Fields of Pannonia (Sunnyside Records, 2015)


“Rooted in the notion that art can and will stretch as far as the imagination will take it” – Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz

“Mythical journey in sound” – John Savage, The National Flute Association Quarterly

“Music that is exciting for the heart, mind and soul” – Paula Edelstein, AXS

Like laying on your back and watching the clouds roll by” – George Harris, Jazz Weekly

Artmann’s new CD “Fields of Pannonia” (Sunnyside Records, 2015) follows on his critically acclaimed debut album “Uneasy Dreams” (2011) and features all original music, with influences ranging from Bach over 20th century classical music to Wayne Shorter. Joining him on his latest offering are long-time associates Gregg Kallor on piano, Johannes Weidenmueller on bass and Jeff Hirshfield on drums. The music on “Fields of Pannonia” is firmly rooted in contemporary jazz but has a distinct European or even global “accent”. The title is a dedication to Artmann’s musical roots, the rich cultural and musical crossroads of Central-Eastern Europe.
