New Release From Amsterdam Guitarist Linus Eppinger



Amsterdam-based guitarist Linus Eppinger joins forces with Jorge Rossy and Doug Weiss and pianist Nicolai Daneck for his debut album Leaning In. Release June 5, 2022.

The Barcelona-based label has a long history of documenting the stars of tomorrow and Eppinger’s mix of standard repertoire with standout originals is a logical match. 

Born in Los Angeles, raised in Germany and based in Amsterdam, his sound is warm, relaxed and steeped in tradition, having studied under greats such as Peter Bernstein and Julian Lage at Jazzcampus Basel as well as Jesse Van Ruller during his Masters at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam. 

Debut albums from young, conservatoire-trained jazz musicians can sometimes run the risk of sounding flashy or overplayed. In the case of Linus Eppinger the opposite is true; the music is self-assured, soulful and honest, finished with flashes of real personality and humour. 

Recorded at ‘t Zonnehuis in Amsterdam, the albums eight tracks are a mixture of Eppinger’s originals and standard repertoire.
