GERMANY: Jilman Zilman, Simon Nabatov ‎– The Loft Recording(GLM 2018)

 Tilman Herpichböhm describes his new record “The Loft Recordings”. The album was named after the recording location, the Loft in Cologne. The not quite ordinary line-up consisting of drums (Tilman Herpichböhm), ​​piano, Fender Rhodes, synthesizer (Simon Nabatov), ​​alto saxophone (Julian Bossert), alto saxophone (Johannes Ludwig) and double bass (Peter Christof) is appearing especially good in this unfolding free space. There, the alto saxophones can meet sonically, in order to completely alienate themselves again in the next moment – they are the figurehead of the band. Simon Nabatov is new to the crew, after joint concerts Tilman Herpichböhm wrote the pieces especially for him, making him part of Jilman Zilman. He brings a breath of fresh air to the band – together new and playful compositional and improvisational possibilities are explored. .GLM
