Hip cat heartbreak, so tough.

About the Album

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
