JIM & THE SCHRIMPS featuring Asger Nissen, Julius Gawlik, Felix Henkelhausen, & Jim Black

Recently relocated from Brooklyn NY, veteran drummer Jim Black leads a brand new band of some of Berlin’s finest young jazz killers. Featuring Danish alto saxophonist Asger Nissen, and the German shredders Julius Gawlik on tenor sax and Felix Henkelhausen on bass, this strong, tough, and fast-swinging band writes and plays original songs for quartet inspired by the music of Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk, Paul Motian, and Joe Henderson.
The recent Covid lockdown situation has been very difficult for artists in so many ways, yet at the same has presented a great opportunity to rethink, reassess, and design plans for a more effective and sustainable performing future.
“The past year I began to feel musically restless, and I needed a new challenge for myself. The need for something like the energy one finds in extreme sports, or maybe the thrill of driving a precision sportscar... so I made a band that reflects this urgency and energy.”
Jim & The Schrimps will record and release their debut album for Swiss label Intakt this year. The band looks forward to launching out into the traveling and touring circuit with upcoming tours and concerts around Europe planned for 2022-3 and beyond.
