Munich Blues - the soundtrack to the book series!
With "Schneekönig (Snow King)" the sixth volume of Max Bronski's crime series about the junk dealer Wilhelm Gossec will be released in November 2018. In addition to working on the novels, Max Bronski has always written lyrics that have addressed the spirit of books in other ways: hard-hitting, tucked neat, scolded, laughed, cried, despairing in itself and the world. It would never have become something if Schorsch Hampel, the Munich blues poet, had not accepted the lyrics. Scrupulous as he is, he has only sneaked around it, had first to convince himself of their seriousness and then - but with awe! - His most beautiful music set to: Intimate, clear and supple, as it is just the blues that sits inside him.
His music makes it, she is matured and streetwise and refined the lyrics. Max Bronski loves such music since the sixties, seventies, with this project a youthful dream, a CD with his own band, with three top-class musicians: Schorsch Hampel (guitar, vocals), Dr. Will (drums, vocals) and Robert Landinger (guitar). Max Bronski: "I am happy that I am allowed to play the bass in this great line-up. My lyrics are Bavarian, Blues in High German does not work and English lyrics are not my profession. We have tried to create something poetic with our music and our lyrics that the listeners and readers will not confuse with the yodel baroque of the Bavarian wave. I thank Schorsch and his friends for helping us bring this project to a happy end."
