about

Stefan Karl Schmid – tenor sax
Leonhard Huhn -alto sax
Stefan Schönegg- bass
Fabian Arends- drums

The wondrous congruence of the saxophone sounds by Stefan Karl Schmid and Leonhard Huhn is crux of the matter on SCHMID’s HUHN. Together with bassist Stefan Schönegg and Fabian Arends on drums this phenomenon is used to reveal tonal details, attrition and diverse colors. The absence of an harmonic instrument thereby leaves the desired space to improvise, communicate and interact with each other whereat the treatment of the individually composed material is conducted by the particular moment.
Energetic and fierce passages are followed by earthy and lyrical parts revealing the musical influences of the protagonists. Winding ‘Tristano-like’ themes as well as segments inspired by Maurice Ravel or Luciano Berio are handled with care and aim to fill the space between tradition and avantgarde.

STEFAN KARL SCHMID & LEONHARD HUHN

After many years of conjoint work Cologne based saxophonists Stefan Karl Schmid and Leonhard Huhn created a new Quartet named Schmid’s Huhn as their means of expression. Schmid and Huhn understand each other instinctively. Their slight and powerful tone merges into one sound at which it folds contrapuntally in the very next moment opening up unexpected sound scopes. With bassist Stefan Schönegg and Fabian Arends on drums an earthy and lyrical sound arises which sovereignly fills the space between tradition and avant- garde.
Together Schmid and Huhn have been very successful over the last couple of years. In 2011 they won the composition award at the ‘Tremplin Jazz D’Avignon Festival in France, the ‘Sparda-Jazz-Award’ 2012 and in 2013 they have been nominated for the ‘New German Jazztrophy’.
