What with its idiosyncratic music, the anarchistic humour, its intelligent arrangements and original sounds, DER ROTE BEREICH passes for one of the most exciting bands of modern German jazz. The press celebrated DER ROTE BEREICH as »the most important representative of German avant-garde jazz«. The »Jazzpodium« states: »In Germany you can barely find music that is comparably complex, surprisingly simple, refreshing in its selfmockery and interesting in every second.«
DER ROTE BEREICH is back now, after a creative pause. The music of DER ROTE BEREICH is very up to date, it is full of instancy and realism. Yet they know the true promise and fun of musical seriousness that makes their music an intellectual as well as sensual jazz adventure.
