Axel Herr is a German virtuoso pianist and composer. His musical vita started as young teenager when he was playing the piano in a boogie band. With his early classical piano etudes he even won a composition contest at the age of 15! Later on Axel Herr developped a very special and unique improvisation style on his piano combining jazz and classical elements.
The Voice Of December was his first semi-professional production recorded already in winter 2000/2001. All tracks featured on this album were played in a live-style atmosphere straight to disk without any overdubs! Many copies on CD-R were sold just by word-to- mouth recommendation without any marketing! Being out of stock for over two years Tunimedia proudly signed Axel Herr for an online-only re-release of these unique, exceptional improvisations in 2007.
