Gero Schipmann, guitarist from Cologne, has been inspired to write the music for this album by a twelve-month stay in Iceland. Petrichor is not simply a sampler which sets out to paint a musical portrait of Europe’s remote north, but rather than a mere collage of reconstructed nordic sirens, folk airs and ethereal „Lord of the Rings“ film music, we hear open-sided jazz from a quartet head up by a guitar which exhibits neither technical prowess for its own sake nor tediously melancholic nebulosity.
Following his graduation in music in Cologne, Gero is now based in London, where he is completing a masters degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
The distinctive sound of the band comes from grooves rooted in funk and hip-hop, enriched with harmonies of jazz and vocal melodies. Becker’s compositions and improvisations are sensitive and profound.
Ten new songs, songs without words, that create vivid imagery in the minds of the listeners. Musical poems, born in an urban environment, in search of the poetry by the roadside.

In 2014 we remastered the Original Mastertapes from 1982. The new Master is in High-Resolution-Audio Format (96Khz/24bit).Floating, the debut album of Monika Linges in 1982 is a very personal album. Monika Linges who wrote the lyrics to most of the tunes, sings about, childhood and youth.
At the beginning of the 1980`s, Monika Linges was one of the famous female jazz-singer in Germany. She toured with her international band through nearly all European countries, and was invited to several Jazzfestivals, Radio- and TV-shows.
After her early success in Germany in the 1980’s Monika Linges had a revival in the beginning of the 90`s, starting in the London Jazz-Clubs. The DJs digged out her old recordings and played them in the clubs. Her songs later were licensed to several Compilations in England and Asia.
Because of the new demand both LPs of Monika Linges were reissued and released also on CD. Her records now were re-questioned also outside Europe and were successful a.o. in the USA. At that time she also was a guest for a recording of Nobukazu Takemura and the Hipsters in the zone.
Later her recordings were also released in Japan by Celeste.Over the years Monika Linges became the best selling Artist of Nabel!
