MUSIC (audio commentary)

This is the second album of my trio, recorded in 2009 and released in 2010 on Pirouet Records. Going back to this album was like stepping into a time machine. I talk about how we applied our live concept into the studio situation on some of the tunes. I also talk about how my trio mates were responsible for a few of the (questionable) song titles on the album, our use of musical cues, strategies on trio interplay and other memories from the recording sessions.

My dear friends Niels Klein, Jonas Burgwinkel & Robert Landfermann join me in the studio to talk about my ninth record GLOW II. It was fun to dwell on our memories from the recording sessions and share our individual perspectives on how we dealt with the music.
