Tobias Christl, is a rarity, a singer the likes of which there never was before in German jazz. "Wildern" is a foray through the dense underbrush of four decades of pop music, through songs from greats like Leonard Cohen, The Smiths, Paul Simon and Tom Waits. With an audible joy in deconstructing, tearing down and rebuilding, truly new music is created in this setting; music rich in rough edges, contrasts, breaks and unexpected turns. All the while, the soul of the songs is preserved.
