DR. SYROS

In times like these you need groups. Bands. Bringing people together within a creative process. Calling on this plain fact Stuttgart native Martin Soros promptly brought together four of the most sought-after and prolific musicians of the young German jazz scene and founded his R and B infused jazz ensemble Dr. Syros. Take Munich-based trumpeter Julian Hesse for example who during the past years has established himself as an inventive and technically superb instrumentalist and composer, or Daniel Mudrack, who is not only a sublime drummer, but also responsible for innovative sound concepts as can be heard on the debut album. Grounded by gig-hardened bassist and jazz laureate Sebastian Schuster the band is indeed moving forward, leaving behind stereotypes and not giving a dime about styles and definitions. Whether one wants to call it jazz or hip hop is up to the critics- fact is that four intriguing musicians come together celebrating the musical moment. So, lean back and listen or get on your feet and dance. Both are possible with this debut album from Dr. Syros.
