OCTOBER NEWS!!!!!

Dear friends,


With Stefano Battaglia, my wonderful duo partner, I've spent some great days in South Korea to perform at the European Jazz Festival. Also a live set at EBS television took place which will be available on YouTube within the next few weeks.

In two weeks we'll go again into the studio keep on working on "Little Peace Lullaby", our upcoming duo album.

And for 2015 we've already have immense tour plans including Poland, Australia, Japan. Further we're in negotiation with promoters in USA, Canada, Iran, Hong Kong, Argentina and of course Austria, Germany and some more european countries.

--
For a long time I had the dream to integrate the wonderful sound of the oud (persian lute) into my music. I'm thought about a trio with bass clarinet, oud and piano. With austrian Christoph Cech and syrian Orwa Saleh, I've found now a perfect lineup and just started composing the first couple of tunes. We're also in progress to organize some first concerts for next year.

--
During our stay in Seoul in South Korea I had the pleasure and honor to spend some time with a real european jazz legend, british piano player John Taylor who's already for more than 40 years now on the scene and played on some really important recordings.
AND.... we've decided also to collaborate. For next year's autumn there're plans to play a few concerts in Austria & Germany.

--
And finally I've found a new very interesting new instrument. A so called "duclar" a Duduk with a clarinet mouthpiece, wonderful warm and soulful sound. I'll try to integrate the duclar still this year in my music.

--
Also we'll perform some more concerts this year.
In october it'll be only one Café Drechsler performance, but a great one at the Schutzhaus in Vienna on the 30th of october.
Later this year there'll be another tour in South Korea with Stefano Battaglia and a concert at Vienna's Porgy & Bess as well.

Enjoy the beautiful autumn.
