Description

Peter Protschka is one of the most versatile and interesting German jazz trumpet players on the scene. His greatest passion is hard-bop and post-bop, that classic American way of playing jazz that has been cultivated since the early 1960s. His playing exudes an energy and passion that is best discovered live on stage and is perfectly captured on 'Twilight Jamboree'. Protschka regularly goes on tours, including with this quintet, to which the superb US tenor singer Rick Margitza belongs along with Martin Sasse (piano), Martin Gjakonovski (bass) and Tobias Backhaus (drums). This album was recorded in 2014 at the Basel jazz club "Bird's Eye". It presents five musicians who delve into their own sound world, blend into an organic unit after just a few bars, in which there are no egos anymore, but only deep inner acceptance, crispy grooves, beautiful melodies and brilliant runs. In an accelerated swing pulse, bass and drums drive the harmonious action and create the basis for consistent and often perfect modal chord progressions, on the basis of which catchy themes and virtuoso solos are discharged with aplomb.
