Erich Zann Ensemble “Bieber Sessions”

Artist: Erich Zann Ensemble
Title: Bieber Sessions
Format: CD, Digital
Label: self-released
Genre: Acid Jazz, Neo-Kraut, Psychedelic
Release Date: 08/03/2024

The Erich Zann Ensemble consists of a changing line-up of different musicians who from time to time gather around bassist and electronic musician Frank Incense who is a member of the German Kraut Rock Line-up The Sun Or The Moon

Based on a 1970s psychedelic free jazz piece by the legendary trumpet virtuoso don cherry, sprawling improvisation sessions unfolded on a hot weekend in the summer of 2023 at the vernerable Tonstudio Bieber in Offenbach, Germany. In addition to Frank Incense, several musicians from the jazz and world music scene were involved. The recordings of the sessions were then lovingly edited and supplemented by further guest musicians. 

In the slightly surreal world of the Erich Zann Ensemble, various shades of pop music mix with ambient, progressive, jam-like, electronic, jazzy, experimental and – incredibly important! – hardly tangible sounds.
