Julian & Roman Wasserfuhr
Even as a teenager, Julian Wasserfuhr was considered Germany's greatest trumpet prodigy since Till Brönner. Together with his brother Roman on the piano, they form an inseparable duo. Their (soul) kinship benefits their collaborative playing. The brothers' familiarity lends the music a relaxed and effortless character. Whether with the trumpet or flugelhorn, Julian is not a representative of the faster-higher-further faction. With his warm tone, he creates atmospheric soundscapes. His brother Roman, with his accented and radiant piano playing, is equally involved in the band's fresh yet mature and airy sound.   After their highly acclaimed debut album "Remember Chet," which they recorded as teenagers, they made their mark in the German jazz scene. Soon, they were playing with greats like Nils Landgren, Lars Danielsson, or Wolfgang Haffner while simultaneously finding their own distinctive melodic and atmospheric "Wasserfuhr Sound": "I admire the courage to be simple that the two possess. That takes bravery. What's admirable is the opposite of show-off jazz," as actor Matthias Brandt succinctly puts it.
