ORDER ALBUM: PAYABLE IN ADVANCE
PANJOY – Panjoy
The PANJOY trio was founded by Sven in Freiburg in 1989 and was his first project as a bandleader, composer and organizer.
It lasted about 8 years, with Henrik Mumm on bass and a total of three drummers. From 1989-93 with Ingo Martin from Freiburg, with whom PANJOY was in the studio twice, and from 1995-97 with Uwe Kühner from Stuttgart, studio session 1995.
The material recorded during the three studio dates has now, 25 years later, been combined into one album.
At the three studio sessions in 1990, 1993 and 1995 one can clearly hear the musical development from rock-jazz to experimental, sound-painterly avant-garde jazz.
Panjoy still impresses today with enormous playing energy, a very unique trio sound and the attempt to advance into more and more unknown worlds of sound.
Release 2022. Label: Foxtonemusic.
Simple Songs / Gernot Ziegler
Gernot Ziegler – keyboards, Sven Götz – guitar, Gernot Kögel – bass, Stefan Günther-Martens – drums
When live music practically came to a standstill in 2020, the four musicians and friends, who had been together on a wide variety of stages for many years, began the contact-free production of a new album and recorded previously unreleased compositions by the keyboardist.
The album “Simple Songs” consists mainly of clear song structures and is strongly influenced by the blues in all its shades – crisp and groovy, full of energy, with a proper portion of earthy funk, often with a tongue-in-cheek nonchalance and relaxed understatement.
Mix and mastering: Gernot Koegel.
Release 2021. Label: Foxtones music.

The Sven Götz Quartet was a German-Swedish project with Swedish musicians Mattias Grönroos on double bass/upright bass, Tommy Holmgren on drums, and the German saxophonist and jazz-prize winner of the country, BW Ekkehard Rössle. Due to Sven’s Swedish heritage, this project was very close to his heart. With the exception of one Swedish folk song, the compositions are all his. The two live recordings on the CD were recorded by Image-Hifi editor-in-chief Dirk Sommer and published in the “German Book”, the German real book of the Nil Edition.
