About

„In 1999, during the recordings of our first album „Things in Common“, our closeness as artists and the pleasure of a playful approach to music was the driving force of our common work. We then considered our duo as still being in its „experimental phase“. Ten years after – our present recording „The time we spend“ is a good example of what comes out if you accept the challenge of further experimentation.”

Two guitars, two generations, two careers but still combined through one language and one goal:

Exciting music and the courage to break stylistic boundaries

Jazz guitarists Axel Fischbacher and Philipp van Endert put their long year experience as bandleaders and sidemen into this duo/quartet project and created a musical platform that features standard jazz compositions arranged and played in their unique way. Supported by one of Europe’s best rhythm sections they are able to present a bright variety of modern guitar playing. Over the last decade they evolved to a working guitar duo bonded through continuing inspiration and respectful exchange of ideas.

„We are still in the stage of experimenting – and we hope this never ends !“
