With almost a completely new repertoire, sophisticated instrumental sounds and a driving rhythmic force swing is here to stay and proudly presented by Gabi and bobtale records.
Howard Alden aus New York zur neuen CD von Helmut Nieberle:
“Helmut Nieberle’s compositions constantly surprise and delight me, always full of memorable melodies and subtle twists (and I find myself singing them in my mind, the mark of great tunes). After many happy years of collaboration with Helmut, I’m always amazed by his unique jazz guitar voice that combines the best of tradition, his many personal influences and an in-the-moment sensitivity and spontaneity!”
Und Jim Mullen aus London:
“A dazzling and exciting showcase of the many styles and compositions of Germany’s King of swing guitar!”
Juan Martin Koch in der Mittelbayerischen Zeitung vom 16.08.2019:
