Loft Cologne - Guy Mintus & Uta Habbig Duo

Piano & Composition - Guy Mintus, Voice & Composition - Uta Habbig

Die erste musikalische Begegnung der beiden jungen Musiker gab es dort, wo das Herz eines jeden Jazzmusikers höher schlägt - New York City.
Klavier und Gesang bildet nun eher ein Duo gewöhnlicher Art. Wenn man aber den zwei Ausnahmetalenten aus Israel und Deutschland zuhört, dann ist da ganz und gar nichts mehr Gewöhnliches dran. Guy und Uta erzählen sich gegenseitig Geschichten und der Zuhörer kann gar nicht anders als gespannt zuhören. Jazz bedeutet für beide Musiker ein musikalisches Gespräch, dabei können ruhig auch schon mal die Fetzen fliegen. Beide Musiker lieben das Experiment und deswegen bleibt der musikalische Dialog vor allem Eines - überraschend anders. Obwohl sie kulturell aus völlig anderen Richtungen kommen, haben sie musikalisch doch erstaunlich Vieles gemeinsam. Melodien deutscher Volkslieder und alte jüdischen Weisen mischen sich mit modernem Jazz, eigene Kompositionen mit legendären Standards, unbändige Spielfreude mit greifbarer Melancholie. Unprätentiös aber dennoch leidenschaftlich verbinden Guy und Uta die Musik ihrer beiden Kulturen und schaffen im Rahmen des Jazz eine Verbindung außergewöhnlicher Art.

More on Uta:
https://www.facebook.com/Turtur.Band
Uta is an inspiring artist with an unmistakably intuitive gift. Her poetic writing and her turns of phrase are so deft and graceful that one senses the presence of a very old soul. There is searching honesty and indefatigable need to express it.“ This says composer and pianist Kirk Nurock about Uta Habbig who is not only a unique vocalist and composer, but also an extraordinary lyricist.
Exploring the wide musical landscape of jazz, she transforms any song into her very own musical work of art. With her endearing and colorful sound the multi-talented singer has intrigued audiences all over Europe which ultimately brought her to the melting pot of Jazz - New York City. Combining elements of jazz, classical and folk music Uta has surrounded herself with outstanding musicians from her generation to play all over NYC.

Born and raised in Cologne, Germany, Uta started playing piano and violin at a the age of five. Brought up listening to and performing mainly the music of Bach, Mozart and Beethoven Uta at first earned her master degree in music education at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Leipzig, Germany, before she finally persued her wish to study jazz at the Conservatorium Maastricht, Netherlands with german jazz singer Sabine Kühlich. She was awarded a scholarship for one year by the prestigious New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York where she completed her education and met the musicians with whom she formed her band. She studied with world famous musicians such as Kirk Nurock, Reggie Workman, Billy Harper, Becca Stevens, Richard Harper, and many more.
„Music is really the only thing that has always and will always make sense to me, despite all that craziness life has to offer“, Uta says when one asks her about her passion for music. Her Debut Album "Windwards" will be released in November 2015, a collection of ten original songs and arrangements.
