I create new compositions, no one has played before us, so we are starting something new , we build up a new repertoire, a new spectrum, the gunter hampel music, for improving bands like ours, for NOW and the future,  that is what Louis Armstrong did, Count Basie, or Charly Parker, or John Coltrane,  we play my new  compositions, experience them  and we improvise fresh within the moment we perform. you think this is not possible? watch us and listen and be part of the dance. participate.  this is, what this whole website is for: to introduce you to new material, my compositions and the phantastic results my bands can achieve when playing this new, fresh stuff of being in the NOW ! my compositions are just starting positions for each performer. our task is, everytime we play, to get together like the great TEAMWORK of german soccer TEAM Borussia Dortmund, they are the perfect incarnation of a real jazzband -one for all and all for one- we can kick in our own creations, improvisations,ideas, from listening to each other and then move to our collective playing.we are NOT interpretating any broadyway tunes, we all are throwing everything from what we got, body and soul ,personality in our cutting edge creations every time we perform.and let me remind you , our creations are timeless. listen to my stuff from years ago , sounds, like it just got recorded.
