"Berlin pianist Ulrich Gumpert, a member of the band Zentralquartett, has put together a band with younger musicians from the Berlin scene and the saxophonist Ben Abarbanel-Wolff, who grew up in Washington and now lives in Berlin. The band combines the bandleader's incisive themes with high-energy, spontaneous playing.
In the liner notes to the group's new CD, Quartette, Christian Broecking writes: "Abarbanel-Wolff is the youngest musician in the new Gumpert Quartet. The 32-year old saxophone player grew up in Washington, studied with Milford Graves and Reggie Workman and has been living in Berlin since 2001, where he also plays in the band of the Afro-American bassist Sirone. Bass player Jan Roder was born in Lübeck in 1968 and moved to Berlin in 1995. With the quartet Die Enttäuschung and pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach he recorded the complete works of Monk under the title Monk's Casino for the Intakt label. Drummer Michael Griener, born in Nuremberg in 1968, has been living in the German capital since 1994, in March 2006 he was awarded 'most creative soloist' at the Neuen Deutschen Jazzpreis in Mannheim, and performed on the New York Vision Festival in summer 2006. Griener has been playing with pianist Gumpert for almost ten years. first in a trio, later Abarbanel-Wolff joined. Shortly afterwards the new Gumpert-Quartet performed on the JazzFest Berlin and the Sziget Festival in Budapest."
When Gumpert received the German Jazz Prize (Albert Mangelsdorff-Prize), the journalist Ulrich Stock wrote in DIE ZEIT: 'Without getting particularly loud, wild, or fast, Ulrich Gumpert has found a sound entirely his own: rich, lyrical, warm, to the point.' "-Intakt
