This record was just released on Outhere Music. We recorded it two years ago in the lovely Kammermusiksaal at Deutschlandfunk Cologne with Bastian Stein on trumpet, Ronny Graupe on guitar, me on doublass and the Hathor Conosort (three piece viola da gamba ensemble). Also I composed two pieces „Lumen“ and „Jacob“; really enjoy listening back.
Memorias Live at King Georg also on bandcamp now. I love it. The gig was recorded December 20th 2019. Mixed and shortened it a tiny bit.
Marek Johnson news.
We’ve had some songs on hold for a year now and this one made it to the internet first.
Hope you enjoy it!
Sharing this song from my little solo set – voice & guitar – at Stadtgarten Cologne earlier this week.
