Roland Satterwhite Solo

Roland Satterwhite is an American Violinist/Violist and Singer.
He performs his original songs solo with the help of pedals and the occasional sparing use of a loop machine. His songs are largely inspired by Delta Blues and west African Kora and Griot music traditions but have the authenticity of an artist who has found his own voice. Roland has developed his own way of plucking the viola that is unique, and has lyrics covering subjects from political upheaval to love to animals. He also performs his original material with his trio, Tolyqyn.

As a violinist, Roland has toured internationally and collaborated with musicians as diverse as Albita, Pedrito Martinez, Ariacne Trujillo (USA), Pupy y los que Son Son (Cuba), Marta Gomez, Agujetas Chico, Jorge Pardo (Spain), Marta Topferova (Czechia) Django Lassi (Germany) Fanfara Kalashnikov (Germany/Romania).

Aside from composing and performing, Roland is an arranger, producer, teacher, recording engineer, and makes music videos.

Tal Arditi will join roland on guitar. Tal recorded his debut album ”Portrait”, live at ”A-Trane” jazz club, together with Andreas Lang on Bass and Tobias Backhaus on Drums.

Fini Bearman

Fini Bearman – voice, guitar, piano and loop station
Ben Barritt – guitar, voice

London-based Singer/songwriter Fini

Once upon a time Berlin dweller, now London-based, singer/songwriter Fini Bearman brings an acoustic collection of intimate songs to Donau, together with Berlin-based guitarist and singer/songwriter Ben Barritt. Sometimes dealing with settings of poetry or pre-existing texts, and other times with original lyrics or open, wordless evocations, this music is honest yet witty, mixing lush harmony and orchestration with contemporary grooves. These songs blur the lines between songwriting and jazz, melding influences from contemporary crossover artists such as Esperanza Spalding and Becca Stevens to the songwriting canon of the 1970s: Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell and David Bowie.

Fini’s third studio album ‘Burn the Boat’ was released in Autumn 2016 and received rave reviews from both the UK and European Jazz press, including; ‘…A stunning album..A thing of unsurpassed beauty. One of the most memorable collections of self-penned songs you’ll hear this year’ **** ‘recommended’/album of 2016/ (Jazzwise), ‘Exquisitely sung…Top compositional form’(Allaboutjazz.com). The album has had extensive radio play on BBC 2, 3, BBC London, BBC Cambridge, Kent, Resonance FM and BR Klassik.

Practically Married #15: Clowns

Practically Married #15 at Donau115: CLOWNS

This month’s concert is brought about due to an irrational fear of clowns. If you’re also scared of clowns then this is the gig for you as there will be no clowns involved.

We will be playing some HOT SWINGING JAZZ with the wonderful UK based drummer Jordan Dinsdale- no clowns, guaranteed!

Declan Forde- Piano
James Banner – Double Bass
Jordan Dinsdale- Drums

____________________

James and Declan have been ‘Practically Married’ since April 2015, a name proudly awarded to them due to their ability to spend time together almost every day with only minor frustrations, and the fact that they play almost every concert together.

Since 2015 they have collaborated with Vilde&Inga, Tobias Delius, John Hollenbeck, Max Andrzejewski, João Lopes Pereira, Eric Vaughn and many more, and have become a regular fixture on the Berlin swing dance scene, performing with Ugo Alunni and The Good Old Good Ones. They also perform as part of other acts including the award-winning Rachel Sermanni and James Banner’s USINE, and have performed sold out shows at Spiegesaal and Konzerthaus Berlin (with Fabiana Striffler and Mirna Bogdanovic) and Leeds Jazz Festival in 2018. Upcoming releases are planned for 2019 with Jordan Dinsdale & Will Howard (UK), as well as Toby Delius & Max Andrzejewski playing the music of Herbie Nichols.

The playfulness and energy they bring to the music will captivate any listener and, at times, will make it hard to sit still.

Friede Merz

53220923_2279446485441470_6188097122395488256_n

Dass London eine richtungsweisende Station für Friede Merz war, wissen wir spätestens seit ihrer Debüt Single SOHO, die dem ein oder anderen sicherlich noch von der Spotify New Music Friday Playlist im
Ohr klingt. Die liebevolle Hommage an die Queer-Szene des Londoner Stadtteils hatte sich sofort in die Ohren und Herzen der Zuhörer hier und jenseits des Ärmelkanals gebohrt. Die britische Hauptstadt und
deren Musikgeschichte waren für die Hamburger Musikerin so prägend, dass sie ihre erste EP nach der geschichtsträchtigen DENMARK STREET benannt hat.
Auch Friedes zweite Veröffentlichung ist dem Einfluss der Musikmetropole gewidmet, und schlägt doch andere Töne an. DAISY LANE ist sozusagen das Negativ zur Vorgänger-EP.
Die Gitarren haben deutlich mehr Tiefe und Kante. Der Gesang ist in sämtlichen Spektren der menschlichen Gefühlswelt unterwegs und dennoch niemals sentimental, das wäre zu
einfach, zu Disney, zu vorhersehbar. Das Sanfte im Extremen zu suchen und umgekehrt ist der Antriebsmotor dieser Stücke. Und zeigt dabei nur einmal mehr die enorme Bandbreite und
Tiefe aus der die Sängerin, Gitarristin, Songschreiberin und Produzentin schöpft.
Die sechs Tracks dieser zweiten EP wurden ebenfalls in den Studios des ehemaligen Funkhaus Berlin aufgenommen und in London von Alex Killpartrick gemischt und von Mandy Parnell
(Björk, Feist, The White Stripes uvm.) gemastert. Kompromisse eingehen war noch nie Friedes Sache, schon gar nicht im Sound. Nachvollziehbar also der Schritt der jungen Künstlerin beide EPs zusammen auf eine Vinyl zu packen, die sie dank einer treuen Fanbase und einem erfolgreichen Crowdfunding dieses Jahr veröffentlichen konnte. Einen Vorgeschmack auf das neue Material gab es mit der Single-Auskopplung ALBION. Transformativ trifft es ganz gut, hatte man doch sogleich bei den ersten Tönen das Gefühl auf der Sommer-Festival Wiese im Victoria Park zu sitzen. Gar nix muss da, „whatever you do feels good to me.“ So ist es nämlich. Friede sei mit euch.

 ARNO und Die Therapie – Album Release

54523675_1690208147791856_5312526429462724608_n

Am 13. April ist es endlich soweit: Wir werden unser Debut-Album, mit dem frisch gegründenten Berliner X-Jazz Label rausbrigen und spielen anlässlich dessen eine fettes Konzert im kleinen aber feinen Donau115! Fühlt euch mehr als sehr herzlich eingeladen, an diesem Abend zu uns zu kommen und zu feiern!

Mit dabei sind:
Niko Zeidler (BujazzO, Gewinner Jugend Jazzt Berlin) – Saxophon
Alex Will (LajazzO Berlin) – Kontrabass/ E-Bass
Johannes Metzger (Gewinner Jazzpreis und Hannover) – Drums.
Arno Grußendorf (LajazzO Bayern) – Gitarre

Die vier jungen Spitzenmusiker sind 2017 am berühmten Jazz-Institut-Berlin zusammen gekommen und verschmelzen zu einer neuen Einheit: Die Therapie – Der neue Sound aus Berlin. Ein hoch-energetisches Jazz Quartett, das sich mit seinem innovativem Musikstil einen Namen in der Szene macht.

2018 wurde der Band ein Stipendium vom Verein Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now Berlin e. V. verliehen und sie erreichte das Finale des internationalen Biberacher Jazzpreises. Außerdem kollaborierte die Band im Rahmen einer beginnenden Konzertreihe mit u. a. der renommierten Pianistin Olivia Trummer, dem Trompeter Sebastian Studnitzky, dem Basisten Marc Muellbauer (Julilia Hülsmann Trio) und plant für 2019 die Zusammenarbeit mit Größen der deutschen Musik-Szene wie u. a. Malte Schiller und Sam Vance-Law.

Die Musik bewegt sich zwischen modernem Jazz, Post-Rock und Blues. Das Resultat aus melodischer Grazie, eingängigen Kompositionen, strahlender Freude beim durchaus spontanen Zusammenspiel, einem visionärem Sound mit spartanischen Gesängen und zu guter Letzt einer stimmungsvollen, improvisierten Lichtshow macht jedes Konzert zu einer einzigartigen Erfahrung, die sowohl Jazz-Experten als auch Publikum außerhalb der Szene mitreißt.

„Einschmeichelnde Notenstrecken – ohne dabei verspielt zu sein – wechseln mit klaren, schnörkellosen Klangfolgen“ – Peiner Allgemeine Zeitung

„Berliner Eleganz“ – Schwäbische Zeitung

Hörbare Einflüsse sind: John Scofield Trio, Whitest Boy Alive, Tom Misch, Carlos Bicas Azul und Chris Potters Underground.

Paul Peuker – Guitar
Florian Lauer – Drums
Tobias Fröhlich – Bass

Seit nunmehr zehn Jahren steht das Trio A X I O M für innovative und hochaktuelle Musik, die ebenso melancholische wie eruptive Erscheinungsformen annehmen kann.
Stets für ihren enormen Einfallsreichtum gelobt, hat das Trio durch den Besetzungswechsel am Bass im Jahr 2016 nochmals an Energie und Durchschlagskraft dazugewinnen können und die Versprechen der ersten beiden Alben bereits live eingelöst: Die konstante Weiterentwicklung des Gitarrentrio-Formats jenseits aller Stilgrenzen mit einer eigenen Klangsprache, deren Wurzeln sich aus einer Vielzahl von musikalischen Einflüssen speisen.
Bevor sich Peuker, Lauer und Fröhlich ins Studio zurückziehen, um das langerwartete dritte Album einzuspielen, präsentieren sie ihre neuen und älteren Kompositionen nun auf einer 10-Year-Anniversary-Tour.

Die Kölner Band Offshore ist aus der deutschen Jazzszene nicht mehr wegzudenken. Die Band veröffentlicht nun schon ihr drittes Album (bei Klaeng Records in Köln erschienen) und hat seit ihrer Gründung 2009 kontinuierlich an einem eigenen Bandsound gearbeitet. Durch an die hundert gemeinsame Konzerte (u.a. WDR Jazzfest 2013, Jazzfestival Saarbrücken 2014, Jazzrally Düsseldorf 2015 u.v.m.) und eine kollektive Herangehensweise ist ganz organisch eine Art Musik zu machen gewachsen, die auf tiefem gegenseitigen Verständnis beruht und so eine außergewöhnliche musikalische Freiheit zulässt.

Manlio Maresca – electric guitar
Eldar Tsalikov – saxophone
Igor Spallati – bass
Ugo Alunni – drums

“Glorification of errors is the basis for Manlio Maresca’s group and acclaims refined music wrongness.
The italian guitarist leads his band composed by Eldar Tsalikov on sax, Igor Spallati on bass and Ugo Alunni on drums.
The composition area he works in allows the margin of error be the foundation of a revolutionary creative discovery.
Extemporary music inspirations rule an accurate research of a “sound mistake” within a well-defined jazz structure.”

Tausend Deutsche Diskotheken – Live-Hörspiel

Mit: Laura Eichten, Fabian Raabe und Anton Weil
Regie: Michel Decar
Beginn: 21 Uhr

„Um mich herum war der ganze Raum voller Haare und Haaransätze, Girls mit amerikanischen Augenaufschlägen, Girls in fleckigen Leggins, Girls mit Meinungen, Girls, die wippten und kippten. Unterleiber rieben gegeneinander, zirkulierten durch den Raum, die Räume, die Unendlichkeit.“

So schnell kann es gehen: Eben noch sitzt Privatdetektiv Frankie wie jeden Montagabend bei Bacardi Cola in der Koralle, im nächsten Moment ist er mitten drin in seinem nächsten Auftrag: Bahnvorstand Mauke wird von einem anonymen Anrufer erpresst und der einzige Hinweis auf dessen Identität ist, dass er aus einer Diskothek anrief, in der Madonnas „White Heat“ gespielt wurde. Frankie wirft sich in seinen zucchinigrünen Opel Admiral und zieht seine Kreise, erst durch München, dann durchs Umland und schließlich durch ganz Westdeutschland. Bald ist ihm klar, dass der Teil eines Spiels ist, in dem es um Industriespionage, Verrat und Täuschung geht.

Fabiana has a unique balance of keen Intuition and Intellect that allows her to make pure music no matter what creative situation she finds herself in.“ New York 2016, Garry Dial (Grammy “live at the Village Vanguard”)

Her early years she spent with her lovely family in Italy. During her childhood she was encouraged to engage in a variety of artistic and musical activities. She studied Jazz and Classical violin in Berlin (UdK and HfM Hanns Eisler).
In 2016 she got a New York City – sponsorship to be able to work on her own music and get inspired by the New York music-scene. A year earlier she got the “Elsa-Neumann”- scholarship for compositions/performance with an modern and improvising string-quartet.
She is considered both, a brilliant violinist and a robust fiddler.
