Refreshing Second Album With
With a fresh breeze the Frankfurt trumpet player Axel
Schlosser presents his second album "Sounds From My World".
After his first release in autumn 2005, the succesful debute
CD "Touching The Moon" (J4E 4775), now, one year later,
Schlosser offers another splendid production, where you can
hear clearly his musical development.
Whereas the first release was orientated to American
influences, with "Sounds From My World" Axel Schlosser is
turning more and more towards the European style which
grants even more identity, without losing compositional
variety and stilistic flexibility. He reflects his spiritual
and geographic music roots, experiences and occurrences of
his life. He is supported by Tony Lakatos (ts), Rainer Böhm
(p), Arne Huber (b) and Jean Paul Höchstädter (dr). Real
music dialogues are developing between the characters.
Lakatos and Böhm contributed each one piece to the CD. The
other tracks are compositions from Axel Schlosser and
adequately arranged standards.
