years of being a musician, Karlheinz Miklin jr. decided to form the first band under his own direction in 2021.
The band´s concept (as almost all of it´s repertoire) has been created by him. And – as a logical consequence of his musical developement as a Rock and Jazz musician with classical background – it offers a pretty diverse mix of musical styles and lots of freedom musically.
To bring his musical ideas to life he has selected musicians whom he had been working and connected especially well with before. All off them are masters of their instruments and have long been established as valued members of the national and international Jazz scene.
