Album Description

Phil's Music Laboratory takes you on a journey through the abysses and pearls of our society In October 2017, Phil's Music Laboratory will present their second album “Repetitive Mind”. Belonging to one of the best modern jazz ensembles they debuted at the North Sea Jazz Festival in 2016. Bandleader and composer Philipp Rüttgers presents a challenging new album full of references to the state of our current society. Philipp Rüttgers knows that he is living in a special time. Belonging to generation Y, he tries to comprehend questions such as “the gap between the rich and the poor”, “the environment” and “empathy”. Instead of looking for a straightforward answer, Rüttgers researches for emotions present in our everyday world. Rüttgers aims to express the frustrations, uncertainties, and the inner fight between ourselves and our brain, while also showing the positiveness and joy in our lives. While composing Philipp wrote these emotions into music and created a very personal and unique world of sounds for his Music Lab. Every composition tells a story without words. Titles as “Rage”, “Ambiguous times”, “Changing Landscapes” refer to politics and environment, while “The Agile Mountain Goat” takes a deep bow to mother nature. Artist Probo Guritno from Jakarta interpreted the titles and draw an incredible artwork for the Album. The result is an astonishing album with great compositions. The musicians are Philipp Rüttgers on piano, Allison Philips trumpet, Miguel Boelens alto/soprano sax, Nils van Haften tenor sax/basklarinet, Kobi Arditi trombone, Tobias Nijboer bass and Felix Schlarmann drums. While their first album was a live concert, this time they chose the great acoustics of the famous Fattoria Musica studio in Osnabrück. Esteemed engineer Chris Weeda knows how to capture the warm sound of the ensemble. An energetic rhythm section with beautiful arrangements on top and incredible soloists. These seven musicians each bring their own identity to the music and thus create the necessary friction we experience in everyday life.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
