International project co-led with saxophonist Johannes Ludwig.
"The two band leaders Gero Schipmann and Johannes Ludwig are close friends that share a musical identity that’s powerful and imagiative. Both of them compose for this quintet, their music sounds different yet fits together so naturally as if it was meant to be all along. Both are exciting virtuosos on their respective instrument and are joined by one of the hottest rhythm sections in the UK – Sam Leak on piano, Max Luthert on bass and Will Glaser on drums. Their music goes deep, reveals human desire, allows human error and inspires the listener to embrace everything that makes life worth living."
Debut Album "The Human Element" released in 2019.
