MAUSI (QUARTET
MAURER-SITTER), feat.
JACK WALRATH

chill the rock and jazz it…

Christian Maurer (A), Primus Sitter (A), Marc
Abrams (USA) und Herbert Pirker (A) unternehmen diese gemeinsame Reise auf
einfühlsame und gleichzeitig individuelle Weise – vier international versierte
Musiker auf neuen Wegen…

Die
musikalischen Begegnungen von Christian Maurer und Primus Sitter begannen vor
ca. 15 Jahren. Seit 2005 spielt Primus Sitter bei Christian Maurers „Upper
Austrian Jazz Orchestra“. Bald entstand die Idee, dass die Musikwelten der
beiden unbedingt auch in flexibler Quartettformation zum Ausdruck kommen
müssen… Beide Musiker sind kompositorisch tätig – ein essentieller Punkt am Weg
zur unverwechselbaren Gestaltung der gemeinsamen Basis. Mit Marc Abrams
(spielte u.a. mit Chet Baker, Gil Evans,…) und Herbert Pirker (Hans Koller
Preis 2004) kommt eine Rhythmusgruppe zum Einsatz, die den Bogen zwischen
Tradition und Moderne in müheloser und persönlicher Weise zu spannen vermag.
Jack Walrath arbeitet seit 1999 regelmäßig mit dem UAJO und Christian Maurer.
Aus dieser Zusammenarbeit fruchtete 2001 die CD „You got my wife, but I got
your dog”. Nach einigen Konzerten im Quartett fand man, dass Jack Walrath die
Ideale Stimme sei, um das Quartett um einen zweiten Bläser zum Quintett zu
erweitern. Jack, eifriger Komponist schon für Charles Mingus, die Big-Bands
von,WDR, NDR und UMO und auch das Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra steuert ebenfalls
Kompositionen zum Programm bei.

be explored further when Jackson joined Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters), he was
also leader of the MINGUS DYNASTY and THE CHARLES MINGUS BIG BAND. In addition,

Jack Walrath started playing the trumpet at the age of 9 in 1955 while living
in Edgar, Montana, a bustling metropolis with the population of 100 (It has
since become virtually a ghost town!). He developed a healthy perception of
music from lack of negative peer pressure which so often happens in cities. In,
1964 after graduating from Joliet, MT. Highschool, he attended the Berklee
College of Music graduating in 1968 with a composition diploma. The diploma program
was chosen over that of the degree in order to have classes only of music,
therefore actually learning more about music than if he went for a degree! Also
he considers his 40 years of major professional experience as the best
education of all!

„One of the most
continually compelling soloists and leaders in all of jazz.”
Nat Hentoff

„One player who started his
career in Mingus’ last band was Jack Walrath, who has emerged in latter years
as a composer and organizer astonishingly on a par with the master.”
Stephen M. Stroff
Discovering Great Jazz
Newmarket Press N.Y.

„His playing has the
articulate sarcasm of a Lee Morgan, his writing reflects the eclecticism and
bravura of his former mentor Charles Mingus.”
Chip
Stern
