The Bonn musician Claus Schulte studied jazz drums at the Folkwang University in Essen.
Since then he has worked internationally as a sideman for various artists, such as Layla Zoe, Mrs. Greenbird, Martin Zingsheim, but also with regional artists such as Waldemar Leczkowski and Thomas Kimmerle or the Springmaus Improvisation Theatre.
For this project Claus Schulte was able to win the singer Valerie Simmonds to dedicate herself to the repertoire of the “Great American Songbook”.
The two are supported by Lukasz Flakus (piano), Fritz Roppel (bass) and Florian Esch on the trumpet.
Valerie Simmonds made a name for herself as a singer, dancer and musical actress.
She has appeared on numerous CD productions and has also worked for big names such as Udo Lindenberg, Lionel Richie, Kylie Minogue & Caterina Valente.
