Mareike Wiening: Future Memories

Read "Future Memories" reviewed by Mark Corroto


It is interesting that in today's creative music world, a jazz drummer cannot just be a jazz drummer. There are so many great drummers that they have to also be composers, band leaders, and sometimes van drivers. A short list includes Tyshawn Sorey, Allison Miller, Ches Smith, and Terri Lyne Carrington. Add to that list Mareike Wiening, the German-born artist with (now) deep New York roots.

Wiening's ensemble is very tight, but this does not mean rigid. Instead, it ...

This all-original program is a winning display of her composing, drumming and band-leading, with the help of a very sharp band. Returning from her earlier EP Crosswalk (Self Produced, 2015) are double bassist Johannes Felscher (a fellow Nuremberg native), Canadian guitarist Alex Goodman—now a New York resident, last heard from as a leader on Second Act (Lyte Records, 2017)—and tenor saxophonist Rich Perry.
