Gebhard Ullmann Basement Research
German jazz owes him a great deal but, as is so often the case, the prophet has no honour in his own country. In the US, the untiring free-thinker Gebhard Ullman enjoys a higher reputation than in his home country; not surprising, therefore, that he most continuously works with this New York and not a Berlin based ensemble.
On occasion of his 50th birthday, Ullmann will present the most recent version of his quintet comprising five outstanding musicians.
Julian Argüelles baritone saxophone, soprano saxophone
Steve Swell trombone
Gebhard Ullmann bass clarinet, tenor saxophone
John Hebert bass
Gerald Cleaver drums
