Debut album for Germany's shooting star on the keyboards, Simon Oslender. A mature feeling for time and how to use it in the right way, when to strike a note or a chord and - even more importantly -when to refrain from doing so. The usage of rests and space as a creative, dramatic element. All this is usually expected from top-level musicians, qualities that - and this seems to be the consensus -develop over the years and need a large amount of performance practice; in short: they are a result of "age". But sometimes this does not happen. We all know the sayings: "feeling" - you either have got it or you don't; or: virtuoso but without any feeling; or: lots of feeling but technically rather inexperienced. Considering his youthful age, it might come as a surprise that Simon Oslender already combines all these qualities in his performance. The 21-year-old Oslender, a steady member of Wolfgang Haffner & Band and Bill Evans & Spykillers, shows his talent on this incredible good debut album. Beside his regular band members Bruno Müller (guitar), Hanno Busch (guitar), Claus Fischer (bass), Hendrik Smock (drums), and Roland Peil (percussion), this album features Wolfgang Haffner on drums, Bill Evans on saxophone, Randy Brecker on trumpet, and the very special guests Cosmo Klein and Peter Fessler on vocals. Great grooves and melodies combined with a soulful playing - it's about time for Simon Oslender. Also features Christopher Dell.
