Title: Looking For Trouble
Artist: Christian Doepke Trio
Label: Jazz & Milk
Digital Release: 1st January 2012
About This Release:
In the current hype involving young German jazz pianists an exclamation mark should
be added to Christian DoepkeÂ´s name.
Lyricism and groove should not be contradictory. The same applies to pace, depth
and gracefulness, let alone swing and intelligence. In addition, the compositions of
the Amsterdam-based pianist also tell wonderful stories, which really dots the iÂ´s.
Doepke, a romantic at heart like Bill Evans â'" who gets a beautiful tribute with BillÂ´s Mood â'"
as well as a realist in the tradition of Horace Silver, has developed his own signature on
the 88 keys with a clear touch and a sovereign technique, that clearly distinguishes him
from the German jazz pianist masses.
YouÂ´ll see someone buckled down to a concert grand, who is equally familiar with sunlit
open spaces in a forest and the liveliness of a metropolis, witness â'žHeaven Knowsâ'œ and
Looking For Troubleâ'œ.
(Dr. Tobias BÃ¶cker, English translation by Emiel Wienholts)
