I just found an older video recording of a quintet gig at the vienna Jazzland in september 2005, filmed by "Patschi." I did not remember this concert so well, but now seeing it years later, I have to say, it was really a nice concert and I like the energy and the band communication of this performance a lot. For now, I uploaded 3 tunes of this evening to my YouTube account, if you are interested to see it. There are mainly tunes from our first quintet CD "Heart Disc." The 3 tracks are: Heart Disc, For Gary (dedicated to Gary Dial) and A.M. Blues (by Conrad Herwig.)
In the Nov/Dec. issue (#6/2007) of the german magazine sonic I also had a very nice (and quite long) interview, done by Carina Prange. If interested you can download this article as a PDF file here. By the way, Carina also runs her own, very nice jazz website called jazzdimensions.de. Maybe have a look and also read some other nice interviews and reviews there.
