Philipp Schiepek

”When you listen to this music and are ready to get involved with it, doors open to a diverse universe of cross-genre impulses.” (Elke Walter)

Munich based guitarist Philipp Schiepek and his quartet, featuring Henning Sieverts on bass, Bastian Jütte on drums and New York based Seamus Blake on saxophone, present their debut album “GOLEM DANCE”, which has just been released by ENJA-Records.

When composing, Philipp Schiepek draws inspiration from everyday encounters, but also from characters from literature and art.

The first and foremost goal of every composition is to carry an intensity that is not conveyed by volume, but rather by rhythmic and harmonic flexibility. His compositions are characterized by sometimes complex, but not overly intellectual themes. Instead, he always makes sure that all musicians can improvise freely and that the ease of playing is not lost.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
