“Upgrade” denotes an increase in quality, but for the brothers this doesn’t mean “higher-fasterfurther”; For them, less is more. Understatement is given its real worth when the barely 21-year-old Julian launches into his breathy trumpet tone, astonishing in its substance and clarity. Roman is the other pole that makes the brothers’ playing so attractive - on piano, Julian’s two-year-older alter ego is the empathetic and resourceful initiator. With their innate talent for strong melodies, the art by which the Wasserfuhrs narrate their marvellous jazz tales is pure pleasure to the ears. The musical journey from Remember Chet to Upgraded in Gothenburg is by no means a change of direction. The binding philosophy to their music can be described as “richness through reduction”, the challenge being to purge the music and carve out its core.
