Modern Jazz Tradition

The BLUTONE SEXTET is made up of six of Hamburg's leading jazz musicians and was founded in 2016 by drummer and percussionist Thomas Altmann.

In its repertoire, the group takes reference to Hard Bop and Post-Bop of the 1950's - 1960's and beyond.

The instrumentation is formed by a front line of trumpet, tenor saxophone and trombone plus a piano - bass - drums rhythm section.
