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 starting in 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 in 2019 are:
May 11th, featuring italian pianist Andrea Rea with his Trio.
September 28th featuring the New Yorker singer Adrienne West with her Trio.
October 12th featuring young german pianist Conrad Schwenke with his quartet.
December 7th featuring Italian vocalist Simona Parrinello .
Mai 11th At the age of 17, the neapolitan pianist Andrea Rea founded the DEA Trio with double-bass player Daniele Sorrentino. They became a very popular trio that has won several contests.
After countless concerts and collaborations Andrea decided to change the musical direction of his trio. He began looking for music that suited this specific trio and he lets all his influences shine through, with each song expressing a different character.
All three musicians here have plenty of experience playing with many of the big names in the Italian jazz scene, but in this trio they seem to have found a unity that blends their playing into a warm and recognisable sound of its own.
