Not Far From Here introduces award-winning pianist Julia Hulsmann’s newgroup in which her long-time working trio with Marc Muellbauer and Heinrich Kobberling (together now for 17 years) is expanded to a quartet with the addition of Berlin-based saxophonist Uli Kempendor .

In Kempendor ’s playing “both suppleness and unruliness are in ample supply”, Jazzthetik has noted, and he brings a fresh energy to the H lsmann group concept. Each member of the quartet brings in original compositions, with Julia herself contributing five pieces for the album. Repertoire is augmented by a timely cover of “This Is Not America”, David Bowie’s 1980s hit single (co-composed by Bowie, Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays), which appears here in a quartet version and a solo piano variation.
