"The final meeting of the New Old Luten Quintet started with a warm-up as a trio interaction again. Contrary to Short Night formed without audience this short trio piece was part of the public first concert set of that evening. "-Euphorium Records



"The trio of Schwerdt, Petrowsky and Lillinger refers back to the beginning of the original idea, a bass-less trio in the tradition of Cecil Taylor's early Unit with Jimmy Lyons and Sunny Murray. Like the great role model, the trio dives pell-mell into music without metric boundaries, opening a lucky bag of possibilities. Schwerdt is a keyboard dervish, a magician of improvisation. Compared to White Power Blues his playing has become much more sophisticated and refined, more lyrical and percussive at the same time. He makes extensive use of clusters and parallel runs, that's why the music is very dynamic. Petrowsky's alto blares against the thunder of Schwerdt's piano, he indicates the direction of where the improvisation goes. Around the 14-minute mark of "Letzter Radau!", the only track on the album, Petrowsky throws in blues and bebop riffs just to come up even fiercer and more uncompromising. The whole improvisation is pushed by Lillinger's drumming, Paul Lovens might be an influence here, especially the toms propel the music relentlessly. The album is another example of his enormous versatility, he's just the most interesting drummer these days. The last four minutes surprise with a complete break - Petrowsky pulls out his flutes, the track becomes more world-music-like, Lillinger's bells and Schwerdt's prepared piano open the door to a different universe."-Martin Schray, The Free Jazz Collective

Artist Biographies

"Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky (born December 10, 1933 in Güstrow, often called Luten Petrowsky) is a German jazz musician. In addition to his work as a saxophonist, clarinetist and flute, he is also active as a composer and author.

The autodidact Petrovsky is considered one of the founding fathers of jazz in the GDR. Already since the mid-1950s he played in various formations; later he became a founding member of important for East German jazz Manfred Ludwig Sextett and played with, among others, Joachim Kühn, Dorothy Ellison and Ruth Hohmann. In 1971 he founded the jazz rock band SOK with Ulrich Gumpert and in 1973 was one of the founders of the free jazz formation Synopsis. Since 1972 he has worked together with bassist Klaus Koch in various formations.

Luten Petrowsky played in the various Gumpert Workshop Bands and from 1984 on the Synopsis successor, the Zentralquartett. He also interpreted compositions by Hans Rempel, Paul-Heinz Dittrich, Georg Katzer and Friedrich Schenker, with whom he also improvised. With Harry Miller, Heinz Becker, Joe Sachse and Tony Oxley he appeared in 1981 as part of the Jazzwerkstatt Peitz (CD: An Afternoon in Peitz). He became particularly popular since 1983 through his joint concerts with the singer Uschi Brüning.

Petrovsky played regularly with the George Gruntz Concert Jazz Band in Europe and the United States. He was a member of the European Jazz Ensemble, Günter Lenz Springtime and the Tony Oxley Celebration Orchestra. He has also been active in the Globe Unity Orchestra for many years. Since 2006 he plays with Christian Lillinger and Oliver Schwerdt aka Elan Pauer in the New Old Luten Trio. On the occasion of his 80th birthday, the JazzFest Berlin Petrovsky honored with a Jubilee evening with three of his important groups, the Central Quartet, the existing since 1992 group reputation of home (with Thomas Borgmann, Christoph Winckel and Willi Keller) and the ensemble Ornette et cetera (with Brüning, Jeanfrançois Prins, Michael Griener)

Petrowsky received the 1982 Art Prize of the GDR and was the winner of the National Prize of the GDR. In 1997 he was awarded the German Jazz Prize. Petrovsky is one of the most important German musicians of modern jazz. He was involved between 1963 and 2008 in 116 recordings of albums and other phonograms.

Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky is married to the singer Uschi Brüning."

"Elan Pauer, real name Oliver Schwerdt (born 13 November 1979 in Eisenach) is a German musicologist and musician ( piano, percussion) in the field of new improvisational music.

Schwerd visited the school in Eisenach until he graduated from high school and received classical piano lessons at the local music school there. He performed his military service as a piano accompanist in the Bundeswehr's training music corps. His studies of music and cultural studies as well as the history of art at the University of Leipzig, which he received in 1999, culminated in a master's thesis on Georg Simmel and Dadaism, submitted to Klaus Christian Köhnke. In 2012, he promoted Sebastian Klotz at the Institute for Musicology of the University of Leipzig, for which he was also active as an instructor. At the center of his dissertation are the musical strategies of central actors in the scene of free improvised music following the success of free jazz and their spatial theories. He taught at the Museum für Musikinstrumente of the University of Leipzig and at the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation.

Out of his work in musicology, Schwerdt identified the challenge faced by the current museum practice as opposed to the "new combination of the drumming combination" , as it became "in European improvisational music" of the 20th century. He is committed to safeguarding the "first-generation of European free jazz and contemporary improvised music", which is "an endangered, historically so delicate, aesthetically highly fascinating and epistemologically valuable complex of objects". [8th]

As author of a music-critical article Schwerdt wrote among other things for the Neue Musikzeitung, jazzthetik and the jazz newspaper. He also compiled accompanying texts from Günter Sommer / Wadada Leo Smith as well as Alexander von Schlippenbach / Evan Parker / Paul Lovens and Urs Leimgruber. In 2003, he founded Euphorium Productions.

Since 1999, Schwerdt has been the artistic director of the EUPHORIUM_freakestra, a project group between contemporary improvisation, jazz, new music and theater, with Günter Sommer, Friedrich Schenker, Rudi Mahall, Paul Rutherford, Ernst Ludwig Petrovsky, Frank Möbus, Wadada Leo Smith, Axel Dörner, Barre Phillips, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Evan Parker, Paul Lovens, Sven-Åke Johansson, Ulrich Gumpert, Manfred Hering, Dietmar Diesner, Roger Turner and others. At the 33rd Leipziger Jazztagen 2009 he performed with the Transatlantic Freedom Suite Tentets project at the Opernhaus Leipzig. From the project set, the quartet ember developed with Urs Leimgruber, Alexander Schubert and Christian Lillinger. He also works with Lillinger and Petrowsky in the New Old Lute Trio. With Schubert and Friedrich Kettlitz, Schwerdt operates the electrified noise ensemble trnn.

For his performance as a pianist and ensemble conductor in 2006, Schwerdt received the Leipziger Jazz-Nachwuchsstipendium from the Marion Ermer Foundation. Critics Ken Waxman (Jazzword) and Rigobert Dittmann (Bad Alchemy) listen to remixes by Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Cecil Taylor and Alexander von Schlippenbach in Schwerdt's pianist."

"After taking up the bass, around 1987, John Edwards co-formed The Pointy Birds who went on to win awards for their music for The Cholmondeleys and Featherstonehaughs dance troupes. The group appeared at festivals in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Moers, Leverkusen, Copenhagen. Around 1990, Edwards played his first gigs with London improvisers such as Roger Turner, Lol Coxhill, Maggie Nicols, Phil Minton.

Between 1990 and 1995 Edwards was a member of three touring groups simultaneously: B-Shops For The Poor, The Honkies and GOD. During this period he also became an increasingly regular player on the London improvised music scene and performed his first solo gigs; he composed and performed music theatre with the bass and cello duo The Great Explorers, street-busked a lot and appeared at many more festivals in Germany, Estonia, France, Italy, Czech, etc.

Since 1995 John Edwards has become a "mainstay" of the London scene, playing with just about everybody, an activity that has seen him clocking up between 150 and 200 gigs a year. He has become regular player with Evan Parker, in many groupings, and with Tony Bevan, Veryan Weston, and Elton Dean, often in collaboration with Mark Sanders on percussion. He has become a more frequent player on the European (and festival) scene, appearing at Taktlos, Ulrichsburg, Nickelsdorf, Budapest, New Zealand and in the USA. He continues to work on solo performances."
