Some years ago, Peter took me to a concert of the Adrian Belew Power Trio and I immediately fell in love with the brilliant bass playing of Julie Slick. Several concerts later we decided to bring Julie to Germany someday, make a record with her and play some concerts. And here we are, SAM, the trio Julie Slick, Peter Alexius and Marc Mennigmann.
Julie will come to Germany in October for a several days recording session. After that we will play at least two concerts in German Jazz clubs.
But we decided not to only work and play as a trio, we wanted some of our friends to join us on this journey. We invited the drummer Sven Kosakowski and guitarist Zaki Kiokakis, which both will add their musicality and soul along the road. More musicians may be added over time.
This project is dedicated to the things we love, the music, the experiment, and the love to interact. So stay tuned, we will frequently post news about SAM on this page.
