At the beginning of 2016, I produced autograph cards for Joel Forrester, one of New York’s most important Jazz, Stride and Bop pianists. It shows a photo of him I took in New York one year ago. And of cause I was glad to be at his concert in Bremen now, where he “inaugurated” the cards for his German fans.

You can read a review of his impressing concert here, to find out more about Joel and his music, please visit his own website.
For the pianists who read my Blog: You can play some of his tunes by yourselve, because Joel published “Joel’s Tunes”, a book with the notes of his own favorite songs. It is unbelievable, but up to now Joel composed more than 1.600 tunes and songs!

If you visit New York, you have to go to one of his gigs, he constantly plays 2 or 3 times a week at different venues.
