The ensemble won the Berlin Senate’s “Studio Prize” (2012) to record their debut album “Graduation Day.” It was selected as one of the Top 10 Albums of 2013 by “Jazz Thing” magazine and received great reviews in Switzerland (“Kulturtipp Zurich”), Austria (“Concerto”), Germany (“Jazz Thing”, “Deutschlandradiokultur”) and Serbia (“Politika”, Vojislav Pantić). The ensemble has been invited to perform in the concert series “Jazz im MIM” at the Music Instruments Museum, Berlin Philharmonic in April 2015.


» Set it aside ("Graduation day") and let it grow on you. For those who hear this album for the first time, it takes a while to understand the full package of the sound. What the Serbian born, Berlin based trumpeter is offering is beguiling und fascinating at the same time. «
