Label: Nicole Johanntgen
Still only in her mid-thirties, Zurich-based German alto saxophonist/composer Nicole Johänntgen has been performing and tirelessly exploring music for over twenty years. With half a dozen recordings as leader under her belt, Johänntgen turns to New Orleans for inspiration on Henry. Named after her father, who used to play trombone in lieu of an early morning alarm clock for the young Johänntgen, the songs were written during a six-month sojourn in New York and recorded in the Crescent City. The Big Apple's energy transposes itself on the traditional Nawlins template, resulting in a vibrant and spirited set of originals.
