This is the Berlin based jazz and blues trio’s highly anticipated first studio album - the previous live album “Live at Oxident” was released in 2007  - yet the fans of the trio’s traditionally made acoustic music found it more than worth waiting for :  

‘Am I’ was recorded live in only two days in the living room of a long-time fan who let the trio use his exquisite Bechstein piano.

Out of this intimate and private atmosphere emerged an album portraying the outstanding musical talent of pianist Chris Szachnowski (Poland) and of the extraordinary saxophone player Joe Kucera (Czech Republic).

One can feel the magic of the wee hours of the morning, how a glass of wine may have been put down while the wall clock gently ticked away the time in the background…

On  ‚Am I’ the Reifegerste Trio not only interprets jazz and blues classics in their uniquely impressive manner as they show at their concerts; it also has some surprises in store:

Gentle hues of electronic sound pearls, recorded and mixed in Simone Reifegerste’s own Backyard Princess Studios.

Berlin and Prague based Reifegerste Trio have created their very own classy (and sometimes classic) jazz style through their special performances and compositions. On stage, the trio's soulful interpretations of jazz, blues and even pop classics enchanted audiences everwhere.
