The latest release from flautist/composer Christian Artmann is an impressive followup to his 2011 release "Uneasy Dreams." The newest pallet of music from Artmann gives the listener a full dose of new original compositions. Joining Christian Artmann on his new offering is Gregg Kallor on piano, Johannes Weidenmueller on bass and Jeff Hirschfield on drums. "Fields of Pannonia" features all original music with influences ranging from Bach over 20th century classical music to Wayne Shorter. The music is firmly rooted in contemporary jazz, but with a European or even global "accent." The title is a dedication to Artmann's musical roots, the rich cultural and musical crossroads in Central-Eastern Europe.
