German pianist Stafan Graser grew up in a christian environment and made his first musical experiences as a church musician. Later on he becam e jazz pianist, but never forgot his musical rootes.
In 2015, the catholic church renewed it’s songbook for the services “Gotteslob” (praise the Lord) , and many of the songs, which a many of believers had grown up with, were replaced. On this CD many of the old songs from this service book appear in a brilliant version for jazz piano. Most of the songs are several hundred years old, the oldest at first was notated about 1400 BC in ancient Mesopotamia. There’s also a version of an old biblical psalm ((Jeremia 29, 13f), newly adapted by the artist.
