Rhapsody For Trumpet – New Release

Ein Hörgenuss der sowohl wohltemperierte als auch nachdenkliche Klänge unserer heutigen Zeit und diversen Welt auf hohem Niveau zum Ausdruck bringt.

RHAPSODY FOR TRUMPET verbindet Elemente der zeitgenössischen Musik, des Cool Jazz und des Film Noir Genres in dreizehn eleganten, zeitlosen Kompositionen. Erstmals steht die Trompete in diesem Studioalbum des Komponisten und Multiinstrumentalisten Gerhard Daum im Mittelpunkt. Der klare und ausdruckstarke Trompetenton, der die Stücke des Albums prägt, weist Assoziationen zu Größen des Jazz wie Chet Baker und Miles Davis auf.

Dick Metcalf, Music Editor says:

Gerhard’s offerings are always diverse, but this is the first time I’ve heard him doing tasty and tantalizing trumpet work […]. “Sleeping City” captures the very essence of after-midnight streets and urban crawls through cavernous skyscrapers… I will go so far as to say that this is the best trumpet piece I’ve listened to (yet) in 2020.

Songs Without Words – Reviews of the Press

Staccatofy review by Steph Cosme:

Daum is a composer that focuses on creating clear melodies in a music setting that is full and entertaining. His guitar playing is solid throughout the album and he displays a wide range of techniques and playing styles. “Berlin Song” makes good use of the whammy bar for expressive purposes ala Jeff Beck.


Review by Rotcod Zzaj:

I give Gerhard a most highly recommended rating, with a (perfect) “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 5.00… that means that he also gets my “pick” for “most expressive guitar album”.


Review by Kathy Parsons:

Songs Without Words in an incredible album that showcases the many “voices” of the electric guitar. […] Songs Without Words is a winner from the first note to the last!


Music.guide:

Daum weaves his way through twelve tracks of imaginative music, flawlessly produced and expertly engineered, showcasing his mastery of the instrument he holds dear.

Preview: New CD release “Songs Without Words” April 26, 2019 

The new album Songs Without Words features contemporary instrumental music for the electric guitar. It is defined by an unconventional musical vision that combines jazz, classical, and electronic composing and performing styles.

I believe instrumental music brings together different cultures and connects with people. Here’s to music and compositions that decelerate our hectic and noisy world.

Stay tuned!
