PRESSE:

Fachmagazin Jazzpodium (Alexander Schmitz): “Andreas Brunn is a committed guitarist and composer. “Perpetuum five” comes as an electrified Postbop, angry, furious, jazzier. Take “East Side Gallery Story” as the story of a musician who could be right in the world, but who retranscribed in music, the burden of an uncomfortable story. ”

Kieler Nachrichten: “Andreas Brunn keeps recurring memories of John McLaughlin, his playing and his compositional talents are subtle and intelligent, a jazz fugue like “Wizards’ Cube ” does not write itself.
