Album Notes
CD Review: Jerry d´Souza/ All About Jazz (May 2012):
By JERRY D'SOUZA, „All about Jazz“

Ohne 4 gespielt drei is a trio of improvisers active on the improvised jazz scene in Köln and Berlin. All three lived in the Ruhr area before saxophonists Katrin Scherer and Sven Decker moved to Köln, while drummer Bernd Oezsevim took up residence in Berlin. They make for perfect cohorts through an intuitive understanding that processes the inner workings of a composition for a satisfying resolution.
Scherer and Decker complement each other as they kindle a composition through a judicious balance of sound and silence. They make "The Move" on a melodic escarpment, with Scherer on baritone saxophone and Decker on tenor. The two saxophones forge a bright path underlined by a crisp beat set by Oezsevim. When the air dissipates, the two saxophonists get into some call-and-response before harkening back to the melody. Change is rife, as Decker uses his horn to add depth before exploding into free terrain all the while counterpointed by the baritone. Shape shifts but the body is compact and compelling.

The mood and tone are different on "Warteschleife," a breathy, shimmering ode that unfurls in soft folds. This does not draw from the innate intensity that Scherer and Decker invest—the lines taut, yet filled with an indelible emotional presence. The tune is made all the more attractive thorough the varied hues with which Oezsevim textures the rhythm.
"Up & Download" is effervescent, the two horns dancing in unison, with long lines interspersed by short bursts. The greater thrust, and so the impact comes from the free-wheeling jaunts of Decker and Scherer, who use the glockenspiel to drop liquid notes into the once molten mix.

The trio is comfortable in both giving a theme its due and finding ways to add physical and spatial dimension. Invention thus becomes a rational exponent of composition giving their sound a certain attraction.
