The discovery of German Jazz pianist Uli Lenz's CD, Uli Lenz: Rainmakers Dance, is a thought provoking and moving event. Rarely will you hear a Jazz album with a combination of such power and grace. From the spellbinding delicacy of A Perfect Couple to the stormy heights of Traumatic Experiences with Bavarian Trapdoors, Uli Lenz unique sound and writing style make him a rising star on the Jazz horizon. His songs, One Year After and Umbrella Indorrs, were featured on the soundtrack of the award-winning film Sideways starring Paul Giamatti.


Already renowned internationally, Lenz is joined on his U.S. debut by music masters Ira Coleman on bass, Horacio ‘El Negro’ Hernandez on drums, with Arkadia label mate alto saxophonist T.K. Blue on several cuts as well. With a formidable command of the keyboard, composition and style, Uli Lenz: Rainmakers Dance (also available via download) not only represent the best of Jazz's past, present and future, but masterfully displays the pianist’s playful sense of time and melody on this impressive album.
