Artist Biographies:

"Uwe Oberg *1962 Offenbach / Germany, lives in Wiesbaden nearby Frankfurt.

He started playing piano at the age of seven, moved in the early 80s from popular music to Jazz and joined in 1986 the KOOPERATIVE NEW JAZZ / ARTist Wiesbaden, an association of improvising musicians. Improvisation is the keyword for his work. Impressed by Free Jazz and New Music, he developed exceptional piano techniques; influences are Thelonious Monk, Paul Bley, Cecil Taylor, Don Pullen, Ran Blake, Andrew Hill, the music of Anthony Braxton, the early piano compositions of John Cage as well as european free improvisation. He is also a composer and a highly individual interpret of Jazz-compositions.

He works in various musical contexts: as a soloist he bends the bow from inside piano to the music of Monk. With LACY POOL he dives into the music of Steve Lacy, the duo with SILKE EBERHARD plays originals as well as music by Carla Bley, Annette Peacock a.o. ROPE is an improvising quartet with european line-up. Whatever Oberg plays, he transforms each material in his very personal, twinkling sound without musical borders.

Beside fixed projects he enjoys the improvised encounter with musicians from different styles and cultures. He often played in combination with other artforms, theatre / dance / lyrics, currently mainly with silent films, as a soloist and with ensembles. Cooperation with: ALFRED HARTH, PETER KOWALD, XU FENGXIA, MATTHIAS SCHUBERT, PHILIPPE MICOL, JÜRGEN WUCHNER, ULI PHILLIPP, TONY OXLEY, SVEN-AKE JOHANSSON, RUDI MAHALL, HR JAZZENSEMBLE, HEINZ SAUER, URS LEIMGRUBER, SAADET TÜRKÖZ, SUBROTO ROY CHAUDHURI, PAUL LOVENS, AXEL DÖRNER, FRANK GRATKOWSKI, EVAN PARKER a.m.o.

In December 2007 Oberg got the award HESSISCHER JAZZPREIS. Laudatio by Dr. Wolfram Knauer (in German Language)"

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Uwe Oberg plays original compositions, free improvisation, inside-piano and music of different origin. Otmar Klammer ORF/Austria wrote: "Oberg is one of the few, who really joins american with european improvised music;(...) one of the most intriguing pianists at the fascinating intersection of New Music and Free Jazz, impressing with an economic style." Oberg is leading various bands and plays with musicians like Heinz Sauer, Mark Sanders, Paul Rogers, Silke Eberhard, Gerry Hemingway a.m.o. He received the Jazz Award of Hessen 2007. International concerts, numerous CD's.

Joe Fonda plays a major bass-role in the New York downtown-scene and has projects in Europe as well. Anthony Braxton says: "There is more to creative mastership than the surface of satisfaction and political certainty. The musicof Joe Fonda is part of a living tradition of belief and dedication. Future historians will be surprised at the breadth of Mr. Fonda's offerings. This is a real virtuoso and composer of the highest order."

Fonda plays a.o. with the Fonda/Stevens Group, with Satako Fuji, Conference Call, The Fab Trio and joined the reknowned A. Braxton Ensemble from 1984 through 1999. He is touring worldwide and has recorded a great number of CD's.

Lucía Martínez comes from Spain and lives in Berlin. She belongs to the younger european generation and is into classical music, world music and contemporary jazz. With her diverse percussion she blends Avantgarde music with mediterranean sounds. Martínez plays with Agustí Fernández in duo, with her own quartet, Lucía Martínez & the Fearless, MBM Trio. International concerts, and a lot of CD's."-Uwe Oberg website
