Further succes & new stuff

We had the opportunity to play in Leipzig for winning the annual New Talent Award and to play for the "Werner Richard - Dr. Carl Dörken" foundation and win their support.

Also there's a new song on Soundcloud and this video from a recent concert:

CD-Release "Bouwer"

We finally release our debut album "Bouwer" in cooperation with DoubleMoon and Jazzthing.
To go along with it, we made this nifty trailer:

Maastricht Jazz Award

The Netherlands as well! In beautiful Maastricht we won the first price playing at the local jazz award.

Grand Prix in Avignon

We made it again! In beautiful Avignon, France we won the "Tremplin Jazz Award". Next year we will be opening the Avignon jazz festival and will record at the (quote) "best studio in france". Woohoo!

First price at "Young Germann Jazz Award"

We're extremely greatful for winning this despite the fantastic competion, thanks!

Runner-Up at "Jazz Award Munich"

Didn't work out this time. Nonetheless we had a great time and congratulate our Cologne-based colleagues who won!

A foundry, a factory. Industrial plants, focussed on processing their products in alembics with next to no margins for error. Always keeping one goal in sight: all components resemble each other down to their molecular level and are being led to a single purposed after being sold.


The goal of the Cologne-based trio differs greatly from that of the common foundry. It is about diversity, aesthetics and their own roots. In their time of playing, the group grew into a unit. At all times their compositions mirror the authentic sound of JAF Instead of forcing every workpiece into a cast and thereby burdening them with tight restrictions, they choose the freedom of interaction, microtonal structures and playful grooves. A basic consideration for melody leads their way, even though they don’t stop at rustic sounds and tunes.
