Royal Flush

by Felix Peikli

Youth, burning energy, and talent merged with the experience of seasoned veterans and legends in Jazz has resulted in a never-before-heard sound. While bringing the clarinet back into focus, this music is most easily described as "Music for the People".

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I have enjoyed playing with my group «Felix Peikli Quintet» on the road over the last years performing original material for audiences worldwide with great success. Royal Flush is an extension and continuation of this success story, by broadening the horizon of Jazz to include vocals, synths, acoustic guitar, flute, percussion, and more. The core of the album is the Quintet. The musicians in the Quintet are all amazing and truly talented artists on their own and, in addition, some of my best friends. Together as friends we have such a strong connection - that, combined with our youth, burning energy and talent, results in a group sound that is unique. To me, these guys are truly nonpareil, just like the poker hand Royal Flush - composed of five cards, each irreplaceable and essential, but unbeatable when together.

It is when I reach the milestones in my life that I take a moment to reflect upon the past and wonder “How did I, a young clarinetist from Oslo, Norway, find myself in New York City, performing for audiences throughout the world?”. That is when I remind myself that the ongoing journey that I have embarked on is not all just thanks to my own efforts. Royal Flush is not a result of my prowess as an artist, but an inevitable outcome of all the incredible and inspiring people I have been so fortunate to meet in my life that have provided constant support, and believed in my music and me.

The making of Royal Flush has been a journey involving so many amazing and incredibly talented artists who worked tirelessly because they believed in our mission for success. I am truly thankful and deeply moved by all the love and support I have received throughout my life, and I will continue to honor that by using the opportunities I have been given to spread happiness and joy through my music.

A sincere ‘Thank You’ goes out to the Quintet, Marcus Miller, Lee Hogans, Luis Bacque, the entire “Royal Flush” crew, Buffet Group USA, Vandoren USA, my mentors Ralph Peterson Jr. and Harry Skoler, all of my supporters, fans, friends, family, and at last, to my beloved mother Une and grandfather Terje to whom this album is dedicated. I give you Royal Flush. Go All In.

- Felix Peikli
