Volker Schlott - leader, producer, arranger, alto-, sopranosax, flutes
Since 1997, Volker Schlott is the sideman of the American soul- and jazz singer.
The first record together was “Blue Light & Nylons” K. Weil/G. Gershwin.
But the actual spiritual kinship began in the beginnings of the 90s, when I was called to West-Berlin to record a few saxophone solos for a singer – there SHE was.
A few years later, a dream came true to became a member of her band, and to play uncountable numbers of concerts together and meanwhile recorded over 10 records together.
The recent five recordings I supervised also as the producer and arranger.
With her, I also work in other projects together like the founding of the association “Yes We Can-Berlin”, the “Zeitzeugen” Project with 65 singers and the DSO Berlin or the
development aid project in Lesotho in Africa, an educational program with music classes for children of three schools in Lesotho.
