This special line-up, which has two winds in the frontline, but no guitar - which is indispensable in the classical organ band - creates an exceptionally powerful and colorful sound, which is rarely heard in this country. It is therefore a special heart project of the bandleader Peter Protschka - it was created in the environment of the legendary Cologne "Salon de Jazz" at the Hammond organ sessions there.

Stylistic for this band format was the legendary recording "Unity" with bandleader Larry Young on organ, Joe Henderson on saxophone, a brilliant 20-year-old Woody Shaw on trumpet and the great Elvin Jones on drums." Organic Universe" brings together some of the best European jazz musicians of their generation; the band plays contemporary original compositions and mixes them with freshly arranged standards. A must for every friend of the energetic modern mainstream. The band's first CD will be released on Challenge International in September Protected content .
