It's always a real pleasure for me to go on tour with my quartet. If you get lucky, then a great band ends up being even more than a combination of superb musicians, great music and intimate performances. It becomes a unit built on a foundation of trust and friendship which is something that usually only develops over time and yet for me is an aspect of working with people that I look for in all of my projects. The Max Frankl Quartet embodies all of the conditions and positive characteristics mentioned and therefore is one of the most enjoyable band projects I have ever been involved in. The concerts we played together this year in April and May, allowed us to grow together even more, resulting in that we are all really excited to head back out back out on tour later this year.

I am very proud to present this fantastic group, all stemming from my secondary hometown Zürich, to audiences throughout Germany in November 2015. We are going to start off in the Textile Museum/Helmbrechts near Nuremberg. Then we'll be off to play the classic infamous club, "Das Rind" in Rüsselsheim. After that, we are going home to the club in Waldstrasse 4, near my hometown, Weilheim. This one is real special to me because it's the stage that I started on and where I played my first sessions and concerts. I also happened to end up working behind the bar as well. Home is where the heart is! Our grand finale for this little tour will be at the Jazzclub Erfurt. We looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible! Thanks to Stadt Zurich Kultur, Pro Helvetia and SIS for supporting our tour.
