Description

With this album award-winning drummer/producer Benny Greb draws a line back to the very special groove-scapes of his very first release, 2005's 'Grebfuit 1'. "At the time, this combination of a-cappella sounds and drums was an experiment which turned out to be congenial and kind of magical", Greb recalls.

Now, twelve years later, Benny Greb picks up on this daring concept and informs it with all the experience as a musician, composer and producer he has gathered since. While 'Grebfruit 1' essentially was an a-capella-quintet accompanied by drums, the music now goes far beyond what one might expect of a-cappella-arrangements in any genre and at times uses up to 70 voices, resulting in a stunning density of sound and playful complexity, which at the same time never loses out on accessible clarity.

Passion, creativity and control are the key to Benny Grebs status as one of Germany's leading drummers in recent years. Highly in demand as a sideman, well respected and successful as a teacher in clinics and drum camps, as well as with his own projects like the trio 'Moving Parts, he has been rewarded several awards like the Jazz Echo 2016 and "best clinician in the world" for three consecutive years by the American Drum Magazine. Though what experts, colleagues and listeners appreciate most about his work is his impeccable sense of Groove and his natural musicality.
