New Music Video of #JazzPiano: “City to Seaside” by Uli Lenz

From German jazz piano extraordinaire, Uli Lenz, the original composition by Mr. Lenz performed live in solo concert on Dec. 12, 2016 at Piano Salon Christophori in Berlin, Germany. With a fast moving, fun tempo, the music was set to pace in the video created by Flying With Red Haircrow Productions and titled, “City to Seaside.”

Uli Lenz is a well renown jazz pianist and musical ambassador from Germany, who has played around the world. In Kenya, he was called “The man who dances on the keys” due to his energetic style and superb skills, having a particularly strong left hand. Lenz is considered a brilliant technician, and has worked with such legendary musicians such as: Victor Jones on drums, Joe Chambers and Horacio El Negro Hernandez, Cecil McBee on bass, Ira Coleman and Ed Schuller, as well as artists such as Steve Grossman, Hannibal Marvin Peterson and François Jeanneau. Discography, biography and “where to buy” links are available at his website http://ulilenz.com/.

NEW! The Poetry & Piano Project: “Conejitos Amarillos”

NEW! From Flying With Red Haircrow Productions:

Poetry can be many things & come in many forms: just like jazz! “Conejitos Amarillos” is a short energetic piece composed and performed by client and friend, the German jazz pianist Uli Lenz, combined with a poem by Red Haircrow.

Inspired by Lenz’s thoughts on the song’s creation and the combination of jazz and animation in the iconic Tom & Jerry cartoons, Red Haircrow created a simple but fast moving musical story of comedic gravity about the idiosyncracies of rabbits.

“Poetry & Piano” is an on-going collaboration and project.

The 105 Lenz-Kubach-Johnson Jazz Trio: 22 Nov. at Gemeinschaftshaus Gropiusstadt

collageAs cozy and welcoming as their 16 November performance at the Kellergalerie was, though the “love” was great, seating was limited. Upcoming on Friday, 22 November, however, there is a larger opportunity for jazz lovers to see the trio in a venue where their music can truly echo!

Located in the Neukölln district of Berlin, Germany, Gemeinschaftshaus Gropiusstadt is a center where cultural development is advocated and encouraged, and the music of The 105 would certainly qualify at culturally enriching and appealing to people from all backgrounds, ethnicities and countries.
