The Covid-19 crisis is not currently dealing with culture in a very careful way. For the second time, an emergency stop, which makes not a few of those affected even doubt their raison d’etre. The eternal discussion of relevance deals precisely with those who have classified themselves in the pigeonhole “Jazz”. On the other hand, Phillip Dornbusch’s recipe is as simple as it is obvious: to make the world a little bit better. “I want to raise awareness of certain problems with my music,” the 26-year-old tenor saxophonist explained his chosen path. “For example, I wrote ‘Mourning’ when the ship “Sea Watch 3” was detained with many refugees onboard in Italy in July 2019. That moved me a lot, and the piece emerged from these feelings. When we play it live, I imagine the audience dealing with the story. And so I want to do my part to help things move in a different direction.”

Someone is really considering here why he is on stage, why it should be worth competing with thousands of well-trained saxophone players in an imaginary way, and what concepts could then be used to stand out from this anonymous mass. No, he does not want to reinvent the wheel, the 26-year-old said, who lives in Berlin-Schöneberg and comes from Stadthagen near Hanover. Coltrane remains unmatched, as does Lester Young, or one from the younger generation like Chris Speed. He has also reaped inspiration from awesome co-musicians such as Niels Klein, who has enriched the saxophone set in the Federal Youth Jazz Orchestra under its conductor Phillip Dornbusch since 2018, and Philipp Gropper, Pablo Held and Uli Kempendorff, but also from teachers such as Peter Weniger, Greg Cohen, Julia Hülsmann, Jörg Achim Keller, Marc Müllbauer, Gregoire Peters and Sebastian Gille. He got to know and appreciate all of them during his studies at the Jazzinstitut Berlin. They showed him paths to take, which he deliberately wanted to go alone.
