Artist Biographies:

"Konrad "Conny" Bauer, born in Halle an der Saale in 1943, began making music as a teenager. After self-taught beginnings as a singer and guitarist in various bands, he studied trombone in Dresden. There he discovered jazz for himself. After completing his studies, he moved to Berlin and played among other things. in the "Modern Soul Band", later in the groups "FEZ", "Exis" and "Doppelmoppel". In 1974 Conny Bauer gave his first solo concert at the legendary Peitz Festival. Since then he has fascinated his audience with ever new sounds and surprising harmonies, which he creates with his characteristic polyphonic blowing techniques. The American music journalist John Corbett coined the term "conradisms" and described Bauer's music as "one of the most radical original voices in improvised music." Bauer toured Europe, the United States, South America and Japan. He played with internationally renowned improvisation musicians such as Gianluigi Trovesi (sax, cl), Peter Kowald (b) or Peter Brötzmann (sax) and is next to Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky (sax), Günter "Baby" Sommer (dr) and Uli Gumpert ( p) Founding member of the "Central Quartet"."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"When it was released in 1992, Toronto Töne was one of the first albums by trombonist Konrad Bauer to see the light of day outside Germany (West and/or East). This solo set was recorded live in Toronto in October 1991. Bauer's trombone is enhanced by electronic echo and loops. The CD itself makes a full circle, as the first track, "Japanisches Spielzeug (Hinton)" (Japanese Playthings [End]) is the end of the last track "Japanisches Spielzeug (Vorn)" (Beginning). Setting the CD player on repeat, the album comes back on itself. These are more than etudes for trombone and echo: Bauer is having fun, playing around, hinting at blues and jazz, but constantly pushing the envelope of his favorite instrument. In general the music remains soft-spoken, with lots of space to breathe and let the ripples of sound fade away before attacking another string of notes. One exception is "Flutz," which for the most part adopts a march mood. Here, the trombone is harmonically multiplied through electronics, plus echo and other effects, in order to saturate the sonic space. Although the most processed, this piece doesn't feel cold or artificial, and it ages very well, even if the technology evolved a lot since 1991 -- just listen to another experimental trombonist CD, J.A. Deane's Solo Dino, to hear the difference eight years after."-François Couture, All Music
