Joe Haider: "For over sixty years I have been on the road as a jazz pianist / composer / arranger / educator, and as yet there is no end in sight. I am already 84 now, but still fresh and lively. But it sounds like the final stage, or overtime with a penalty shootout afterwards, to use football jargon. Nevertheless, I have to see how I can continue. In my long career I have been able to get to know many fellow musicians and to take part in many concerts as a pianist and bandleader. I am infinitely grateful for that. This sextet is my latest project, which I planned for my so-called final phase in music: it is a three-generation band."
