Lukas Diller Quartett I JAZZ IN THE CASTLE

Thursday 12 August | 19:30 | Schloss Elisabethenburg | Schlosshof


In a time of omnipresent, often far-fetched unique selling points, the Lukas Diller Quartet has the courage to simply be an outstanding jazz formation with a classical line-up. Not only is the combination of alto saxophone, piano, bass and drums timeless, the original compositions also appear timeless. The main leg confidently grounded in the diverse jazz tradition, the free leg on a constant tour of discovery in the here and now, the Lukas Diller Quartet celebrates modern jazz with that certain something of inspiration, wit and energy. All band members bring something of their strong personalities into the powerful, always transparent overall sound - the prerequisite for "terrific interplay and excellent dynamics" (Southgerman newspaper). In addition to the instrumental class, this matter of course has something to do with the fact that the musicians have known each other for a long time, be it from their Nuremberg studies or from the Bavarian State Youth Jazz Orchestra.

Lukas Keller - double bass

Mark Scheibe & Band I JAZZ IN THE CASTLE

Thursday 12 August | 19:30 | Schloss Elisabethenburg | Schlosshof


Mark Scheibe is a singer and pianist who skillfully expresses himself in stylish jazz, chanson and swing. His songs and arrangements seem like from another time, but live absolutely in the here and now thanks to contemporary lyrics. With pure passion he balances with his powerful, warm, sensitive baritone voice on the fine line between nonchalant irony and sincere confession. The Southgerman newspaper recently called the entertainer in a tuxedo the "best Udo Jürgens revenant of all time". Before the album is released in February 2022, the bon vivant, who lives in a West Berlin hotel, comes to Meiningen with his trio and promises an hour of happiness.
