Wolfgang Schlüter & Boris Netsvetaev - Breathing As One (2016) SKIP RECORDS

German Jazz has brought forth only a few international stars. Vibraphonist Wolfgang Schlüter even managed to make it into the Downbeat Critics Poll. A rock of ages in the history of German Jazz, a gem “in which nearly all of the vibraphonists glimmer and shine” (M.Naura) Among his major influences you can hear Lionel Hampton and Milt Jackson but to dismiss him as a King of Swing would only throw light on a partial aspect of his artistic repertoire, because there’s no doubt that he is among the key talents on his instrument in Europe and that he contributed substantially to how playing the vibes has developed over the years. On November 12th 2013 the vital instrumentalist celebrates his 80th birthday.
