"Philipp Gropper (tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, composition) was born in Berlin in 1978. He began to play the saxophone at the age of seven.

Gropper studied the jazz saxophone at the UDK Berlin and played with the concert section of Bujazzo for two years under Peter Herbolzheimer. He has since been busy as a freelance sax player and composer, dedicating most of his time to developing his musical ideas.In 2003, he started the trio HYPERACTIVE KID with Ronny Graupe and Christian Lillinger, and in 2012 founded the quartet PHILM with Elias Stemeseder, Robert Landfermann and Oliver Steidle. In 2013 - exploring yet again a completely different field of music - he initiated TAU, an electric acoustic group with Philipp Zoubek, Petter Eldh and Moritz Baumgärtner.

Concerts with these bands and others have brought Gropper to over 40 countries across Europe, Africa, Asia, North and South America. He has had the honour of sharing a stage with wonderful musicians such as Rudi Mahal, Ralph Towner, Jim Black, Bobby McFerrin, Kresten Osgood, Tobias Delius, Clayton Thomas, Nasheet Waits, Pablo Held, Olaf Rupp, Ceylan Ertem, Matthias Schriefl, John Schröder, Maria Joao, Paulo Cardoso, James Knapp, Kaja Drachsler, Kit Downes, Dan Nicholls, Günter Baby Sommer, Håvard Wiik, Axel Dörner, Mat Maneri, Matthew Herbert, DJ IllVibe, Ibadet Ramadani, Peter Evans and many others.

As a sideman he plays with Wanja Slavin's Lotus Eaters, Pablo Held's Glow, Oli Steidle & The Killing Popes, Home Stretch, European Movement Jazz Orchester and some more.Gropper has recorded more than 50 albums and has been awarded several prizes. He has been a member of the Jazzkollektiv Berlin since 2009."

"Kaja Draksler (1987) is a Slovenian pianist and composer. After her studies in the Netherlands (BA in jazz piano and MA in classical composition), she decided to stay in Amsterdam, where she is an active member of the improvisors scene, performing extensively all over the Europe. Besides her frequent solo concerts, she has been working regularly with Čudars-Draksler Duo, Feecho, BadBooshBand, and Draksler-Santos Silva duo. She is also one of the founding members of the interdisciplinary group I/O. She recently formed her Octet. As a composer she has been commissioned by various international groups, ranging from vocal and chamber ensembles to big bands and orchestras. Kaja is interested in finding ways to merge the composition and (free) improvisation by working with different structures and musical logics. She is drawn to the idea of erasing the stylistic and historical musical borders, and discovering personal expression and language through composition and improvisation."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Prepare yourself for a big surprise. The European Movement Jazz Orchestra may be formed by young musicians still in the beginning of their very promising careers, but what they offer here is a fantastically performed, fresh, enthusiastic and very pertinent vision of the big band model.

With German, Slovenian and Portuguese participants, this project founded in the context of the European Union was started in 2007 and uses only original compositions wri5ten by the people involved. Among the top soloists are trumpeters Matthias Schriefl and Susana Santos Silva, alto saxophonist Uwe Steinmetz, tenor saxophonists Phillipp Gropper and Jure Pukl, trombonists Lars Arens and Joern Marcussen-Wulff, pianist Kaja Draksler and drummer Tobias Backhaus. The pieces are signed by Jurgen Friedrich, Jure Pukl, Paulo Perfeito, Robert Jukic, Kaja Draksler and Matthias Schriefl.

The conductor in this live recording (in the Portuguese festival Jazz ao Centro) is Izidor Leitinger and the music heard corresponds entirely to the EMJO program of intentions: it's what is being called "European jazz". Jazz with an European spirit, diverse but globally identified, either because of its "classical" feeling, or because it incorporates popular or folk motifs, like the "blasmusik" of the German fanfares.
