Plays the Music of Jimi Hendrix (feat. Billy Cobham)
Hiram Bullock

HIRAM BULLOCK plays the music of Jimi Hendrix feat, Billy Cobham & WDR BIG BAND Cologne WDR BIG BAND and Hendrix - what's that all about? Well, one may consider it simply outrageous to breathe the spirit of Hendrix into an orchestral ensemble. However, the world-renowned WDR BIG BAND takes on a subdued tone and gives just the right kind of tone to Hendrix classics like `Foxy Lady`, `Voodoo Child`, `Manic Depression`, and many other titles. The ensemble is
joined by star drummer Billy Cobham, one of the founding members of the Mahavishnu Orchestras, who played with Miles Davis, Michael Brecker, Dean Brown, and many other great artists. Did anybody say that a big band cannot rock? Well... Leader, singer, guitarist Hiram Bullock proves that rock classics with a funky, jazzy sound can sound just great. A `Voodoo Child` after all, that Bullock adapted & arranged by Bernd Lechtenfeld rec. in 2004 at the University Cologne Mixed 2008 at WDR Studio, Cologne

Sweet Otherwise
Heather Greene

Dress to success – even in second hand

If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere. The fascination of the “Big Apple” as a career starting point remains unchanged. With countless clubs and a population that keeps hunting for novelty, the city is the ideal stage for musicians of all genres. The singer-songwriter scene has been deeply rooted within New York for a long time. Here, the folk and protest movement around Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, and Judy Collins bloomed in the Sixties. Here, Leonard Cohen had his breakthrough. And it was from here that Adam Green started capturing an international audience with his eccentric anti-folk.

Heather Greene lives in New York as well. Her compositions, ranging from pop, jazz, and folk to country, are bittersweet and come with a tinge of irony and sarcasm. Originally from Detroit, the artist has played countless gigs in legendary New York clubs like the “Tonic” and Joes Pub, gaining local recognition. Two years ago, her debut album “Five Dollar Dress” made her “the” new sensation of the New York underground music scene. On „Sweet Otherwise“, Heather Greene presents her own version of modern singing-songwriting: a stunning multitude of styles ranging from delicately painted melodies, smoothly arranged, melancholy tracks to earthy rhythms and pulsating bass lines – and no end of exciting refrains. “I wanted melodies you would keep humming after the song is over”, she smiles humbly.

Tracklisting:
Hey Wait,Why, Don’T You Say Yes, Let It Slide, What I mean, Get Up And Go, (You are) So nice To Listen To, Moon Hangs Fire, Space, In The Game, Come And Play, Something New

Vans Joint
Bill Evans

Throughout his celebrated career, Bill Evans has explored a wide range of musical idioms, from straight ahead jazz to hip-hop, fusion, funk, soul, pop and bluegrass.
But on Vans Joint, he treads into some exciting new territory for the first time.
This triumphant collaboration between the veteran saxophonist-composer-bandleader and the 20-piece WDR Big Band Cologne is a match made in heaven. Recorded live in concert in Germany, this powerhouse offering features Evans with the dream rhythm tandem of electric bassist Mark Egan and drummer extraordinaire Dave Weckl fueling the well-oiled machine that is the WDR Big Band, under the direction of conductor-arranger Michael Abene. The results are exhilarating and even surprising to the saxophonist himself. “For me, to hear my charts with a big band just blew my mind,” says Evans. “Michael did such as great job. It was magical the way he enriched the songs, how he created colors and new harmonies in different sections and just took the music one step further. So it was a real trip to be involved in this project, and a lot of fun too.”
