Flip Philipp & Bertl Mayer: Jazz Classics
Standards by George Gershwin, George Shearing, Randy Weston and many more

G’mischter Satz (a blended vintage) cycle

Fascinating Rhythm! On the chromatic harmonica, few musicians have achieved the same level of perfection as Bertl Mayer. This evening of jazz has been organised by Mayer and vibes player Flip Philipp. Philipp has performed alongside Natalie Cole, Joe Zawinul and Diana Ross, and his virtuoso playing has drawn comparisons with Milt Jackson. With Hans Strasser on double bass and Joris Dudli on drums, they play a set of jazz standards which have grown particularly close to their hearts over the course of their careers. These include some compositions by George Gershwin, for whom life and jazz were inseparable: “Life is a lot like jazz… It’s best when you improvise!”
