A tonal journey around the world 


Charles Davis & Captured Moments

Charles Davis - Flutes 
Sven Götz - Acoustic  Guitars 
Steffen Hollenweger - Bass 

The group CHARLES DAVIS and CAPTURED MOMENTS led by the Australian jazz flutist Charles Davis is one of the most successful formations working at the moment on the German and Swiss music scene. Their last CD "Nexxt" received widespread acclaim in Germany. Their distinctive chamber music, fuses the various elements of jazz, blues, arabian, indian and east European music, flamenco, bossa nova, rock, folk and bebop into a unmistakable "Captured Moments" style of jazz playing. The trio has played in most of the leading jazz clubs in Germany. 

CHARLES DAVIS, one of Europe's leading flute players, has a wide range of musical activities and interests.  He is also leader of the Flute Quintet "Four or more Flutes" that has played in various Jazz Festivals in Germany and the indian fusion group "Ensemble Chanchala" with the tabla player Sandip Bhattacharya. He is currently working with the German narrator Karin Scholl in the project "Indian Fairy Tales".

SVEN GÖTZ, the German-Swedish jazz guitarist studied at the Musikhochschule in Stuttgart and brings to the group his experience in playing in many musical genres. 

STEFFEN HOLLENWEGER, is a promising young  bassist from the  up and coming generation of new German jazz musicians. He studied at the Musikhochschule in Mannheim and is a much demanded musician involved in a great  variety of music projects. 

This group with its great variety of styles, proves that a group without a drummer can be rhythmically interesting and achieve an musical intensity that many internationally well-known groups would be envious of.
