Christian Eckert



...Christian Eckert is one of the increasingly rare breed of composers who can tell coherent stories. His supply of pithy ideas, melodies and investigations seem sheer endless. That he wanted to forge a bridge to the great Blue Note label era is clear from the first tone: warm sounds, clear linear guidance and a quartet of outstanding musicians... Without doubt a lucky strike.
Matthias Creutziger

Genuine jazz thrives on risk. And in a time in which garish effects and changing fashion are in demand, the greatest risk a musician can take is to stand up to his feelings. To tell truthful stories in his improvisations, as Lester Young once demanded. The German guitarist Christian Eckert is such a classical storyteller. One who prefers to acknowledge his romantic sensibility or reveal his melancholy moods rather than to get carried away with soulless fingerboard sprints.
