Sommer, Günter 'Baby' - Baby's Party

SKU 34-Intakt 303
Günter Baby Sommer: Drums, Percussion
Till Brönner: Trumpet, Flügelhorn, Electronics

"Baby Sommer is at the height of his musical career. After 'Song for Kommeno', his Solo masterpiece 'Dedications' and the duo with American trumpet player Wadada Leo Smith 'Wisdom In Time', he presents at his 75th birthday a duo recording with German trumpet player Till Brönner. The listeners will notice quite quickly how relaxed Till Brönner and Baby Sommer correspond, the chosen musical material included. We experience the meeting of two musicians who have found a common language despite their personal distinctness; who do not need to prove anything to anybody. That is why their very first ever recording is fed by a basic calmness. Had Baby's Party not been chosen to become this CDs title, the last piece – the Duke's 'In a Sentimental Mood' – would have made an equally well fitting title. Not in the sense of a yearning retrospection but – according to the two musicians' natural disposition – in the sense of an invincible preview of what is ahead of them."
