“(...) Musical Esperanto of the highest standard (...)”                                                      gitarre & bass
Johannes Lemke - André Nendza - Christoph Hillmann
Johannes Lemke The ensemble „tria lingvo“ provides saxophone player and composer Johannes Lemke (born in 1966) an excellent opportunity to live out his strong inclination for crossing the borders between modern jazz and ethnic music. With his two “comrades in arms” he has unquestionably found his ideal soul mates who share his passion for toying with musical details and odd-metre playing. Since 2003 he and his two band mates have consequently developed an unmistakable band sound. In this connection “live-experience“ (numerous concerts, radio broadcast and clinics) and intensive rehearsal periods (as preparation for up to now 4 CD recording sessions - the last one produced by the Deutschlandfunk) have played an important role. To him cooperating intensely with Dominique Pifarély which brought about a confrontation with Dominique’s twelve tone technique approach to improvisation as well as the recollection of Lemke’s experience with Indian music inspired by working with Zoltan Lantos was of high personal importance. With both excellent musicians “tria lingvo” toured in 2009 and 2011. Moreover Lemke has been working with Thomas Rückert - one of the leading German pianists – since 2005. Their “brilliant live-recording” (jazzthing magazine) was released under the title “jnana” in 2008 on Jazzsick Records. Most recently he has become a member of Ramesh Shothams „Madras Special“ bringing him to India this fall, where he will be on tour with the Karnataka College of Percussion. This June he will be guest in Laia Genc’s "Liaison Tonique“ performing such renown places like the Expo '15 in Milan. Johannes has studied extensively with many well known teachers and artists, including; Willie Thomas, Dr. Rajeeb Chorkroborty, Gerd Dudek, Charlie Mariano, Rob van de Broek and Ramesh Shotham. These and many others have encouraged Mr. Lemke to commit the time and efforts necessary in developing the skills that now identify him as one of the premier saxophone artists in Europe.
