What was originally planned as a duo in the summer of 2000, ultimately became a meeting of these three virtuosos: Guitarist Oliver Waitze is a multi-instrumentalist, author of textbooks and cofounder of the guitar specialty shop in the town of Solingen, New Acoustic Gallery; mandolin player Jesper Rübner enjoys an excellent reputation as a skilled musician with bluegrass, classical, jazz and or folk music; and double bassist Max Schaaf has earned fame as a top sideman playing besides the Gypsy-swing master guitarist Joscho Stephan.
Together, the three musicians amalgamate their qualities to form an entertaining musical ménage à trois and demonstrate stylistic versatility in the process, a high level of virtuosity and enormous joy at playing, with a repertoire that consists of hot swing, Brazilian choro and traditional bluegrass. Harmonies are woven together with elegance, the melody passes skillfully between the mandolin and the guitar and is always well cared for by a vigorous double bass. This makes “A Jazzy Note” a musical delight that is bound to thrill acoustic music fans.
