9.5.2014 / New Philipp van Endert Trio Production „Presence“ (5069 JS) will be in stores on May 23rd 2014 and available as CD or Vinyl (180g audiophile)!

Recorded during a tour in 2013, this production is the reflection of the beauty, intensity and intimacy of a band on tour. The Trio with André Nendza/bass und Kurt Billker/drums takes the listeners on a journey across sparkling sound streams and quietly flowing ballads and guides them with fascinating poetry and ease through these musical soundscapes. After three highly appreciated CDs (including a nomination for the Deutscher Schallplattenpreis), “Presence” brings home the message of how PVE3 has been winning jazz fans´ hearts for the last ten years. The band has truly evolved into an important voice of the scene.

Don't miss them on tour.

29.1.2013 / Philipp van Endert Trio in Ankara

The Philipp van Endert Trio will perform at the Ankara Jazzfestival/Turkey on 21st February 2013! We look very much forward to this great event, which is made possible on invitation by the Goethe-Institut Ankara and will be broadcasted by Turkish television.

Besides that the trio will also be performing concerts in Austria and Germany in march 2013 and will also record their fourth album.

5.1.2013 / NEW MAGNOLIA-ALBUM

Since October 2012 a brand new album by Magnolia (Anne Hartkamp - vocals, Philipp van Endert - guitar) is available! Some reviews about the MAGNOLIA album, "Wait A Second" are to be read e.g. in these magazines: JazzThing #96 ("...vocal acrobatics... ballad sensuality ... lots of wit"), the online issue of RONDO ("...virtuoso musicians beyond any doubt...") as well as Jazzpodium 11/2012 ("...wonderfully coherent album ... risk propensity, mastery, empathy and musicality aplenty..."). MAGNOLIA has now a home of its own, small but cozy: the one-page webpage www.magnolia-duo.de is online, offering info, press kit, audio and video links, including one of Thomas Kruesselmann's beautiful videos from the recording session. Plus, we're on Soundcloud now!

5.11.2011 / ON THE ROAD

I am glad to announce several concerts with my trio starting in January 2012 during our “Rosebud Tour 2012” that will give us the opportunity to continue to present the music of our latest record live (Philipp van Endert Trio – Rosebud / JazzSick Records). Four of these concerts will feature Rick Margitza on saxophone as a guest who will be joining us then for the sixth time on a tour and who developed into a very inspirational and familiar voice for this band. We are also very much looking forward to our “pure” trio concerts as well as our invitation to perform at the Jazz Festival Steyr (Austria) that will give us the chance to work together with incredible trumpet/flugelhorn player Lorenz Raab. For concert dates and more information check under PVE Live!

Also a few concerts are scheduled for spring with my duet partner Magnolia (female singer Anne Hartkamp). I am very excited to play them since we will be performing our brand new program which will be recorded in a studio by the end of march. Therefore you can expect a new album of this project hopefully by fall 2012.

8.2.2011 / ROSEBUD

We just returned from a very nice tour with my trio and special guest Rick Margitza on saxophone and were able to give the listeners a good taste of our new program from our upcoming CD “Rosebud”. The concerts were packed and the fact that we sold plenty CDs rise my hopes that our new record is going to be well received on its official release March 11th 2011. Unfortunately my plans to release it also on vinyl are on ice but I hope that will be possible a little later. For now “Rosebud” will be available as CD and Download.

I am very much looking forward to this years concerts with my trio (especially during jazzahead/german jazznight in Bremen April 29th 2011) and also to several concerts with my friend and mentor Lajos Dudas who will be celebrating his 70th birthday this year.

28.05.2010 / TWO ABOVE THE OPEN SEA

A new Duo CD with my friend and “inspiration” Mathias Haus on vibraphone (recorded live on January 9th at JazzClub JazzSchmiede in Düsseldorf) is out and called “two above the open sea”! We just celebrated it with a sold out concert and CD presentation during the Düsseldorfer JazzRally festival. The CD will be in the stores by June 25th 2010. If you cannot wait visit our label JazzSick Records and have a listen and make a pre order. We are very happy with the recording and at the same time thankful that we had the luck to catch and capture such an inspiring evening right at the first time this new program was ever played live.

To give this new recording enough time to breath I decided to continue with mixing and mastering of my new trio CD (featuring former Miles Davis Saxophonist Rick Margitza on 5 tracks) not before summer/fall 2010. Therefore the new Trio album will be out in January 2011. I am still planning to also release it on vinyl since there is an increasing group of vinyl fans out there who would appreciate that.
