Timm: Morbu - Jazz Thing Next
Format: COMPACT DISC
Jonas Timm Tino Derado Bertram Burkert
Longing and grief, laughter and pleasure - all of this can be found in the music of Jonas Timm and his band, who have come together with an unusual line-up on their debut album “Morbu”. Lorenz Heigenhuber and Diego Pinera play bass and drums, nothing out of the ordinary in that respect, but there are three harmony instruments on board with the bandleader and pianist Jonas Timm, the acoustic guitarist Bertram Burkert and the accordionist Tino Derado. In less sensitive hands, this could result a blatant overtaxing of the music, but Jonas Timm and his fellow companions leave each other a lot of space and consequently do not get in each other’s way. The pianist came up with the idea for this line-up during a stay in Barcelona, and he has always been enthusiastic about Latin American music at any rate. “I was in Barcelona for half a year, which was a self-paced and easy time for me, but also very intense,” Timm recalled. "It quickly became clear to me that I absolutely want to do something with acoustic guitar as well as with accordion."
