Christian Doepke Trio

Adlibs (feat. Rick Margitza)

Jazz & Milk

Released: 1st January 2012 | 11 track jazz piano album
In the current hype involving young German jazz pianists an exclamation mark should be added to Christian Doepke´s name. Lyricism and groove should not be contradictory. The same applies to pace, depth and gracefulness, let alone swing and intelligence. In addition, the compositions of the Amsterdam-based pianist also tell wonderful stories, which really dots the i´s. Doepke, a romantic at heart like Bill Evans †who gets a beautiful tribute with Bill´s Mood †as well as a realist in the tradition of Horace Silver, has developed his own signature on the 88 keys with a clear touch and a sovereign technique, that clearly distinguishes him from the German jazz pianist masses. You´ll see someone buckled down to a concert grand, who is equally familiar with sunlit open spaces in a forest and the liveliness of a metropolis, witness „Heaven Knows“ and Looking For Trouble“. (Dr. Tobias Böcker, English translation by Emiel Wienholts)
