Over the last four years, one of today's most exciting European contemporary / avant-garde jazz acts, ROOFER has played countless concerts in Germany, Austria, Poland, Russia, China and Switzerland. This quintet, founded in 2014, has received multiple awards for its performances and been invited to a diverse range of international festivals.
With nonchalant ease, the jazz quintet ROOFER, performs a balancing act between the avant-garde and an awareness of tradition. The band has impressively demonstrated this in their albums "Prospect" (2015, Leo Records) and "Moscow Files" (2017, Leo Records), which garnered considerable praise in the international specialist press. After numerous tours, festivals and concerts, ROOFER has made a name for itself, across national borders and far beyond, as an audacious and playful jazz collective that is keen to experiment and plays its way right into the hearts of its audience. With the new audio release, which is out at February 2019 on German trombonist Nils Wogram's label „nWog Records", the band is set to commence a new chapter.
Tonight, ROOFER will play music from their latest release, "Starlex Complex" (nWog Records, 2019) as well as a few compositions from their album “Prospect“ (Leo Records, 2015).
