Hip cat heartbreak, so tough.
Saxophonist Gebhard Ullmann, pianist Hans Lüdemann, drummer Eric Schaefer and bassist Oliver Potratz – they are PULS: an acronym for the names of the band members. And on their new album "mikroPULS" they experiment with microtonality, which proves to be both an intellectual challenge and a bridge to the music of the African-American experience from which jazz grew and to which all four musicians of "mikroPULS" feel connected: the blues. "mikroPULS" lets us participate in an excursion by these four musicians into unknown territory. Ullmann, Lüdemann, Potratz, and Schaefer enable us to experience new sounds and types of listening without losing our way. Their music opens our ears and confronts us with our own preconceptions.
