But definitely I have to add someone else, a highly appreciated German artist of my younger days, through whom I came to jazz.
Still valued, here his latest album:
“A jazz album without frippery, a pleasurable leap into the past without any hint of nostalgia, a lot of fun and, last but not least, another damn good story.”
The german wiki for the band:
It seems like I’m always looking for another genre connection to jazz. I respond well via electronic or downtempo and then enjoy the influences of jazz presented by De-Phazz or DePhazz depending on the spelling.
This album is certainly not for friends of the charts. Here East German rock groups play on, which are not known even in West Germany by every rocker.
a few pictorial suggestions
Ludwig Güttler a conductor and trumpeter of world renown was born in 1943 in the Erzgebirge. The leading trumpet virtuoso literally has a full professorship for trumpet and a large body of work that needs to be further explored. I am grateful that Roon keeps reminding me of my narrow knowledge of classical music and expands it with this community. I gladly give back ideas and thoughts on worthwhile music in all genres that I listen too.
I see so many recommendations where I need to work my way in, but will in the coming years, God willing.
We will get a bit closer to the Saxon virtuosos with this presentation.
Thanks to the Roon team for making this experience possible.
Also a German band. And this album sounds really good (speaking for the original master!).
Irish-Folk-Rock made in Germany. The first track of this album called “Land of Green” is one of my all time favourites!
That’s a great reminder, doesn’t exist in streaming and were already resolved in the early 90s. Youtube still has it:
and it is also part of my collection.
I am and allways be a CD guy, and luckily I bought this album. Sounds so much better than the YT-Video
I got another one. This time a bit more obscure. It’s a mix out of Metal and Hardrock with the instrumentation you would rather consider with Chamber Music. Coppelius call their style of music “Kammercore” based on “Kammermusik” and “Metalcore”.
I would classify them with Prog.Rock if only this album is rated. A genre that I listen to and collect, but here is total absence with me. I also can not immediately include it in my music heart.
Hmmm, they kind of fitting in Prog.Rock and kind of don’t. It’s definitley not the first genre I am thinking of when I’m listening to their music.
But I do understand for not liking them, it’s a very special maybe odd sound.
Felix Klieser is a professinal german musician, who plays his French Horn with his feet. He was born without arms and mastered his instrument on an alternative way.
A band from Bavaria (Ingolstadt) with an interesting genre mix of ska, punk, country and some more.
The tracks “How To Be Happy”, “Eeasy Street” and “Lonesome Road” are highly recomended.
now we feed once again the Germany corner with a pure German genre. Here really the good old German Schlager of the 50s and 60s.

Not really my type of music, but indeed very German.
And that’s the beautiful on music, there are so many different genres, everyone gonna find something for his/her liking.
I am glad that I like so many genres. I once thought I couldn’t listen to rap/hip-hop because I didn’t like it. But if you look closer at it with the experts (my nephew), you realize, hey, there’s some really good music. Here there are also some experts with metal, classical and jazz area, they have very interesting recommendations.
Actually, they say that the listening habits are already pronounced in youth. That may be true for many preferences, but I did not combine new age with hard rock or punk / new wave with old hits. I used to find folk music terrible and also immediately deselected Discofox, now I listen more closely everywhere.
But this also makes me a difficult case for automatic recommendation systems. With family accounts and easy presorting I then also have the nice subtleties in each genre and so I came across the very old German music of the 50s and 60s. There was then even the interest aroused to dive into even older vintages.
The music lover of classical music would recommend to wander not only decades, but centuries through the music. Of course, these good roots must never be forgotten, otherwise nothing will grow.
