Excerpt from the booklet:
(...) JOE SACHSE solo - a synonym for uncompromising drive, thrilling dynamism and technical brilliance. Whatever SACHSE puts his hand on reveals such complexity that one gets the impression he is involved in an exercise of self-duplication. He embodies both the brilliance of a solo-performer and the solidity of an accompanist, occasionally confronts himself as alter ego, enters into self-dialogue and produces orchestral blankets of sound. (...)
It is his musical language - made up of particles of handed down tradition and his own ideas - which makes JOE SACHSE stand out against the tradition of jazz while linking him with the genre. (...)
The quality of his playing goes beyond the level of technical perfection and breath-taking tricks. It is the will to communicate that unites him with the bards of the Blues and classical Jazz musicians. The musical construction JOE SACHSE builds before our very ears reveals a strength of a sensitive disposition. SACHSE constructs mobile architecture of sound, moved by intense emotion and almost indiscernible vibrations. (…)
This is a live recording with no overdubbing or special effects. SACHSE´s musical personality can clearly be detected in the interplay of the rhythmically percussive with harmonious and melodious elements, often linking and overlapping different methods and techniques. (…)
The EUROPEAN HOUSE presents us with a fascinating insight into SACHSE´s workshop of sound.
