Marcus Klossek’s brilliant album “Taken From The Skies” (Unit Records), this time strengthend by the saxophone of Finn Wiesner, is inviting and open, energetic and cool. A sound-set Heist-Movie, it describes the planning, preparation and performance of the musical coup.


“Tele-Jazz at it’s best!”
Concerto Magazine

“There is, understandably, a film score feel to this album that sounds like music that might accompany a reissue of a film from the new-wave of German cinema in the ’60s. There’s enough in here to warrant multiple listens, and one suspects that live, it would be somewhat different from a conventional jazz guitar show.”
