The music formation JAZZINTEAM interprets original compositions and selected jazz standards of the Danish singer and bandleader Gitte Deubelbeiss. With the dark, variable voice of Gitte, the solid sound of Urs Luthard on piano, the groovy carpet of Emanuel Schnyder on bass and the spirited playing of Robert Weder on drums, the songs are performed with special musical guests like Peter Schärli on trumpet or Tommy Inderbinen on tenor saxophone in a humorous, heartwarming and expressive way.
Swinging jazz in Danish and English with a strong pinch of blues, Latin, soul to funk promises Nordic spice, horizontal width and harmonic waves.
The singer and bandleader Gitte Deubelbeiss has been on the road with her formation "JAZZINTEAM" since 2007 in projects in duo, trio, quartet and quintet with wonderful musicians. With Ruedi Vögeli (Guitar, d. 2017), Roberto Di Martino (Percussion) many unforgettable moments of playing together in duo and trio were experienced and the musical direction of JAZZINTEAM was created.
The CD production "Et øjeblik" (a moment), which followed in 2016, was given a special musical touch with trumpeter Peter Schärli and bassist Emanuel Schnyder, and the five original compositions by Gitte Deubelbeiss were excellently realized in a quintet.
We did not perform a concert tour in 2017, as unfortunately our guitarist Ruedi Vögeli passed away after a short, severe illness in mid of 2017. After this sad event, a musical break followed to heal the wounds of this loss. From 2018 we started healed and with renewed drive in a new sound direction – we were able to work out a new basic sound with Urs Luthard on the piano and develop musically with the repertoire of JAZZINTEAM.
Since 2021, jazz drummer Robert Weder from the city of Olten has been setting the groovy beat at JAZZINTEAM, since percussionist Roberto Di Martino left the formation at the end of 2020 in favor of other projects.
In this new rhythm section constellation, the sound of JAZZINTEAM has returned to where the music carries us and offers room for other special musical guests.
