Lavinie Cloutier C'est un très bon album! Jazz plus classique au début et ça progresse vers une ambiance plus expérimentale. J'adore ça!

Modern Music Dan Transferring Klossek’s trademark nimble lines and harmonic landscapes to a larger ensemble embracing brass, this is a deft expansion with Tough Town showing the band at its punchiest and Reason 27 at its most lyrical. A great listen. Favorite track: Tough Town.

Tom Landon This not only a REAL jazz album, it's also a REALLY GOOD jazz album. With the addition of a brass section well served by some excellent compositions & arrangements, tightly written but leaving space for some fine solos from all concerned, Marcus Klossek has produced his best album yet, sprinkling it all with his mellifluous Telecaster. Bravo! Favorite track: Tamouré (Five Eight).

"Blink 6 is a rich and sophisticated masterpiece,
providing a spectrum of experiences from well-crafted
compositions to impromptu improvisations!"

"Orchestral sounds with beautiful solos and a clear guitar lead."

"Playful modern jazz firmly rooted in the present moment."
Jazzthing Magazine

"Exciting and often extremely swinging music!"
Guitar&Bass Magazine

"Tightly arranged brass sections, melodious tunes, fantastic solos!"

"Right up to this extensive and multifaceted narrative work,
of which it can be said: the risk was worth it."

"An album that rewards its value in multiples with every listen, perfect."

Guitarist Marcus Klossek – a master on the Fender Telecaster, which Bill Frisell and Jakob Bro also enjoy playing – has caused a stir over the last ten years, especially with his Electric Trio, which includes Carsten Hein on bass and Derek Scherzer on drums.

For his new band Blink 6, Klossek reinforced this trio with three wind players from the Berlin scene, namely trombonist Anke Lucks (Insomnia Brass Band), trumpeter Nikolaus Neuser (Potsa Lotsa) and tenor saxophonist Ignaz Dinné.

"I started to compose for a sextet line-up without knowing who was going to play in it," the guitarist said. “After I had composed eight pieces during six months, I needed musicians who could read notes well, who could improvise over changes and who could improvise freely.

He quickly found the right tenor saxophonist in Ignaz Dinné.
"Ignaz plays a great free solo in 'Reason 27'," Klossek stated happily. He noticed trumpeter Nikolaus Neuser in the band Potsa Lotsa. Klossek knew Anke Lucks from the Insomnia Brass Band, but he was mostly attracted by a YouTube video that he had discovered on the Internet. “She can also play well over changes,” the guitarist said.

After a short rehearsal phase and a few concerts with the sextet, they went to the Berlin Zentrifuge Studio where Tito Knapp recorded the music . Klossek then mixed the music together with Knapp; the mastering was done by Johannes Kellig in the renowned Bauer Studios in Ludwigsburg. "Blink 6" was produced by Klossek and Volker Dueck.

“When I was composing, I just let it go without constantly judging what was produced,” Klossek recalled. “That helped a lot to shape the material. Afterward, of course, I went over it again and was then very happy with the result."

The eight songs live from many influences and move between contemporary jazz, experimental rock and new music. The multidimensional unity, to which Blink 6 developed quite quickly as a band, filters Klossek's music through the different perspectives of the musicians involved. The songs not only sound different every time at concerts, but Blink 6 has additionally succeeded in making their exploration of melody, harmony and rhythm sound exciting and fresh at all times.

As a guitarist, Marcus Klossek deliberately restrained himself on "Blink 6", his tenth album as a band leader, because of course he knew that he was no longer the focus of the music on this project. The focus is on the music itself, and the interplay of the three wind instruments with Klossek's Electric Trio has not only grown beyond the originally composed material, but it also provides the listener with a sound experience between innovative power and an energetic vibe.
