Song Recital With All Facets

Klaudia Salkovic-Lang and Sepp Fischer in concert at the Raven

 

When you put things off you still not getting rid of them. Such was also the case  with two congenial artist. It took them many years until Klaudia Salkovic-Lang an the director of the Mitterfels Burgtheater Associtation Sepp Fischer found to each other on musical terms. From there things went rather quickly. Within a week the concert programm was put together, along with the set list, the arrangements. 

 

Beneficiaries of this Song Recital Idea were great number of concert-goers, who gathered at the Raven on sunday. Small stage - big effect, that was the credo. The main protagonists still had some trumps on the package leaflet. But more abaut that later.

 

Tom Waits and his songs are what Sepp Fischer feels strongly attracted to. With a transfigured look he intonates with a smoky, broken voice the masterpieces of the grandmaster. „Heart of Saturday Night“ is the smooth intro into an evening with many surprises.

 

The first comes in the shape of a brilliantly disposed Klaudia Salkovic-Lang. Like a volcanic eruption she sings about the favorite subject of all women and Zalando- disciples: New Shoes. Groove in it‘s primal form. To remain sitting becomes difficult for the first time. The fact that Klaudia has a gigantic vocal range is becoming clear with Van Morrison‘s „Tupelo Honey“. her husband, Stefan Lang, accentuates this with an outstanding solo on the flugelhorn.

 

The fact that a drama director should have a actor‘s talent is far known. He has to show his actors where things are heading. And this he knows. With Paolo Conte‘s  „Genova per noi“ he comedicly outshines the wood choping Adriano Celentano with ease. And when he claims singing and mumbling the „piano has been drinkin‘ , not me“ the whole audiences is almost rolling on the floor, laughing.

 

But also the soft sounds characterize the concert. „The Briar and the Rose“  has a almost mythical effect and lets the audience hold their breath, when Jochen Benkert lets his double bass boom with the bow to the low whispering voice of Sepp Fischer. Stock still the listeners sit, you could hear the famous pin drop.

 

Salkovic-Lang puts on speed again with the soul classic „I heard it through the Grapewine“.  Michael Reiß on electrical oder accoustic guitar blends inconspicuosly but finely into the quintet.  Often very reduced, only caressing the strings with a  bottleneck he completes the clever arrangements.

 

An when Sepp Fischer wonderful lascively is celebrating the word „striptease show“ in „Tom Traubert‘s Blues“, while Stefan Lang set beautiful fills with his flugelhorn, you finally know, that all possible facets of a song recital are being covered.

 

The highest musical level in combination with a sense for pleasure and humour. A rewarding thing, calling to be repeated.

 

Even after the last encore the audience have not really surendered. But there is an end to everything, because „It Is a Jungle Out There“.

PETER WEH'S CLEECH

Big Band Project at the "Night of the Big Bands", Dec 9th, 1999, at Jazzclub Leerer Beutel, Regensburg, Germany

The project „Peter Weh‘s Cleech“ was launched in January 1999 at the Negerländer-Festival at the Jazzclub Regensburg, Germany, as a constructivistic counterpart to the mostly free concept of the „Roots Arkestra“ during the „Nights of the Bigbands“. Now the 12 members of this project are playing their first concert. 

 

The Bandleader, Regensburg born musician and performer, doesn‘t actually regard this band-project very much to be a "Bigband" in the common meaning of the expression, because his roots are not so much in the Jazz-Music as in in so called E-Musik ("serious music" – whatever that means outside of Germany …?) and conceptual rockmusic. 

 

So his compositions and arrangements do not actually remind one of classical Bigband music, but in it‘s flexibility and free approach in conjunction with the anachronistic paraphrasings and experimental approaches of a polystylistic musician such as Frank Zappa.

ECCENTRIC MUSIC FROM CONCEALED CHAMBERS

RostMondOrchestra presents second album »you didn‘t show up yesterday« 9, Feb 2001 in the »Leerer Beutel« in Regensburg 

REGENSBURG. »Comfortable brittleness«, a favourite musical feature of Rainer J. Hofmann, 34 year old musician and side-line pharmacists from Regensburg. The paraphrase stands for life‘s drapery, mood, sensation, or simply tales to be told. Tom Waits‘ music appears to be »comfortably brittle« and thus beautiful in its gloomy and somehow lost character. Nevertheless critics are about to discuss whether Tom Waits ist still pathetically creative or merely a well-known family father. Any way, he has gone through some development. And so has the RostMondOrchestra whose debut album »sleeping on stones again« from 1997 delighted Waits fans with relationship in sound and matter. Therefore the group‘s new album which will be presented 9, Feb 2001 in the »Leerer Beutel« in Regensburg does not completely break up with Tom Waits but it is much more distant to him. »You didn‘t show up yesterday« is the title of the quintet‘s second album containing the musical work of Hofmann (accordeon, pumporgan, piano, clarinet), Sepp Fischer (vocals), Tom Eyiip (guitar), Peter Eichhammer (bass) and Markus Hierl (guitar). In comparison to 1997 there are among others no drums. According to Hofmann »…it had after all a challenging effect on playing skills and quality…«. Each musician comes out more clearly, there is no more space for a lack of musical precision. In fact there is no loss in rhythm. And finally there still are a few percussion like beating sounds on the CD, played by Roland HH Biswurm on pieces of junk and hubcaps - whatever you may trip over out in the countryside.
Hofmann who - together with Peter Eichhammer - wrote all the songs tried to find convenient places to do the recording, e.g. in Wildenberg Castle at Roland HH Biswurm‘s place, in an empty room above the JazzClub, in »Hesperidengarten« or in the lonely farm house at Wolfred Zierl‘s place close to Lanquaid. According to Hofmann who by dealing with radio plays or the »NOSTRADIM« project developed a sensuality for rooms and sounds, the places and the music should mutually »engage«, should be »inhalable«. The unusual environments brought along some surprises - an impulsive attempt to play on an oddly silent trombone ended in finding a wasps‘ nest inside -, they brought together musicians »beyond the polite but resultless hellos in the street«. Therefore we find Norbert Vollath (bassclarinet) as well as Andy Scheffel (trumpet) and Bertl Wenzl (saxophone) on the record. The debut album of the RostMondOrchestra delighted both critics and audience, deservedly. Fortunately the second CD is different in character but as successful. Where there were pop elements clearing the way for the Waits-like singing of Sepp Fischer before, we now hear a dominating influence of jazz and folk sometimes playfully ensnaring Fischers heavy sound in the middle. »Regarding our skills at that time the first album was a good success« resumes Hofmann. Now the band has gone through some years, its music has become more obstinate and therefore more colourful, it now is beyond pop and »closer to chamber music«. But don‘t imagine the chambers to be neat and comfortable. We talk about the chambers in the very back, down, beside, gloomy, choked in smoke, cranky. It is those chambers in which the shiny surface of beauty finds its brittle truth.
