From 'Gitarre&Bass' 9/07 : Bademeister is the German word for 'pool supervisor' or 'bath attendant'. Therefore, the normal activities for these persons are observing the movements in the Bath, saving lives and grand us that the collective paddling is fun. But not Bademeister, not 'the Pool Supervisors' from Bremen, Germany : these guys are young JazzRockers who know all the dodges. I like to stress : JazzRockers ! The typical soft-boiled Fusion-Style is namely what they left out - and that gives extra-points. The Band Members Frederic Drobnjak(g), Claudius Tölke (b), Mathias Büsseler (dr) and Martin Hanisch (g) told us that they like their fellows Stern, Scofield, Metheny, Holdsworth, Frisell, Rosenwinkel, Greg Howe and Tom Morello - no bad sources of inpsiration. Sco teached them mainly to play really relaxed : some mud here, much more blues over there and in between a pinch of Funk & Insanity - very pleasant ! Is anyone here who likes to say that there is no way in doing exciting music with a Two-Guitar Band ? i don't think so. Great !!! Frederic Drobnjak, Martin Hanisch (Guitar), Claudius Tölke (Bass) and Mathias Büsseler (Drums) have their own musical statement and sound that they present on their new CD with the title 'Bademeister'. The four musicians play a good mixture of Jazz, Jazzrock, Rock and Rockjazz, that I have listening to and enjoyed many times. They play technically clean, clear and have a very beautiful tone-range, using the electronic possibilities that they have at their disposal in such a way, that a beautifully unified musical result is the end product. In other words: an interesting and musically beautiful CD. From : Prof. Bernard Hebb.
