Powerful, swinging, modern jazz that pays homage to the 50s and 60s with original compositions à la Jazz Messengers, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, etc. The trumpet player Bodo Maier leads his quintet with an intensely swinging vibe he learned from growing up on Louis Armstrong & His All Stars. Using this vibe and his fresh original compositions, he skillfully bridges the gap of jazz tradition to modern day.
In addition to extroverted energetic moments, he also gives insight into the introverted, melancholic world of the trumpet with fascinating ballads.
The music is influenced and enriched by the different nationalities of the musicians that Bodo Maier has gotten to know during his career. His last EP was recorded in London, with musicians from England, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Hong Kong and Australia and one can expect a varied program that takes the listener on an inspiring and uplifting journey.
