Dear friends,

I hope you all had a good and healthy start into 2022!
Looking at the photos of last year, I am really thankful for the wonderful concerts we had with my trio. We also were invited to play some festivals with fantastic musicians like the legendary Franco Ambrosetti, the great Johannes Enders and trombone virtuoso Adrian Mears. Two of these concerts were recorded by the Bayerische Rundfunk - the broadcast from Birdland in Neuburg will be broadcasted on April 29, 2022.
In September last year, Adrian Mears and I had an amazing time being on tour in Namibia (where I grew up as a child). Invited by the German Embassy we played several duo concerts in Windhoek and Swakopmund, did radio interviews and met some very nice and interesting people. Heartfelt thanks to the German Embassy and to everyone involved for an unforgettable time!
I also enjoyed teaching at the European Jazz Workshop in Santa Sofia/Italy, where our students from Dr. Hoch’s Konservatorium/Frankfurt got the possibility to work and play with students from Italy, Poland and Turkey. What a joy, to experience the beautiful town, the great food and overwhelming Italian hospitality and to play and hang with the teachers and students from all these different countries. After an online workshop we did before, it was wonderful to finally meet again in real life!

Despite the ongoing pandemic, my trio started this year with a sold out concert at the Unterfahrt in Munich. At the beginning of March we will be on tour in the north of Germany. Thanks to the Jazzverband Baden-Württemberg for the support! I can’t wait to team up with the guys again and play some new compositions and meet old and new friends! Hope to see you there!!!!

Jazz Baden-Württemberg

Best wishes,
Anke
