The Balcony Blues Fonky World  Sneeky C Vienna Got The Blues
You‘re So Mean Blues Indeed  Need A Wah Guitar
Bad Day‘s Blues I‘m Sliding
Red White Blues

As Rens Newland's roots were in the 1960s Blues, the Electric Blues of John Mayall, Eric Clapton and in Holland Cuby & the Blizzards or Living Blues. and he always tried to keep this deep music feeling in all the projects and styles he did in the meantime, it was no big jump to get back into that and make a Blues album. He and his friend Peter Gruber (bass player) were talking now and then in the last years, that they should do such a project together! Now finally in the Corona times, they did it. Finding the right singer is not easy, but they found him: Ric Toldon is a cool american guy (is also percussionist) living in Vienna, who even met Jimi Hendrix and was around at Woodstock and when the Stones played in the USA. As drummer the young Simon Springer was their first choice, as well as Rens' main keyboard man Martin Wöss for the piano and synth additions. The basic sound is of course build on Mr. Newland's guitars, here he used some of his dearest instruments, like Gibson ES 335 and L5, Fender Strato and Tele, Godin Red Line, Parker Fly and Takamine Acoustic Steel. The Tracks show the broad possibilities of the Blues in form and sound: Delta Blues, Funkblues, Jazzblues, Rockblues, Acoustic Blues and more. Some instrumental tracks are of course also part of the concept! All the music is by the bandleader and most of the lyrcs, some are by Ric Toldon, like "Sneeky C" with humour and desperation at the same time.

One Man Show (radio edit) Jazz-Zenész
Love Won´t Wait (feat. Susan Blake on Trombone)
Minden Jó Shut Up! I´m Not In Love With You 
Have You Seen Mr Green? I Say Thank You

All the songs on this album are written by Susan Blake (words & music)! She did lots of touring with Dixieland bands - especially some from Hungary - ever since she left schools. One of these bands is the MISKOLC DIXIELAND BAND, which is the fine backing group on this record. As a composer Susan Blake is quite succesful: in the last years, while doing some more country stuff as a singer, in two following years she won prizes for the best song - composer and lyricist - at the Austrian Country Awards! Here on these recordings she came back to her Dixie roots, but in a delicate mix with Mainstream Jazz, Pop and Country influences. The songs sound positve and light, as if you already know them, the lyrics are with a lot of humour, about love and life. There is also a lot of room for the bands soloists and on the title track Miss Blake takes a solo on the trombone, one of her additionnal instruments.

Martins Song Nuages Game Of Elements
Love For Everybody Hope Of Universe
Around The Lake Krokus Rebel

This is the 5th album of Diknu Schneeberger and marks a new milestone in his career: It's the NEW Diknu Schneeberger Trio with two fellow musicians of his own age. These are actually live recordings, BUT in the Corona crisis, so a stream wthout audience - like a live radio studio sesion! It's a nice combination of clear sound plus fresh and sassy playing/improvising! Almost all of the tracks are compositions by the bandleader himself. Just one Django Reinhardt song made it into the programm: Nuages!

Tribe Trio Tracks

Silent to Strong Wild Coolness  Careful & Curious Sweet Little Devil  
Funny Smart Boy Sage & Singing Good Girl, Mad Girl  Creative Guy 
Wonderful Innocence Jolly, Tough and Tireless 
Feeling Fine Against All Odds The Steady One

These are basically trio versions of all the songs from my former "solo" album "Family Trax", which are dedicated to his people (his tribe). The first production was very precise and with emphasis on the compositions and the many different guitars. Here on these recordings he got the thing more powerful, groovy and vivid by the added drums and bass. It brings up other essences of the characters he describes here. it's an unusual idea indeed to release two different versions of the same material! The musical styles go from Funk and Jazz to Rock and Hip-Hop, but all in his range of taste!
Again he used a lot of different guitars out of his collection to get the right sound to each vision.

Lilibets Dance  Besinnung 
Elisabeth  Hochzeitswalzer
Winnetou und Old Shatterhand

Christian Havel and Erwin Schmidt are a sworn harmonic team since some decades already:
they understand and feel each other perfectly and are reaching an extremly high level in playing and phrasing together as well as complementing each other in sounds.
They choosed to dedicate these recordings to their wifes, and in general to the WOMEN of the world.
For this purpose each of them made some special compositions and they added some fitting originals plus two standards to complete this fine album.
Erwin Schmidt plays the grand piano as well as the Hammond Organ. Christian Havel plays his great Jazz guitar and does some lead singing, too.
Both did also some backvocals.

This is a very emotional, interesting and important project by guitar artists Rens Newland
With a very precise composing system he made melody modules, blocks or modules
(how you like to call it), constructed out of the names of the people of his tribe. Additionally he tried to weave their personalities, their characters,
music tastes and moods into the compositions and arrangements.
The musical styles go from Funk and Jazz to Rock and Hip-Hop, but all in his range of taste!
Again he used a lot of different guitars out of his collection to get the right sound to each vision.

A very big sound and a great hard bop melodic material, that are the treasures that Raklo Weinrich presents to us on these recordings. Fine round exclusively original compositions of the bandleader create a very pleasant atmosphere: soft sounding, but enough interesting lines we hear from all the musicians: Martin Wöss on Rhodes, Synth and Grand Piano, Werner Feldgrill on Electric Bass, Wolfi Rainer on Drums, Rainer Gradischnig on Percussion, Herwig Gradischnig on Tenor Sax (on selected titles). Groovy beats from Swing to Funk. A fine Bossa features the lady-singer Jacqueline Patricio.

6 About Light 7 Let's Get Musiphysical
9 Listen to your Ears 10 Bluesbooster 
12 About Tears

A broad spectrum of his composing as well as his playing is showed here of Rens Newland. He choose to double all the melodies with the Tenor Sax of master Herb Berger, because in the several gigs and recordings Rens found out, that the blend is perfect between him and Herb! Also the other fellow musicians, Wolfi Rainer on drums, Andy Mayerl on upright bass and Martin Wöss on piano act very keen and tasty, leaving room for the melodies and improvisations. The Bandleader uses a lot of different electric guitars, from the Jazz Gibson L5 to Fender Tele, even the Line 6 Variax makes wonderful appearences.
The style goes from easy going Groove Jazz and some light Funk to interesting Fusion ballads and Jazz sounds.
