Future Memories is the new album from New York-based German drummer and composer Mareike Wiening, featuring her longstanding band that includes saxophonist Rich Perry, pianist Glenn Zaleski, guitarist Alex Goodman, and bassist Johannes Felscher. Recorded in one day in the midst of an extensive tour, the album captures the live group energy and cohesion that only comes from playing together regularly.

Featuring eight of Wiening’s originals inspired by her band members, the compositions are emotional, rhythmical and most importantly, always lyrical. The music was captured in January 2020, just before the first pandemic lockdown, and the album’s title encapsulates Mareike’s feelings: the unexpected value of our future interweaves with various levels of past experiences, memories and the unknown. Balancing great compositions with soaring solo explorations, this is exciting, thoughtful, and engaging creative jazz.

"As a composer, Weining goes for mood and atmosphere more often than hard-driving rhythms; like Max Roach, she’s interested in the melodic and orchestral possibilities of percussion, preferring to ornament the music rather than keep time."
- Stereogum, The Month in Jazz, November 2021

“An impressive sophomore effort from this bright talent.”
- Mark Corroto, All About Jazz

"This music suggests a view on the New York jazz scene with a faint European spin; this composition, "An Idea is Unpredictable," even has transatlanticism built into the framework, in its toggling between one idea and the next."
- Nate Chinen, WBGO 'Take Five' feature

“A real comer with a lot of curiosity … she’s well on her way to crafting her own genre and niche. Smart stuff throughout.”
- Midwest Record
