    all music and concepts by gebhard ullmann

" To call this the best jazz album of the year so far invites all kinds of arguments – after all, can a recording this opaque, rhythmically inchoate and impossibly esoteric be much more than a curio? Absolutely! Whether you consider this free jazz, ambient music or indie classical, it’s a rich, murky masterpiece."
(lucidculture 2/'12)

" transatlantic is an album on which every track is almost perfect."
(allaboutjazz 3/'12)

" gebhard ullmann is one of the most prolific and creatively fertile composer-improvisers working on either side of the atlantic and this cd is one of his most original works."
(bruce gallanter, downtown music gallery, nyc 3/'12)

" the choc. " (jazz magazine france 5/'12)
