Sehr melodioeser und zugaenglicher hoch virtuoser Jazz- gespielt von einer hochrangigen & international besetzten Band.

Auf Tour in Deutschland auf Einladung des Kultursekretariats NRW!

Die Musiker der „Christian Finger Band“ sind herausragende Solisten und spielen mit den beruemthesten Jazz Musikern der Welt; z.B. Vadim spielt mit der Vibraphon Legende Gary Burton, ist Professor am “Berklee Collge of Music Boston” und hochdekorierter Preistraeger (1. Preis beim 2010 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Composers Competition/ 2. Grand Prize beim BNP BARIPAS Concours de piano Martial Solal 2010), Tim spielt mit Paquito D’Rivera, Randy Brecker, Kenny Barron,Tom Harrell, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Peter Erskine & Roy Hargrove; Christian arbeitet mit Lee Konitz, Rich Perry, Dave Stryker & Dave Kikoski und Ingo spielt mit Benny Bailey, Dusko Goykovich & Norma Winstone.

Der Klang dieser aufregenden Formation ist von den Kompostionen des Schlagzeugers Christian Finger (geboren und aufgewachsen in Unna/NRW/Deutschland; lebt seit 2001 in New York) gepraegt, die europaeische, amerikanische, indische und andere Einfluesse eindrucksvoll verbinden.

Ausserdem ist die Musik von einem hohen Mass an Interaktion und Ideenreichtum der vier virtuosen Musiker gepraegt; die Kompositioen geben ihnen den Freiraum ihre telepathisch anmutenden Faehigkeiten auszuspielen. Diese magisch anmutende Intuition, Imagination und Spielfreude begeistert das Publikum immer wieder. Groovender Puls jeder Art, aber auch ganz ruhige, lyrische Momente der Stille kreieren eine unverwechselbare, kontrastreiche und persoenliche Atmosphaere.

Jazz Radio Sydney, Australia

“…Music is very diverse, remembering me sometimes of Pat Metheny, sometimes of Monk, sometimes of Bela Bartok. Rich Perry with his beautiful haunting sound is a pure delight, and all the other musicians are very good, too. Beautiful string quartet piece are a unique atmospheric enrichment and make this album even more very special”
