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.

Gentle Rain - Duo Certitude Sweetheart Boogle Woogle

Christian Havel is without doubt one of the leading Jazz guitarists of Europe. On this album he gathered four very strong collegues for his international quintet. The recording session also features the great voice and musical skills of Lori Williams. Your ears will be pleased by a very variant row of mainly original works by the band, peppered with some nice standards. Moods from balladesque over swinging to groovy.

One Nite Samba

Suddenly And Unexpected One Nite Samba
Lisa‘s Privacy Love Words Count 

This great quartet around the highly talented Jazz pianist Robert Schönherr takes us on a journey through several colours and styles. The leader plays Grand Piano as good as the Fender Rhodes and the melodies are mostly played by the outstanding saxophone player Herwig Gradischnig (a Jive Music Artist as well!). His tone is smooth and wonderful, the lines smart and modern. Drummer Mario Gonzi, as always, is impulsive and sometimes crazy driving and the bass of Joschi Schneeberger makes the solid bottom! As a guest the ladysonger Alexandra Schenk is giving us some nice relaxing spots. Not a one nite thing!

Soundtrack to my life From Dneper to Danube 

Turnstone European Peace

Myroslav Levytsky(p) and Rens Newland(g), both great personalities on their instruments, came together the first time in 2001. In the following years a cooperation developed itself between Braty Bluzu (the band of Myroslav and his brother Oleg) and Rens Newland. Myroslav has classical and eastern roots, Rens has Blues, Rock and Jazz, so western roots. This is the very interesting and sensitive meeting of these two worlds!
