Georg Ruby is one of Germany`s leading jazz pianists. His second solo release "Windmills" is proof of how varied improvisation music can be. In this vein it is possible that in Ruby`s concerts Theo Mackeben`s "Bei Dir war es immer so schön" is to be heard alongside free improvisation (Instant Composing), followed by a very special version of "Bye, Bye Blackbird": spontaneity mixes with structure, sound pervades groove. Through an original preparation of the piano`s strings Ruby creates not only an extraordinary colourfulness of his instrument`s sound but in some parts the impression of listening not only to one piano player but to several ones.

"Man kann diese Dreiviertelstunde intensiver Musik mehrmals hören und entdeckt immer wieder Neues, Überraschendes, Widerborstiges und letztendlich auch gut versteckte romantische Momente." - RONDO 10/2017, Werner Stiefele
