Album Description

Ever since I have been a musician, there have been two hearts beating in my chest: on the one hand that of the saxophone player and on the other that of the composer and arranger. It is not always easy for me to unite both. With the Nonet, I have finally not only managed to merge all my different musical influences of the past years but also to write and play music in which I find myself reflected both as a saxophone player and as a composer and arranger. When in 2017 I started to plan this project and write the music, I didn’t know yet in which direction the music would go, not to mention what was lying ahead of me, which ups and downs I would need to go through and if I would ever be able to realize this project on the level I was aiming for. Looking back, it feels almost surreal to hold the CD in my hands and being able to say that I am very satisfied with the result. I wouldn’t have managed that all without the support of my girlfriend, my friends and my family. Thank you all so much! On top of that I wish to thank my incredible band. Each of them helped with their commitment, their musicality and their personality to bring this music alive. Furthermore I want to thank Sara Ozvaldic for the Artwork and the Design. Last but not least my thanks go to Werner Angerer for the outstanding sound and the great cooperation. Enjoy listening to the recordings. Tobias Hoffmann
