…the music flows like a stream…drags along different influences…taking them to new banks to become something new…the power of the groove works like a maelstrom on the sound...the sounds break through this torrent…fertile ground for new musical colours and shapes is emerging…the musicians’ diverse experiences affect each other…one takes from another…the source springs from different arms…the mouth is one…
In short sax-player Andreas Grosskopf might as well be the year 2006 version
of Klaus Doldinger of Passport (and if you don't know who Klaus Doldinger is,
just imagine an electric sax player who is a cross between Maceo Parker and
Eddie Harris). That is how badd he is and that's how badd the album File
Under G is. A few years ago he released an album of powerhouse Jazz-Funk
which we reviewed called Type: G. This time out for File Under G the
results are similar, however Grosskopf up's the anty by also featuring the
beautiful vocals of Charlotte Karlstedt on several cuts
