In 2004, the Hahn-Wiesner Quintet played its first gig. At that time the wish was born to go to the studio with this band, which was finally fulfilled in 2010 and resulted in the CD “Project Style”. With this album, the quintet ties in with the hard bop recordings of the 50s, 60s years and adds its own facets to this sound. With one exception, it consists of original compositions, which are presented in elaborate arrangements with devotion and coolness.
