His incredible technical knowledge, the imaginative control of his instrument and the lightness with what he was able to adapt to any musical surrounding gave him exceptional development opportunities. For over thirty years, until his death in 2007 he was one of the most in demand session musicians. His name can be found on more than 800 jazz, pop and rock albums. At the same time the ten times Grammy award winner developed to one of the most passionate and most dynamic jazz soloists, an incredible improviser and imaginative composer. With his 15-person ensemble "Quindectet, a chamber orchestra with a brass and woodwind section and string players (Grammy award in 2004 for the album "Wide Angles") he wrote brilliant arrangements where the single orchestral sections that have been put in layers over the guitar, bass, drums and percussion containing rhythmic group could be clearly and precisely recognized. The whole ensemble plays with the agility of a considerably smaller group and gives the compositions an additional dynamic and expressivity.
