More Info:

Henning Sieverts - Bassolo / Sometimes it sounds extremely delicate, sometimes grippingly groovy - everything seems possible in this "one bass show". / "Henning Sieverts is a brilliant bassist, who has the stylistic means of new music as well as those of jazz at his disposal." (FAZ) All alone, but together with his double bass - that is the new solo program of the Munich star bassist Henning Sieverts. Sometimes it is extremely delicate here, sometimes also grippingly groovy - plucked, bowed, stroked and tapped - everything seems possible in this "one bass show". The album "Bassolo" was recorded in the fantastic acoustics of the Auferstehungskirche in Munich. All pieces of the recording are summarized in a music booklet "Henning Sieverts: Bassolo", in two versions each: plucked and bowed, with and without improvised parts. Henning Sieverts is in demand worldwide as a bassist, cellist and composer. His discography includes over 150 CDs. Concerts and tours have taken Sieverts to all five continents. He has received numerous awards, such as the "Echo Jazz", the New German Jazz Award (even 2x!), the first prize at the Jazz Competition of the "International Society of Bassists" and the State Promotion Prize of the Free State of Bavaria. Henning Sieverts regularly gives composition and instrumental workshops in bass and cello, among others at the music academies of Zurich, Lucerne, Bern and Nuremberg. He is a lecturer in jazz bass at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich. In addition, Sieverts works as a jazz presenter for Bayerischer Rundfunk.
