Simon Oslender Super Trio feat. Lee & Haffner
After his acclaimed debut album About Time (2020), Simon Oslender takes the piano trio to a new level with his follow-up Peace of Mind. In it, the Aachen-based pianist, keyboarder and (Hammond) organist, who also tours with Bill Evans & The Spykillers!, isn’t content to simply combine his knack for emotional melodies and thrilling harmonic twists with strong funk grooves once again. He’s now recruited two living jazz legends: the American bassist Will Lee (who has played with James Brown, Horace Silver, Patti Austin, George Benson and D’Angelo) and the German drummer Wolfgang Haffner (who has performed with Albert Mangelsdorff, Konstantin Wecker, Peter Herbolzheimer, Chaka Khan and Klaus Doldinger’s Passport). Sparks were flying between the three musicians from the very first moment in the studio, which is why they have decided to celebrate this special connection live with an exclusive record-release tour.
