„No other young jazz-band in the last years in Germany has caused such a stir as Max Andrzejewski’s “Hütte“ [Hut]“ says the acclaimed music critic Wolf Kampmann. The Berlin based band HÜTTE won the Neuer Deutscher Jazzpreis 2013, released three albums - partly featuring a vocal ensemble - and played international tours, e.g. at Südtirol Jazzfestival (IT), Enjoy Jazz Festival Heidelberg, Umbria Jazz (IT), April Jazz National Concert Hall Dublin (IR), J.O.E. Festival Essen, Just Music Festival Wiesbaden, Jazz Units Berlin, Jazztage Regensburg, NueJazz Festival Nürnberg, KLAENG Festival Köln and many more.
The four strong individuals - the drummer und composer Max Andrzejewski, the saxophone player Johannes Schleiermacher, the guitar player Tobias Hoffmann and bassist Andreas Lang - cultivated a playful, stubborn, passionate playing. Strong melodious compositions, avantgarde swing and expressive freedom… HÜTTE is burning. After two successfull albums of the band plus vocal ensembles („HÜTTE und CHOR“ (Traumton
2014) and „HÜTTE and The Homegrown Organic Gospel Choir“ (Whyplayjazz 2017)) the highly energetic and award winning quartet is playing as the instrumental core group again - and they play their asses off.
