Latest CD: A NIGHT OF BLUES AND BALLADS

This formation met in Murnau at the Staffelsee (lake in upper Bavaria, near Garmisch-Partenkirchen) for the first time. Being inspired by the atmosphere of this place, just like those artists around Wasily Kandinsky in the twenties, they decided to name their quartet after this idyllic lake 'Staffelsee'.
The style they are interpreting is called 'acoustic jazz', featuring compositions by Johannes Enders and Larry Porter. As a result of teaming with Larry Porter there is a new expression to Johann Enders's saxophone play; an expression which seems to be lyrical and soothing. Particularly the almost romantical compositions by US pianist Larry Porter are an invitation to dreamily enjoy the music of the Staffelsee Quartet
