Saxophonist/Bass Clarinetist Gebhard Ullmann has recorded 60 CDs as a leader or co-leader for some of the most prestigious record labels in contemporary music worldwide. He is one of the leading personalities in both the Berlin and international jazz scenes and has received numerous awards for his work including the Julius Hemphill Composition Award in two categories (´99), the Deutsche Phonoakademie award (´83 together with Andreas Willers), the SWF Jazz Award (´87 again together with Willers), the first Berlin Jazz Award (2017), among many others.
The Scott DuBois / Gebhard Ullmann Duo will perform DuBois´ original compositions from his new album, Summer Water. The music reflects the fluidity of powerful bodies of water through the ebb and flow of texture, tempos, dynamics, mood, and color, while capturing the abundance of beautiful melody and harmony hinted at by summer’s natural grandeur.
