We won in the Netherlands as well! In beautiful Maastricht we won the first price playing at the local jazz award.

First price at "Young Germann Jazz Award"
We're extremely greatful for winning this despite the fantastic competion, thanks!
Runner-Up at "Jazz Award Munich"
Didn't work out this time. Nonetheless we had a great time and congratulate our Cologne-based colleagues who won!
A foundry, a factory. Industrial plants, focussed on processing their products in alembics
with next to no margins for error. Always keeping one goal in sight: all components
resemble each other down to their molecular level and are being led to a single
purposed after being sold.
Not so with JUST ANOTHER FOUNDRY!
The goal of the Cologne-based trio differs greatly from that of the common foundry. It
is about diversity, aesthetics and their own roots. In their time of playing, the group grew
into a unit. At all times their compositions mirror the authentic sound of JAF
Instead of forcing every workpiece into a cast and thereby burdening them with tight
restrictions, they choose the freedom of interaction, microtonal structures and playful
grooves. A basic consideration for melody leads their way, even though they don’t stop
at rustic sounds and tunes.
