Schipmann/Ludwig – The Human Element
Sunday 29 September, doors open 7.30pm
Melodic original jazz combining UK and Germany influences
Originally from Cologne, Germany, guitarist Gero Schipmann has been an active part of London’s vibrant jazz scene for the past three years. Together with Cologne-based saxophonist and composer Johannes Ludwig, the two lead the Schipmann/Ludwig UK Quintet, a highly prolific band featuring some of the UK’s most sought after musicians, uniting the unique jazz scenes of England and Germany.
Gero Schipmann and Johannes Ludwig are close friends that share a musical identity that’s powerful and imaginative. Both of them compose for this quintet, their music sounds different yet fits together so naturally as if it was meant to be all along. Both are exciting virtuosos on their respective instrument and are joined by one of the hottest rhythm sections in the UK – Sam Leak on piano, Max Luthert on bass and Will Glaser on drums. Their music goes deep, reveals human desire, allows human error and inspires the listener to embrace everything that makes life worth living.
