more about the music
It don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that swing... ...but if it swings, that’s all you need to make you feel good! There’s no sense in reading or talking about SWING – you got to feel it and do it! Thilo Wagner, one of Europe’s best swing pianists finally formed his own trio after having performed with jazz greats like Jim Hall, Art Farmer, Scott Hamilton, Slide Hampton, Clark Terry. He teamed up with two young, yet already well-established players: Jean-Philippe Wadle on bass and Flo Hermann on drums. And you can share the fun they had swingin away when you listen to their BASSFACE SWING TRIO. Recorded in concert, the CD „Straight Live" (ROD 25) captures all the energy, dynamics, their charme, the ideas, their virtuosity and not least the humour of this trio. More about the musicians: Drummer Flo Herrmann performed already with - James Moody (Duke Ellington/Count Basie) - Jiggs Wigham (Rias Big Band Berlin) - Mike Smith (Frank Sinatra Big Band) - Bill Ramsey - Emil Mangelsdorff Bassist Jean-Phillipe Wadle has won several German jazz awards and performed a.o. - Peter Weniger - Emil Mangelsdorff - Allen Blairman - Peter Fessler - Tom Gäbel
