For their 5th album, German trumpeter Julian and pianist Roman Wasserfuhr are in Brooklyn. The rise of the Wasserfuhrs has been meteoric, and 'Landed in Brooklyn' documents another important stage of it. Julian Wasserfuhr explains the origins of the album: 'Siggi Loch called us up and asked if we were interested in making another album for the ACT label. Naturally we agreed - but we admitted that we hadn't really given it much thought.' So the idea emerged that the magic of the city of New York, as a force to propel and lift them, should became the concept behind the album. The established musicians they would then meet at the legendary System Two Recording Studios would act as their fountainheads of inspiration. First and foremost among those inspirers is saxophonist Donny McCaslin, the lynchpin of David Bowie's last revelatory masterpiece 'Blackstar'. Tim Lefebvre, also a member of Bowie's last band is equally at home in jazz and in rock contexts. Nate Wood is an in-demand first call drummer and close associate of Donny McCaslin. Is that enough jazz chops and credibility? Well, there's more, in the form of a GRAMMY winner, producer Al Pryor whose craft, knowledge and deep experience have brought listeners closer to the musicality and emotion of artists such as CÃ©cile McLorin Salvant, Raul MidÃ³n and Christian McBride. Very little had been agreed or set down in advance when Julian und Roman Wasserfuhr arrived at the studio to meet the top-drawer American players. They had brought the sheet music of some pieces with them, but the guiding principle was to see what would transpire and to let things happen.
