Watch the latest episode of Yamaha Sessions feat. Ralf Gustke Band

In our latest edition of Yamaha Sessions, we welcome drummer Ralf Gustke with his superb group consisting of Claus Fischer (bass), Jesse Milliner (keys) and Lorenzo Ludemann (trumpet). Though Ralf has been booked for international soul & pop tours– among them Chaka Khan, Gianna Nannini and German popstar Xavier Naidoo- and his drumming can be heard on over 150 recordings, 2017 marked the release of his first ever solo album “Flying Days”, which beautifully captures Ralf´s ability to unite superb technique and complex grooves with tasteful musicianship.

For his Yamaha Session, Ralf teamed up with Claus Fischer and Jesse Milliner, who are part of the record, joined by Lorenzo Ludemann on trumpet.

Claus Fischer is Germany´s first call pop and jazz bassist, who made a name for himself in the European Jazz and Funk scene. Further credits include sessions and recordings for: Chaka Khan, Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour, Lionel Richie, Christopher Cross, Don Grusin, Charlie Mariano, Dan McCafferty and many more.

Keyboardist Jesse Milliner finds tremendous freedom in improvisation: discovering solutions as they arise in the moment. Whether he is working as a sideman for major acts like Lee Ritenour, Trilok Gurtu, Larry Carlton, or as a composer – Jesse Milliner believes in the dynamic process that gives music its power and beauty.

Lorenzo Ludemann is a highly demanded trumpet player and performs with bands such as the “Heavytones” - Germany´s no.1 Late Night TV Band as well as many pop stars.
