German group De Phazz will be back in Bucharest for a concert on November 15th, at Sala Palatului. The concert is part of the group’s tour to promote their new album Prankster Bride.

Collective lounge project De Phazz, supported by producer Pit Baumgartner, counts among its permanent collaborating members Karl Frierson, Pat Appleton, Barbara Lahr, Otto Engelhard, Roy Randolph and Charity D. Sanders.

The group explored various genres so far, from club sound to orchestral arrangements for extended formulas, trip hop and lounge jazz. It put out nine albums since its establishment in 1997, where sounds of rock guitar, classical violin, reggae or dance hall can all be heard. De Phazz is a reference name in lounge jazz but has also made strides into mainstream pop with their upbeat The Mambo Craze. The group incorporates in its creations samples of the Golden Era jazz music. Hits such as Hell Alright, Jazz Music and No Jive are landmarks of the chill out genre and were covered in numerous compilations.

Their new album, Prankster Bride, is a mix of interesting vocal tonalities and complex instruments. The new album is also a tribute to the feminine voices in the group.

The group that will go on stage in Europe includes soloists Karl Frierson and Pat Appleton, alongside Oli Rubow (drums), Bernd Windisch (bass) and Markus Barlet (baritone, saxophone, flute).
