Contemporary Jazz production from Germany that meets international standards? Yes, with Peter Seiler’s compilation of music meant to listen to alongside drinking wine or champaggne you get a very cool record of this genre. “Not only for purists”, as Peter says on his website, this CD is classified as “Light Lounge Jazz”. But on the other hand, this selection contains some well known but nevertheless demanding standards accompanied by some original tunes by Seiler himself that don’t let it sound false to mention him as a composer in o ne row with Louis Bonfa, Herman Hupfeld, Errol Garner or Harold Arlen.

Tunes like “Nice To Have Met You”, “Another Gloomy Day”, “Timebend” or “Close Your Eyes” definitely do have the substance to be added to the classics of the genre – that kind of popular Jazz they play in hotel lounges, very good restaurants and bars, on cruising boats or the like.
