Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"When Luten arrived at the sight of his last concert he almost touched the dawn of Brotzmann's arrival in taking part in the legend of the Great Lilli/Schwerdt Vitalization Circus. The guy from Wuppertal always had been younger than the guy from Fliegenpilzstrasse 363. But instead of the aura of a captain Luten carried on to picture himself as a boy till the end. Now both sloshed into heaven and hell.

The vast pictures we drew contained always both spheres of imaginations and beyond. In 2016 Sakata was still about to join us singing, still the Dikeman dude was coming to show up a fresh fertility to contribute to the long running firework. And in the end of the big story that we are going to tell in somewhat around eleven albums the female heroines like Genta Eberhard Emmeluth will keep on rolling that inflamation which once, in 2006, the New Old Luten Trio spilled out at their kind of Trident Juncture."-Oliver Schwerdt



"Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky (10 December 1933 - 10 July 2023), often called Luten Petrowsky, was a German jazz saxophonist, clarinetist, flautist, composer and author. He is considered the father of free jazz in East Germany (GDR). He was one of few jazz musicians permitted to play in the West already in the 1960s. Petrowsky played in the 1973 quartet recording Just for fun, the first of jazz musicians from both East and West. He took part in more than a hundred recordings between 1963 and 2016, with groups such as Synopsis and Zentralquartett, and with his singer wife, Uschi Brüning. [...] From 2006 to 2016 Petrowsky performed with percussionist Christian Lillinger and Oliver Schwerdt as the New Old Luten Trio."-Wikipedia


Artist Biographies

"Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky (born December 10, 1933 in Güstrow, often called Luten Petrowsky) is a German jazz musician. In addition to his work as a saxophonist, clarinetist and flute, he is also active as a composer and author.

The autodidact Petrovsky is considered one of the founding fathers of jazz in the GDR. Already since the mid-1950s he played in various formations; later he became a founding member of important for East German jazz Manfred Ludwig Sextett and played with, among others, Joachim Kühn, Dorothy Ellison and Ruth Hohmann. In 1971 he founded the jazz rock band SOK with Ulrich Gumpert and in 1973 was one of the founders of the free jazz formation Synopsis. Since 1972 he has worked together with bassist Klaus Koch in various formations.

Luten Petrowsky played in the various Gumpert Workshop Bands and from 1984 on the Synopsis successor, the Zentralquartett. He also interpreted compositions by Hans Rempel, Paul-Heinz Dittrich, Georg Katzer and Friedrich Schenker, with whom he also improvised. With Harry Miller, Heinz Becker, Joe Sachse and Tony Oxley he appeared in 1981 as part of the Jazzwerkstatt Peitz (CD: An Afternoon in Peitz). He became particularly popular since 1983 through his joint concerts with the singer Uschi Brüning.

Petrovsky played regularly with the George Gruntz Concert Jazz Band in Europe and the United States. He was a member of the European Jazz Ensemble, Günter Lenz Springtime and the Tony Oxley Celebration Orchestra. He has also been active in the Globe Unity Orchestra for many years. Since 2006 he plays with Christian Lillinger and Oliver Schwerdt aka Elan Pauer in the New Old Luten Trio. On the occasion of his 80th birthday, the JazzFest Berlin Petrovsky honored with a Jubilee evening with three of his important groups, the Central Quartet, the existing since 1992 group reputation of home (with Thomas Borgmann, Christoph Winckel and Willi Keller) and the ensemble Ornette et cetera (with Brüning, Jeanfrançois Prins, Michael Griener)

Petrowsky received the 1982 Art Prize of the GDR and was the winner of the National Prize of the GDR. In 1997 he was awarded the German Jazz Prize. Petrovsky is one of the most important German musicians of modern jazz. He was involved between 1963 and 2008 in 116 recordings of albums and other phonograms.

"Elan Pauer, real name Oliver Schwerdt (born 13 November 1979 in Eisenach) is a German musicologist and musician ( piano, percussion) in the field of new improvisational music.

Schwerd visited the school in Eisenach until he graduated from high school and received classical piano lessons at the local music school there. He performed his military service as a piano accompanist in the Bundeswehr's training music corps. His studies of music and cultural studies as well as the history of art at the University of Leipzig, which he received in 1999, culminated in a master's thesis on Georg Simmel and Dadaism, submitted to Klaus Christian Köhnke. In 2012, he promoted Sebastian Klotz at the Institute for Musicology of the University of Leipzig, for which he was also active as an instructor. At the center of his dissertation are the musical strategies of central actors in the scene of free improvised music following the success of free jazz and their spatial theories. He taught at the Museum für Musikinstrumente of the University of Leipzig and at the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation.

Out of his work in musicology, Schwerdt identified the challenge faced by the current museum practice as opposed to the "new combination of the drumming combination" , as it became "in European improvisational music" of the 20th century. He is committed to safeguarding the "first-generation of European free jazz and contemporary improvised music", which is "an endangered, historically so delicate, aesthetically highly fascinating and epistemologically valuable complex of objects". [8th]

As author of a music-critical article Schwerdt wrote among other things for the Neue Musikzeitung, jazzthetik and the jazz newspaper. He also compiled accompanying texts from Günter Sommer / Wadada Leo Smith as well as Alexander von Schlippenbach / Evan Parker / Paul Lovens and Urs Leimgruber. In 2003, he founded Euphorium Productions.

Since 1999, Schwerdt has been the artistic director of the EUPHORIUM_freakestra, a project group between contemporary improvisation, jazz, new music and theater, with Günter Sommer, Friedrich Schenker, Rudi Mahall, Paul Rutherford, Ernst Ludwig Petrovsky, Frank Möbus, Wadada Leo Smith, Axel Dörner, Barre Phillips, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Evan Parker, Paul Lovens, Sven-Åke Johansson, Ulrich Gumpert, Manfred Hering, Dietmar Diesner, Roger Turner and others. At the 33rd Leipziger Jazztagen 2009 he performed with the Transatlantic Freedom Suite Tentets project at the Opernhaus Leipzig. From the project set, the quartet ember developed with Urs Leimgruber, Alexander Schubert and Christian Lillinger. He also works with Lillinger and Petrowsky in the New Old Lute Trio. With Schubert and Friedrich Kettlitz, Schwerdt operates the electrified noise ensemble trnn.

For his performance as a pianist and ensemble conductor in 2006, Schwerdt received the Leipziger Jazz-Nachwuchsstipendium from the Marion Ermer Foundation. Critics Ken Waxman (Jazzword) and Rigobert Dittmann (Bad Alchemy) listen to remixes by Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Cecil Taylor and Alexander von Schlippenbach in Schwerdt's pianist."
