Felix Schlarmann Group Short Info

Felix Schlarmann - COUNTERLIFE

The german JAZZTHING descripes the first album as “ghostly drifting, pastoral and hymnal", jazzmagazine JAZZPODIUM praises Schlarmann's music as 'compositions of excellent quality'!
The first record "Counterlife" was released in 2014 on Challenge Records International (NL) and found great european response.

On their release tour the group visited Dutch venues like the Bimhuis, Paradox, Lantaren Venster and many other.

The Felix Schlarmann Group is led by drummer Felix Schlarmann (1982).
"This versatile drummer’s music consists of fragile melodies and energetic explosions; an emotional sound filled with contradiction." Somewhere placed in the style of modern melodic jazz, the listener will have to find his own way in order to find a name for it.
Schlarmann's writing and sound idea is influenced by different composers of the younger European and American scene; not only from jazz, since sound, energy and emotions are the most important factors for him.

As the driving force behind Jazzfest Amsterdam, as well as his monthly sessions in Studio/K, German-born drummer Felix Schlarmann is a key figure in the Amsterdam jazz scene, who tours all over the world with the powerjazz formation BRUUT! next to playing with his own group and other projects.
