(CHRISTIAN BURKERT)" BY EBENEZER SAMUEL NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Monday, October 3, 2016, 2:47 PM "Daniel Sennheiser knows exactly what he's up against. Along with his brother Andreas, Daniel Sennheiser runs the blossoming Sennheiser company, a blossoming audio business based in Germany. But he's watched and admired New York City for a long time, come to appreciate the business challenges of the Big Apple. And along the way, Sennheiser says, he's come to view New York City as a pivotal battleground for any business ready to go global. "New York has been the beginning of a lot of things," Sennheiser says. "This is a melting pot, that has brought up so many things, brought up Broadway. New York is very fast-living. And that's positive in a sense that they're quick to pick up new trends and things. "But that also means you need to make a certain amount of noise." And now, it's time for Sennheiser to make some noise. In late October, the company will take up residence in the Big Apple, opening the Sennheiser Soundscape Showroom in the Westfield World Trade Center. It's a venue that will be filled with Sennheiser's unique products, but the focus isn't on selling. Instead, Sennheiser is focused on introducing New Yorkers to its distinctive audio, part of a first step in establishing the company as a sound powerhouse in a nation that's spent the last few years in the midst of a great headphone awakening. "We believe it's the right time for us to make a big splash to share our version of the future of audio with New York," says Andreas. It's an intriguing vision from a company that's long delivered high-quality sound but has consistently lacked the profile of the bigger names in the industry. Beats by Dre and Bose own the majority of U.S. mindshare, and both companies are highly visible, utilized by both celebrities and major sports franchises. Sennheiser has never had such presence, and that's mostly by choice. Look closely during your next NBA on TNT broadcast, and you may notice Sennheiser headsets on the play-by-play guys. But the company has historically done little marketing, preferring to let its devices shine on their own merits. The Soundscape Showroom isn't the start of some massive ad campaign, either. But it is part of a company-wide initiative to be more visible in the United States, to draw more notice to an underrated line of products. Just a few years ago, the company set up a small pop-up store on the East Side. With the Soundscape Showroom, it's going bigger, aiming to be a national presence. "It's to raise a little awareness. We're just not present enough," Daniel says, before talking proudly of Sennheiser's lore. "Sennheiser is the inventor of the hi-fi headphone. Not a lot of people know that." Indeed, few realize just how potent Sennheiser products truly are. It was Sennheiser that released the first pair of open headphones way back in 1968, and it's Sennheiser that's continued to chase perfect, pure sound throughout the last few decades. And it's Sennheiser that last year debuted the HE1 Orpheus, a handcrafted set of headphones powered by a massive amplifier built from marble and driven by gold-vaporized electrodes and platinum vaporized-diaphragms. It's a device that costs tens of thousands of dollars and is hardly for use with your iPad on the train - but it's a device that showcases Sennheiser's pursuit of high-level sound. "Sennheiser has been on the forefront of audio strategy for years," says Daniel. "We just added the sexy aesthetics after we did the sound." Sound remains the company's top priority, but in recent years, it's been pushing to match the more attractive headphones delivered by the likes of Beats and Bose. There's the Momentum line of headphones, a sharp-looking line of headphones with rugged leather bands that seem tailor made for the stylish Manhattanite. And just this summer, Sennheiser released the PXC 550, a noise-canceling Bluetooth pair of cans designed to go head-to-head with Bose's QuietComfort line, but with touch controls built onto the earcups. These products, says Daniel Sennheiser, are examples of Sennheiser's ability to adapt to culture, proof that the company's products truly can fit the New Yorker. The Sennheiser aesthetic is unique, and the Momentums are especially eye-catching units, as fashion-conscious as they come. The hope is that consumers enter the Soundscape Showroom and see these products, falling in love with a new brand of headphone. "The qualities (of Sennheiser headphones) are great — the material, the leather, the steal," Daniel says. "But you also have to have the opportunity to touch it. In our experience, audio is something you can't describe. You have to put it on your head. "Sennheiser is not a brand for everyone. I think we're a brand for people who are in the know, who are creative, who really look for special things. That's why I think a place like New York is the place to be." And that's precisely why Sennheiser is finally here, with the Soundscape Showroom as its first truly potent portal in the United States. The goal is to build from here, Andreas says, to finally aggressively cultivate the Sennheiser brand in the U.S. It won't be easy, not with Beats and Bose dominant. But Sennheiser arrives prepared. "We have a serious plan, but we're also nimble enough to adjust," says Daniel. "As Frank Sinatra said, 'If you can make it here, you can make it everywhere.'" Sennheiser is headquartered in the municipality of Wedemark, Germany (near Hannover). Its United States headquarters is located in Old Lyme, Connecticut. The company has factories in Wennebostel (Wedemark, near Hanover); Tullamore, Ireland (since 1990); and Albuquerque, New Mexico (since 2000). Sennheiser's R&D facilities are located in Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, Singapore and San Francisco, California. Products This section needs additional citations for verification.

Journal Frankfurt http://www.journal-frankfurt.de/journal_news/Kultur-9/My-home-away-from-home-Jon-Hammond-zum-27-Mal-auf-der-Musikmesse-18308.html MY HOME AWAY FROM HOME Jon Hammond zum 27. Mal auf der Musikmesse Nomen est omen. Der Mann heißt Hammond und spielt eine Hammond. Der Organist aus New York freut sich auf Frankfurt und lädt zur Musikmesse Warm Up Party am 9.4. in den Jazzkeller ein. JOURNAL FRANKFURT: Was war für Sie zuerst da - die Frankfurter Musikmesse oder Auftritte im Jazzkeller? Jon Hammond: Die Musikmesse. Ich kam 1987 zum ersten Mal nach Frankfurt, zusammen mit Joe Berger, der auf der Messe für Engl Amplifiers spielte. Wir flogen mit der Lufthansa ein und teilten uns ein Zimmer im berühmten Prinz Otto Hotel am Hauptbahnhof. Schon in der ersten Nacht stellte mir Joe den großen John Entwistle, den Bassisten von The Who vor. Es wurde eine lange Nacht, in der wir Cognac tranken und Erdnüsse knabberten in eiern Suite des Marriott Hotels. Ich habe Joe bei einer Session mit John und Ringo Starrs Sohn Zak Starkey im Dorian Grey Club gefilmt bei einer Soundcheck Party. In den ersten paar Jahren spielte ich nicht oft live weil ich noch keine transportierbare Hammond Orgel hatte vor 1991 als ich den Prototyp einer XB-2 Hammond Orgel bekam mit der ich dann um die Welt reiste. Hauptsächliche dokumenierte ich aber die Messe für meine Cable TV Show in New York, die inzwischen im 29. Jahr als The Jon Hammond Show -- Music, Travel and Soft News präsentiert. Die harten Nachrichten überlasse ich CNN und den großen Networks (lacht). Vom ersten Jahr an fühlten wir uns der Musikmesse eng verbunden, haben seitdem eine tolle Zeit hier, kommen jedes Jahr wieder bis wir kleine, alte Männer sind. Das Jazzkeller-Konzert am Vorabend der Musikmesse ist zu einer netten Tradition geworden - wie kam es dazu, was bedeutet es Ihnen und wir werden Sie dieses Jahr diesen Abend im Jazzkeller zelebrieren? Ab 1991 lernte ich mehr und mehr Musikmesse-Menschen kennen und die mich und auch einiges von meiner Musik. Einige von ihnen ermunterten mich, doch auch für Auftritte nach Deutschland zu kommen weil es hier doch ein Interesse an Hammond-Orgel-Groove-Music gab. Mit der schon erwähnten, kleinen, kompakten aber sehr kraftvollen Orgel war das alles möglich. Zudem machte ich in New York gerade eine schwere Zeit durch, mein Vater war gestorben und ich hatte das Gefühl, einige Veränderungen könnten meinem Leben gut tun. Also kam ich nach Frankfurt mit meiner XB-2, allerdings mit einem Rückflugticket falls etwas schief gehen würde. Ich rief viele Musiker an, ließ sie wissen, ich bin jetzt da, lasst uns zusammen spielen. Das war für mich der Anfang einer langen, sehr speziellen Beziehung, vor allem zum Frankfurter Publikum nach ersten kleinen erfolgen im Jazzkeller und einer kurzen Auftritt im Hessen Report im Fernsehen. Beatrix Rief verdanke ich dieses "lucky light on me", eine tolle Erfahrung. Seitdem nenne ich Frankfurt "My Good Luck City" und im Jazzkeller begann auch alles für mich als Musiker. Deshalb liegt mir der Club auch so nah am Herzen, deshalb hatte ich auch die Idee, meine "Musikmesse Warm Up Party" dort zu realisieren, immer in der Nacht bevor die Messe startet was zu einer schönen Tradition wurde. Im ersten Jahr, in dem ich dann auch ein wenig Sponsoring von Philip Morris bekam, konnte ich damit einige Flugtickets für befreundete Musik bezahlen. Darüber war ich sehr glücklich. Dabei rauche ich selbst gar nicht. Wie würden Sie Ihr persönliches Verhältnis zu Deutschland und Frankfurt beschrieben? Lassen Sie es mich so sagen: ich liebe Frankfurt und die Frankfurter waren immer gut zu mir in all den Jahren. Ich könnte ein ganzes Buch über die Zeit schreiben, in der ich in Bornheim wohnte und Nacht für Nacht in der alten Jazzkneipe in der Berliner Straße auftrat. Das war der Treffpunkt, wo auch die Musiker der HR Bigband hinkamen und es gab eine generöse Chefin in der kleinen Kneipe. Auch Regine Dobberschütz und Eugen Hahn im Jazzkeller waren wahre Jazzengel für mich, die mir so vieles ermöglichten in der Zeit. Wir konnten auch in den Studios von AFN Radio spielen, waren die einzigen Musiker, die das - mit einer Sondergenehmigung des US Militärs - durften. Für ein wenig Promotion für die Musikmesse. Wir nannten das Programm für die AFN "Profile TV "-Show "Sound Police". Wir hatten viel Spaß. Kein Wunder also, dass ich Frankfurt als my home away from home begreife und ich mich jedes Mal wieder freue zur Musikmesse zu reisen, in diesem Jahr übrigens zum 27. Mal in Folge. Und ich bin diesmal besonders aufgeregt, heim nach Frankfurt zu kommen weil ich gerade 60 Jahre alt geworden bin. Wer wird in diesem Jahr zum Gelingen des Konzertes mit teils komponierter, teils improvisierter Musik, so nehme ich an, beitragen und was für einen Sound wird die Band präsentieren? Ich habe etwa 90% der Kompositionen geschrieben, die wir spielen werden. Es ist die Musik, die man auch in meiner New Yorker TV-Show hören kann und die mich mehrmals um die Welt getragen hat. Meinen Stil nenne ich "Swinging Funky Jazz and Blues" und featurert die ganz wunderbaren Solisten in meine Band: Tony Lakatos, den großen ungarischen Tenorsaxophonisten, der auch Mitglied in der hr Bigband ist, dann meinen alten Freund Giovanni Gulino, diesen tollen Schlagzeuger, der schon für fast alle Großen der Szene getrommelt hat. Ich liebe diese Jungs. Als Gitarrist ist mein alten Freund und Kollege Joe Berger dabei, den man auch als The Berger-Meister kennt. Auf diese Formation bin ich wirklich stolz. Werden Sie im Jazzkeller wieder eine Hammond Orgel spielen? Ja, sicher, das neueste Modell, eine Sk1, die exakt so klingt wie die legendäre B3. Ich liebe sie. Und sie wiegt nur noch sieben Kilo (Anm. des Autors: Das Original, ein echtes Möbel mit viel Holz, mussten immer zwei Menschen mit viel Muskelkraft die Treppen rauf und runter hieven), ein deutliches Indiz, dass wir in der Zukunft angekommen sind. Da stecken viele Jahre Forschung und Entwicklung drin, auch Bühnenerprobungen. Ich ziehe den Hut vor den Ingenieuren von Suzuki, ein unverwüstliches Instrument erschaffen zu haben. Und das unterziehe ich jetzt einen echten Härttest (lacht).

I really didn’t want to say it on the internet after receiving the horrible news in communications with our mutual good friend and fellow musician / bandmate Heinz Lichius. This is so hard to get my head around and accept it but I know it’s true that Lutz suffered a fatal heart attack while on tour in Tokyo Japan with his beloved NDR-bigband with Peter Erskine on the band - I can see Lutz’ smile and hear his voice and music in my mind like it was yesterday - and we spoke and played together so many times. So now I see the news releases are already out on the news FEEDS from the NDR, Hamburger Abendblatt etc. and a few too-early mentions on the Facebook, so I know it’s time to write a few words for those of you who might not know of Lutz Büchner, as follows: As Joe Gallardo the great trombonist and long-time colleague of Lutz’ said in email to me last night: “As you well know, Lutz was first of all a great human being and secondly, he was a masterful player. Lutz was my brother. We will all miss him.” - The very first time I met Lutz was in 1995 on a rainy night in Hamburg Eimsbüttel at the Thursday night weekly jazz session in Jazzclub Birdland - I had heard him the week before and pushed my Hammond organ on the wheels through the rain to the club and got there real early, Hr. Reichert the owner opened up the club and I was telling Mr. Reichert I came the week before but didn’t get to play so “early bird gets the worm...and maybe I’ll get to play with Lutz Büchner!” - well we did it and by good luck my friend Joris Dudli the great drummer was there - it was magic from the first hit. That’s where it started, I was living in Hamburg to play music and write tunes - like so many musicians following in the footsteps of The Beatles, by invitation of my sponsor Knut Benzner journalist moderator on the NDR. From then on together with main man Heinz Lichius drums who I had met just before when Heinz came over to meet me one afternoon - Heinz had recommended to check out Lutz, one of the finest rising musicians on the Hamburg scene. We had a lot of great times together on the bandstand and off from that time on - we played in Hamburg and his hometown of Bremen - turned out to be that Lutz was a real life jazz angel who saved my life at least twice, one time involving bringing me to the hospital / krankenhaus and translating to me what they were about to do to me - we escaped out the side door and the doctor came to our gig that night! I met Lutz’ Mom and Dad beautiful people when they came to hear us play in Bremen at Studio club April 7, 1998 - and most recently our last gigs together with my favorite musicians Michael Leuschner, (Heinz Lichius of course) “Fiete” Ernst-Friedrich Fiete Felsch NDR horn section brothers along with Joe Berger guitar, probably best gig of my life - Lutz was so happy to have found his love with his wife Bettina and he was always crazy about his son Asmus and his step daughters by Bettina, the happiest I have ever seen him, he glowed in the dark he had that much joy! -- Back in 2005 I had an idea, I said to my long-time girlfriend Jennifer: Lutz is one of the greatest saxophonists I ever heard, I want to feature him on a CD release, he could be making a great record every day! I couldn’t believe that he didn’t have any feature albums out at that point - so I discussed it with Knut Benzner and we all co-produced a recording session for this purpose in the famous Studio 1 at NDR, the NDR SESSIONS Projekt was born, with the addition of “Joe G” / Joe Gallardo on trombone and Heinz Lichius and myself, Rudolf Grosser at the controls big SSL console, we started playing in the morning and I played through the magic bass amp belonging to Lucas Lindholm - the boys took one long coffee break and other than that we recorded tunes all day long - I am so grateful that I’ll always have this recording date together with Lutz, of course later on Lutz came out with more records - but this one for me is my special keepsake that went down with the blessings of NDR with the help of Knut Benzner and Axel Dürr. So many stories I can tell you, but most importantly everybody loved Lutz, I know there are a lot of tears flowing now around Hamburg and Bremen, my heart goes out to Lutz’ Family, Friends and Musicians music brothers and sisters! The 2nd to the last time we played together, I hadn’t seen Lutz for a while and he told me about a real miracle of survival when he was driving on the autobahn with Bettina and the kinder all his happy Family in the car, I think there was ice on the road - a car slammed in to the back of his car demolishing the car, but Lutz’ horns were in the trunk - they all got crushed but it saved his Family! They were all shaken up but OK - the lucky star was shining over them, and even though Lutz is not with us physically anymore, his lucky star will always be shining - he was competely dedicated to the NDR-bigband family of musicians and his own Family - always a huge inspiration to me as a person and master musician, rest in peace my very special good friend Lutz Büchner - my deepest and most sincere condolences go out to Lutz’ Mom and Dad and Bettina and his son Asmus and step children by Bettina - all the folks who know and love Lutz, sincerely, Jon Hammond

Report / Obituary from Stefan Gerdes NDR: https://www.ndr.de/orchester_chor/b... - Stand: 12.03.2016 15:00 Uhr - Lesezeit: ca.4 Min. Trauer um Lutz Büchner “Der Saxofonist Lutz Büchner ist am 11. März während einer Japan-Tour der NDR Bigband im Alter von 47 Jahren an den Folgen eines Herzinfarkts verstorben. Es war ein großes Glück für die NDR Bigband, den Menschen und Musiker Lutz Büchner seit 22 Jahren in ihren Reihen zu haben. Er war ein grandioser, ein wahrhaft bedeutender Saxofonist mit einer unverkennbaren, einzigartigen Spielweise, die selbst dem ältesten und schon oft gehörten Jazzstandard immer wieder neue Seiten abgewinnen konnte. Vor allem aber brachte er auch seine Persönlichkeit in die Band ein: seinen Humor, sein ausgeglichenes Temperament und sein großes Interesse an allen Dingen des Lebens, das weit über die Musik hinaus reichte. Lutz Büchner war ein echter Teamplayer, vor und hinter den Kulissen.

Knuth: "Er lebte leidenschaftlich für und mit Musik"
Joachim Knuth, NDR Programmdirektor Hörfunk: "Die Nachricht vom Tod Lutz Büchners macht mich sehr betroffen. Ich habe ihn als einen liebenswürdigen Menschen erlebt, der leidenschaftlich mit und für Musik lebte. Lutz Büchner hatte den Jazz im Blut. Er liebte den spielerischen Umgang mit der Musik, die Improvisation. Der Tod dieses beeindruckenden Saxofonisten ist für die NDR Bigband, für den NDR, ein großer Verlust. Meine Gedanken sind in diesen Stunden bei der Familie und den Freunden Lutz Büchners." Programmhinweis
In Erinnerung an Lutz Büchner stellen wir in der Sendung am 20. März ab 22.05 Uhr einige seiner schönesten Aufnahmen mit der NDR Bigband vor. -- Fasziniert von Miles Davis
Lutz Büchner wurde am 5. August 1968 in Bremen geboren. Er interessierte sich schon früh für Musik, bekam klassischen Klarinettenunterricht und entdeckte als Teenager nach einem Konzertbesuch den Jazz. Als er den Trompeter Miles Davis hörte, faszinierte ihn die Möglichkeit, sich auch jenseits der geschrieben Noten auf eine ganz persönliche Weise ausdrücken zu können. Dieser improvisierten, sich immer neu erfindenden Musik wollte er sich widmen.

Lutz Büchner kam nach Hamburg und studierte Saxofon bei Herb Geller, dem damals bekanntesten Solisten der NDR Bigband. Schon bald spielte er dort im Saxofonsatz - zunächst als Gast, seit 1994 als festes Mitglied. In den Mittelpunkt zog es ihn, den eher besonnen Menschen, dabei nicht so sehr. Aber wenn das Scheinwerferlicht auf ihn zeigte und er zum Solo ansetzte, dann entwickelte sein Spiel eine ganz besondere Wirkung: Mit geschlossenen Augen stand er da, die Töne flossen ebenso überraschend wie logisch aus seinem Instrument, sein ganzer Körper schien sich dabei in Musik zu verwandeln.

In seinem Spiel steckte besondere Tiefe
Viele Gäste der NDR Bigband haben ihn und sein Spiel so erlebt und geschätzt: Jazzgrößen wie Al Jarreau, Bobby McFerrin, João Bosco, Omar Sosa oder Abdullah Ibrahim genossen es, wenn Lutz Büchner neben ihnen spielte. Der Amerikaner Dale Wilson widmete ihm und seinem Saxofon-Kollegen Fiete Felsch eine ganze Big-Band-Suite, und die Komponistin Maria Schneider wollte ihn nach einem Besuch bei der NDR Bigband am liebsten gleich nach New York mitnehmen. Es waren nicht nur seine technischen Fertigkeiten und seine nahezu grenzenlosen Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten, mit denen Lutz Büchner so begeisterte. In seinem Spiel steckte eine besondere Tiefe. "Es ist sein Sound", sagte Maria Schneider einmal, "Lutz berührt mich."

Solistische Höhenflüge und zarte Lyrik
In der Improvisation spiegelt sich ja immer der ganze Mensch. So konnte Lutz Büchner auf dem Tenorsaxofon unendlich packend, mitreißend und kraftvoll spielen. Unvergessen ist sein solistischer Höhenflug in der Duke-Ellington-Hommage "Diminuendo, crescendo and crescendissimo in blue", in der er minutenlang ein loderndes Feuer immer neu entfachte, bis die Zuschauer bei einem Auftritt der NDR Bigband in New York am Schluss buchstäblich aus den Sitzen gerissen wurden. Seine andere, lyrische Seite war besonders stark auf der Klarinette zu hören, auf der er zu den außergewöhnlichsten Stimmen des modernen Jazz zählte, vielleicht sogar weltweit. Intim und zart, wie gehaucht schwebten die Töne in die Luft, jeder von ihnen hatte Bedeutung.

Nicht nur in der NDR Bigband, auch in eigenen Formationen waren sein ausgeprägtes Spiel und seine ausgefeilten Kompositionen zu hören. Mit seinem Quartett (mit Sandra Hempel, Heinz Lichius und Pepe Berns) trat Lutz Büchner 2005 bei den 2. Hamburger Jazztagen in der Kampnagel-Fabrik auf. Im selben Jahr entstand mit dem Trio Connex (mit Björn Lücker und Philipp Steen) ein gleichnamiges Album, und 2006 erschien seine vielbeachtete, von der Kritik hochgelobte CD "Ring".

"Mein Ziel ist es", hat Lutz Büchner einmal gesagt, "ganz im Moment zu spielen." Wir verdanken ihm viele unvergessliche Momente. Mit ihm verlieren wir einen lieben Menschen, einen großen Künstler und einen wunderbaren Kollegen.

Google Translation of Stefan Gerdes’ obituary of Lutz Büchner: Trauer um Lutz Büchner -- The saxophonist Lutz Büchner died on March 11 during a Japan tour the NDR Bigband at the age of 47 years to a heart attack. It was a great happiness for the NDR Bigband, to have the man and musician Lutz Büchner for 22 years in its ranks. He was a magnificent, truly significant saxophonist with an unmistakable, unique play that even the oldest and often included jazz standard could abgewinnen new pages repeatedly. Above all, he also expressed his personality in the band a: his humor, his even temperament and his great interest in all things in life, which extended far beyond the music. Lutz Büchner was a real team player, before and behind the scenes.
Knuth: "He lived passionately and with music"
Joachim Knuth, NDR program director Radio: "The news of the death Lutz Büchner makes me very concerned I have experienced him as an amiable man who lived passionately and music Lutz Büchner had the Jazz in the blood He loved the playful use of... the music, the improvisation. the death of this impressive saxophonist for the NDR Bigband, for NDR, a great loss. My thoughts are at this time with the family and friends Lutz Büchner. "
program Note
Daughter Lutz Büchner we in the mission on March 20, from 22:05 some of his most beautiful recordings with the NDR Bigband ago.
Fascinated by Miles Davis
Lutz Büchner was born on August 5, 1968 in Bremen. He took an early interest in music, got classical clarinet lessons and discovered as a teenager after a concert jazz. When he heard the trumpeter Miles Davis, he was fascinated by the opportunity to express themselves beyond the written notes on a very personal way. he wanted to devote himself to this improvised, always reinventing music.
Lutz Büchner came to Hamburg and studied saxophone with Herb Geller, the then famous soloists the NDR Bigband. Soon he was playing in saxophone sentence - initially as a guest, since 1994 as a permanent member. In the center, he moved, the more prudent people, not so much. But when the spotlight was on him and he started to Solo, then developed his game a very special effect: With eyes closed, he stood there, the sounds flowed as surprising as logically from his instrument, his whole body seemed to be doing in music to transform , -- In his game put special depth
Many guests of the NDR Bigband have him and his game so experienced and appreciated: jazz greats such as Al Jarreau, Bobby McFerrin, João Bosco, or Omar Sosa Abdullah Ibrahim enjoyed it when Lutz Büchner played next to them. The Americans Dale Wilson dedicated to him and his saxophone colleagues Fiete Felsch a whole big band suite, and the composer Maria Schneider wanted to take him for a visit to the NDR Bigband prefer equal to New York. It was not just his technique and its almost limitless expressive possibilities with which Lutz Büchner enthusiastic way. In his play put a special depth. "It is his sound," Maria Schneider once said, "Lutz touched me."

Soloistic booms and delicate poetry
In the improvisation so the whole man always reflects. So Lutz Büchner could play endlessly enthralling, exciting and powerful on the tenor saxophone. Unforgotten is his solo flight of the Duke Ellington Tribute "diminuendo, crescendo and crescendissimo in blue", in which he several minutes a blazing fire always rekindled until the audience literally at a performance of the NDR Bigband in New York at the end of the Sitting were torn. His other, lyrical side was particularly strong to listen to the clarinet, on which he was one of the most extraordinary voices of modern jazz, perhaps the world. Intimate and delicate, like breathy floated the sounds in the air, each of them had meaning.

Not only in the NDR Bigband, even in his own formations were heard his strong play and his polished compositions. With his quartet (Sandra Hempel, Heinz Lichius and Pepe Berns) joined Lutz Büchner 2005 at the 2nd Hamburg jazz days in the Kampnagel factory. In the same year (with Björn Lücker and Philipp Steen) was created with the trio Connex a self-titled album, and in 2006 he released his highly acclaimed, highly acclaimed by critics CD "Ring".

"My goal is," Lutz Büchner once said, "to play the very moment." We owe him many unforgettable moments. With him we lose a loved one, a great artist and a wonderful colleague.
