The session started off with a performance of their compositions with Samuel Wootton on percussions, Silvan Straub on drums, Sebastian Wehie on Saxaphone, Daniel Stritzke on bass and Alex Eckert on guitar wowing the music enthusiasts present with improv and soothing melodies transporting us to a different universe.
They talked about what jazz meant to them and that it is not only sheet music but cooperation and understanding your band members. Communication is a huge part of playing jazz and enjoying it; communication between band members, communication amongst the audience as well. Jazz is all about performing your feelings and the vibe of the place, time and people also make a huge difference in the sound and feel of the music.
