For ten years now, Erdmann 3000 almost playfully manage to combine tradition and avant-garde. The band around Berlin- as well as Paris-based Daniel Erdman brings together four individualists from Berlin's younger jazz scene: exceptional musicians who have already left their artistic mark with projects such as Der Rote Bereich, Aki A& the Good Boys or Das Kapital

Together they create an interactive sound whose expressivity as well as profound sense of humour and nonchalance renders irrelevant all existing jazz clich?s. With Erdmann 3000, jazz has already arrived in the future. After three studio albums - recovering from y2k (jazz4ever records 2000), welcome to e3k (enja records 2004) and supermicrogravity (enja records 2007) - it is high time for Erdmann 3000's first live record.

It is in their live performances that the band's strengths are best experienced: the musicians leave space for their electrifying material to develop and their spellbound audience contributes to an atmosphere that is hard to describe. These moments might best be described as magical. And it is this magic, experienced by musicians and their audience alike, that makes live jazz a unique and inimitable experience.

Daniel Erdmann

"Daniel Erdmann is currently becoming one of the most inventive players on the international scene" Gerard Rouy, Jazz Magazine 2007 "the concept is just as brilliant as its execution.. This music is so fine, intimate, so complex, that it becomes already nearly a language. A language, which is probably understood worldwide.”

Friedrich G. Stern, Nürnberger Zeitung 12.02.2005 "The young lion from Berlin has found a language which sounds like a walk through the work-site surrounded streets of his city. An Album filled with surprising turns that documents the change of his hometown unsentimentally and that fits well for it."

Wolf Kampann, Zitty 2001 "Erdmann’s sound makes tons of weight flow in the air. He has learned his lesson of tradition, understood Coleman and Coltrane like not many others. But he is not standing there on stage to tell us all the things he knows about jazz. No, he is looking for a common language with the audience."

Tagesspiegel 2000 "Daniel Erdmann is in the first line of courageous interpretators. His improvisations have their own sound, recognizable, captivating and of all colours." - Jazzfiles 2001.
