about

German drummer and composer Mareike Wiening releases her debut album featuring her original compositions performed by an outstanding quintet of New York improvisers. Metropolis Paradise is dedicated to Wiening’s six year residence in the Big Apple.

Wiening’s compositions are lyrical, direct and emotional, as well as rhythmically intricate, maintaining an accessible sound that draws you in. Using a palette of tenor saxophone, piano, guitar, bass, and drums, the group sound is one of give and take, a musical dialogue between soloist and accompanist.

The New York Times calls it, “original music with a planar, modulating harmonic language and a propulsive drift. Her language is part chamber jazz, part big-boned rock percussion, part free improvisation.”
