The new Mo’ Blow live album is out since a couple of weeks and has received some great feedback so far! we had a lot of fun recording it and are looking forward to the upcoming tour dates! stay tuned…

"Even the 10-minute-plus quartet number "Call Me Milroy" holds the listener's attention without the aid of a guest, thanks to inventive soloing from all of the musicians and the sheer energy each player brings to the performance. (… ) Klein's "Ray" is the album's most intriguing track. Featuring violinist Adam Baldych, in rollicking form with a dynamic solo as well as calmer passages of pizzicato playing (...)“ www.allaboutjazz.com

„The German-based Jazz Funksters Mo’ Blow have recorded a live album in the tiny A-Trane Club in Berlin. The atmosphere there is captured to a T on this recording. There’s some rather fine fiddle-playing from this, from Adam Baldych who is guesting on the album. This is Mo’ Blow with „Ray“.“ www.bbc.co.uk/radioscotland

Dear Friends, 2015 has almost come to an end and while i'm taking a moment to look back i'm trying to figure out how all these memories can fit into 12 month of time?! Apart from being a such a lucky m.....fucka again that I was able to play 128 gigs in 15 countries, some tough decissions had to be made: Our long-time band Mo' Blow decided to split next year and for the first time in the last 10 years I had to take a break from teaching. Now we have a second flat in Hamburg and I just rented a piano there and I hope that i'll find more time to compose. Elisa and me went to New Orleans for the first time and we finally had the chance to spend a couple of days in NYC. So i'm curious where this beautiful journey called life will take us in the next 12 month and I want to thank you all for being part of it. See you again soon, take care, Matti.

I'm very proud that I had the chance to be the Musical Director for the Gala Concert "Rock And Romance". We performed rock and musical songs featuring amazing solists Coco Fletcher, Mark Seibert, Seran Bilgi, Thomas Borchert, Sabrina Weckerlin, a killing 14-piece band including vocal section, string section, horn section, full rhythm and a 60 piece symphonic brass orchestra! Later on Frank Wildhorn joined the band to perform a couple of his compositions on piano together with the band and the singers. 3500 people in the audience and standing ovations after almost 4 hours of show... I'll always remember that evening. A big THANK YOU to everybody involved! ... See MoreSee Less
