I'd love to do is some world-music projects. And that's why i'm here too (remember Diz in the 50's, he was one of the pioneers once - in my eyes). Can't stand radio stuff and the way the majors sell music - like hamburgers (John Mc. Laughlin said that once, right?)

The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
Pianist and singer Barbara Carroll was host Marian McPartland's second guest during the first season of Piano Jazz. Thirty years later, Carroll makes a return appearance to reminisce with her friend about their experiences at the Hickory House and the Oak Room. Carroll gives a charming performance of "Very Early" and McPartland improvises a musical portrait of her guest.
The great composer and bandleader was distraught over the 1967 death of Billy Strayhorn, his songwriting and arranging partner of 28 years. But Ellington took Strayhorn's passing as an impetus, born of necessity, to increase his own productivity. Here are five examples.
At the Village Vanguard, one flight down from the hubbub of New York City, in a tight space packed with people, we're about to embark on a musical odyssey by sea. Our captain is saxophonist Chris Potter, who's launching his Odyssey-inspired album The Sirens.
Divine: The Jazz Albums, 1954-1958 packs four CDs with Vaughan's music, recorded live or in the studio with bands big and small. Two live albums from Chicago nightclubs are standouts, partly when a performance threatens to slide off the rails.
