Sounds and colours from Germany's deep south. Colorbox is the common project of a bunch of the finest musicians of the blossoming young German jazz scene: The Colorbox masterminds Volker Giesek and Robby Siemens have already proved their team-quality by leading other groups of the Munich area to success. Volker Giesek has also evolved as a sought-after composer and arranger. Robby Siemens currently draws attention as a section leader and soloist of the Big Band Burghausen with the famous leader Al Porcino. Drummer Elmar Schmidt not only is the leader of the great Brazil show "Aquarelas do Brazil" but also gives evidence of his talents as a seasoned session pro who has worked with virtually every interesting act in Europe. Young bassplayer Patrick Scales has been a member of Klaus Doldinger's Passport and leads his own band Scalesenders.
With their longtime project Colorbox the four musicians literally worked for years to create the perfect circumstances to document their compositions on CD. On their debut album "Forbidden Blue" the quartet teams up with some musical friends and welcome a very prominent guest star: Randy Brecker himself contributes marvelous trumpet and flugelhorn lines to two of the tracks.
"Our music is focused on communication", says Robby Siemens, whose elegant sax playing gives the Colorbox its sonic trademark. "Like painting it is a very emotional and universal way of nonverbal communication - so it is not just coincidence that the name of the group and the album title both have to do with colours."
These nine timeless beautiful fusion tracks, mostly composed by pianist Volker Giesek, prove, that intelligent and ambitious music can also be entertaining and enjoyable. Uplifting nonverbal communication on a high level!
