Newsletter september 2013

Dear all,
The summer seems to be behind us and I hope you've all enjoyed the sun, the warmth and the holidays! Last Saturday I was singing at an outdoor festival in France (in Hussigny, just across the border from Luxembourg) and weather wise it was still just okay but now it's really getting colder, at least in Luxembourg. It was the first time for me to sing in France and even before we had our performance we were asked to sign posters and the CD. That gave us a very welcoming feeling and it was great to notice that the audience was so appreciative. Very special! Here is a video of our concert at the Festival en Sol Mineur in Hussigny. The sound doesn't give credit to my band but they were swinging!
To promote the festival, me and my guitar player Dany Schwickerath also had a guest performance in France for Mirabelle TV, a local television station in Lorraine. It was an exciting but very nice experience and we survived it ;-) Here you can watch the programme. As of 4min30 Pascal Mazzalo from the festival organisation talks about the festival and me and as of 5min45 we're playing the song "Social Call". After that the host of the show Valentine asks me one question (fortunately ;-)) and that's it :-)
End of November I'll also be performing in Holland for the first time at the "Heerlen Jazzt" festival in Heerlen. I'm very much looking forward to that especially because I'll have the opportunity to play again with the wonderful piano player Frank Harrison from London. So, the date is: 
Sunday 24th November at 15:00 in the Savelbergklooster, Gasthuisstraat 2 in Heerlen!!
More info will follow soon on
For those living in Luxembourg: two days before, on Friday 22nd November we will also be in Luxembourg at the Cercle Münster in the Grund! More details will follow in my next newsletter.
Other upcoming concerts for this year are:
  • Two concerts with the Rudi Schaaf Band in Saarbrücken en Saarwellingen on 19th and 20th September. Lots of original pieces and improvisation!
  • On 17th October I've been invited by Georg Ruby as a guest in the Brunnenhof Café in Trier. It's a jazz evening with the HFM Workshop band from Saarbrücken featuring Georg Ruby and me. 
  • Friday 8th November I will have a concert with the Blue Art Orchestra in the Villa Fuchs in Merzig (D) with a choir. Will be impressive to have so many people on stage! 
Well, all the best, lots of warm greetings and hope to see you at one of my concerts!!

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you need to publish more about this issue, it may not be a taboo matter but usually people don't speak about such subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!
