There is no need to introduce the bustling musician Alexandra Lehmler in the region, we were sure of that as early as in 2014. She was born in Bad Ems, lives in Mannheim and studied in Mannheim, Stuttgart and Paris. She won the “Landesjazzpreis Baden-Württemberg” and had the opportunity to line up her dream band at the Festival for which she selected Frenchmen Franck Tortillier and Patrice Héral, the late magnificent trumpeter Herbert Joos, as well as bassist and life partner Matthias Debus. They recorded the summer album “Sans Mots” in this line up at the Ludwigsburg Bauer Studios. In May 2019 Lehmler, Debus, Totillier and Héral returned to Ludwigsburg to play an exclusive studio concert, which was released on vinyl in a limited edition, as usual. The Vinyl Record Release Tour, scheduled for May 2020, this time together with Italian guitarist Federico Casagrande had to be cancelled for obvious reasons. They will now catch up with presenting their new material in a new quartet line up at the Alte Feuerwache.
