In times like these you need groups. Bands. Bringing people together within a creative process.

Calling on this plain fact Stuttgart native Martin Sörös promptly brought together four of the most sought-after and prolific musicians of the young German jazz-scene and founded his r’n’b infused jazz-ensemble Dr. Syros.

Take Munich-based trumpeter Julian Hesse for example who during the past years has established himself as an inventive and technically superb instrumentalist and composer, or Daniel Mudrack, who is not only a sublime drummer, but also responsible for innovative sound concepts as can be heard on the debut album. Grounded by gig-hardened bassist and jazz-laureate Sebastian Schuster the band is indeed moving forward, leaving behind stereotypes and not giving a dime about styles and definitions. Whether one wants to call it jazz or hiphop is up to the critics – fact is that four intriguing musicians come together celebrating the musical moment. Signing with Challenge Records (NL) their debut album “Joint Practice” was released on November 2nd 2018.
