Lars Kutschke – While We’re Here
Format: CD – Digital
Label: Timezone Records
Release: 2022

The songs on ‘While We’re Here’ are created over the course of many meetings between German guitarist Lars Kutschke and artistic friends and companions. With the aim of enjoying the moment together and making music “while we’re here” – which is not taken for granted. They reflect a firstclass mix of different rhythm groups, soloists, composers and styles such as blues, gospel, soul or jazz.

Companions such as singer Tad Robinson, guitarist Kirk Fletcher or organists Simon Oslender and Alberto Marsico take turns taking the stage alongside numerous other artists and contribute to the colourful kaleidoscope of moods and sounds.

Each piece creates a very emotional image pattern. Is a stop on a colourful journey through a land of influences, experiences and encounters.
