Berlin based saxophonist and composer with links to the UK through his membership of the Anglo-German quartet Paragon. Also leads his own groups including Double Trouble featuring twin double bassists Robert Landfermann and Andreas Lang plus drummer Jonas Burgwinkel. Latest album “Double Trouble Live” released 2015.
"The recording retains much of the quartet's live energy and although uncompromising the music remains readily accessible to most adventurous jazz listeners. "
"The overall ensemble sound of Septuor de Grand Matin is brilliantly recognised, full of delightful small details within a convincing overall framework. A work of which Ehwald can be justifiably proud."
