IF(BLUE)THEN(BLUE) by Heinz Sauer receives German Record Critics’ Award and CHOC Award
The album IF(BLUE)THEN(BLUE) by Heinz Sauer with Michael Wollny and Joachim Kühn continues to earn great international acclaim. Together with euphoric press reactions, the album now received the prestigious German Record Critics’ Award in the category “modern jazz” and the CHOC Award by the French Jazz Magazine / Jazzman.
The musical tribute to Miles Davis’ classic album “A Kind Of Blue” is a gathering of three generations of German jazz. Heinz Sauer, playing in a duo with either Michael Wollny or Joachim Kühn, again proves his status as one of Europe’s most important jazz musicians
Heinz Sauer is a giant of an improviser who deserves to be as well-known across Europe as Jan Garbarek. This is a grainly beautiful episode in his relationship with the young pianist Michael Wollny. Every stage of this pair’s journey is woth owning.

One of the great saxophone voices.
- The Independent (GB)
Sauer is a delight throughout, adjusting with lightening reflexes to every nuance in the music, from lyrical reflection to outré shrieks. With the aid of two amazing pianists, he has created another minor classic.
