Dot Time Records International Artists Series
Live Recording Concert at Studio Nord Bremen
Dot Time Records (DTR) is pleased to announce an exciting new concert series for 2018 named
Studio Nord Sessions
This new concert series will feature Dot Time Record artists performing in the intimate and warm surroundings of Studio Nord Bremen. Known for its impressive acoustic vintage recording abilities, each concert will also be recorded and released as a special limited edition vinyl under the Dot Time Records Vinyl brand as the Studio Nord Sessions.
“I have always felt that a recording studio was a perfect place for concertizing.” said Dot Time Records founder Jo Bickhardt. “For an artist to connect with their audience to bring out the fullness of the emotional nuances are difficult to assume in a studio recording. By involving a studio audience, it also places the attendee in the element of the recording, therefore making them a part of the shared experience. Studio Nord Bremen is the perfect environment to capture these acoustic properties and elements. I am excited to partner with them for this concert series and look forward to creating more of these types of events for our artists.”
The Concert Series Dates are:
May 12th, featuring vocalist Deborah Carter with Zandscape
June 16th, featuring Brazilian vocalist Martie with Marco Lobo
September 22nd featuring Spanish Trumpet Master David Pastor
December 9th featuring Italian vocalist Chiara Izzi .
The first concert in the series on May 12, 2018 will feature Deborah Carter with Zandscape. This Netherland based vocalist / composer / arranger will definitely bring her multi – cultural experiences into this performance. Described by Music Maker magazine as “absolutely top-class”, she is one of the most dynamic vocalists in the jazz scene. Zandscape, under the direction of Mark Zandveld features vibraphone, guitar, bass and drums, playing intricate arrangements that leave plenty of room for extensive, and at times collective improvisation.
