Conference Call (Ullmann / Stevens / Fonda / Schuller): What About ... ? [2 CDs] (Not Two Records)
Label: Not Two Records    
Released in: Poland    

"Conference Call is a working band since 1998 featuring the exciting German woodwind virtuoso Gebhard Ullmann, the established piano/bass collaboration of Michael Jefry Stevens and Joe Fonda (The Fonda/Stevens Group) and the highly individual percussion stylings of master drummers George Schuller, Matt Wilson, Han Bennink or Gerry Hemmingway.

The quartet features original music from each member of the group and utilizes the distinctive improvisational and textural talents of each of the 4 actual members: Gebhard Ullmanns extensive woodwind palette (bass clarinet, bass flute, tenor and soprano sax), the textural and timbral virtuosity of George Schuller, the organic and highly creative piano/bass interplay between Joe Fonda and Michael Jefry Stevens. all these ingredients create a highly creative and unique variety of musical flavors.

The first studio cd after Final Answer was released in 2008 on the Portuguese Clean Feed label entitled Poetry In Motion - also marking the 10th anniversary of Conference Call and was listed among the best cds of the year 2008 in Allabout Jazz New York."-Gebhard Ullman Website
