Mark Alban Lotz

Capsule Biography:

 

German flutist, composer and band leader Mark Alban Lotz was born in Tübingen, Germany, 12 June 1963. He grew up in Germany, Thailand and Uganda, then studied ethnology, flute, jazz and classical music in Germany and the Netherlands and received tuition from Ellery Eskelin, Lew Tabakin, Dave Valentin, Mahanda Ken McIntyre and Bobby Watson in the US. At age 17 he started to play flute and formed his own „Albanism Quartet“ (1988-91).

In 1991 he began an association with Dutch bassist Tjitze Vogel which resulted in recordings (1994, CD GLM-Edition Collage EC 470-2 „T(w)o Do - Mostly Harmless“) and the multi-media video project „noisiVision“, incorporating the moving sculptures of Elseline van der Graaf (1995). Also in 1991 he became leader of „Lotz Of Music“ (1994, CD Laika LK94-054 „Puasong Daffriek“). In 1994 he teamed up with drummer and percussionist Michael Baird from Zambia (1997, CD Sharp Wood Productions SWP004 „On Remote Control), and appeared with „Utrecht DeepArtment“, a free jazz tentet led by Baird. He repeatedly recorded with Afro-Caribbean drummers in Havana, Cuba: „Yoruba-Ilú“, „Cuban Fishes Make Good Dishes“, „Lotz of Music Meets Batá Drums“ (1997, 2CD Via Records 9920122 „Le Coq Rouge“), „Lotz of Music in Havana (1998, CD Via Records 9920592 „Blues For Yemayá“).

His work as composer is supported by the Fonds voor de Scheppende Toonkunst; in 2001 he was commissioned to compose experimental string quartet music, some of which was premiered by the Zapp Stringquartet. During 2004 and 2005, in collaboration with director Eric de Vroedt, he realized the “Pendant la nuit” soapera as composer, actor and musician. In collaboration with actor Nel Lakompessy he contributed to the music theatre show “Magic Stories In Music” as a member of the Global Village Orchestra. In the field of classical music he performed Danisov’s “Concert for contra bass, flute and double orchestra” as the featured contra bass flutist with the Nederlandsch Fluitorchester.

In different settings he also experimented with DJs (such as Graham B, or Eric Cycle), VJs (e.g. Soundshadow), dancers (e.g. John Kayongo), recorded soundtracks for documentary films and did various studio work on flutes and bansuri..

Over the past years Mark performed at concerts and jazz festivals his tours as soloist or band leader were broadcast by radio and TV stations in the Netherlands, Germany, the US, Cuba, Turkey, France, Greece, Czechoslovakia, Russia, Moldavia, Ukraine, and Egypt. Sandwiched between Gianluigi Trovesi, Dave Douglas and Chico Freeman his performances with Lotz of Music were a highlight of the 2005 International SJU festival.

Equally at home in jazz, salsa, and improvised music as well as serious music, Mark is also heavily involved in world music and ethnic jazz of African, Indian, and Afro Cuban origin: He has performed and recorded with such as Najma Akhtar, the Conjunto Folklorico National de Cuba, Clavé y Guaganco, Amelia Pedroso, Miguel “Anga” Diaz, David Tronzo, Eddy Martínez, Martha Gallarraga, Denise Jannah, Sandip Battacharya, Lucumi, José Santiago, Nicky Marrero, Wolter Wiebos, Petar Ralchev (the Rumanian accordeonist), Molla Sylla, Michael Vatcher, Zuco 103, Sfeq 3000, Omar Ka, Ken Kutai, and many others.

He teaches flute, ensemble and improvisation in the Netherlands,. Since 2005 Mark Lotz regularly designs the CD layouts for the Maxanter record company.

He was the subject of various exclusive interviews, essays and reviews in magazines such as Global Rhythm (US), All About Jazz (US), Fly (UK), Straight No Chaser (UK), Latin Beat Magazine (US), as well as newspapers and jazz magazines the world over.

Review in Cadence, Oct-Dec 2009, 236

 

”Bite!” By Bruce Lindsay: “Jazz has brought many innovative and original approaches to the world of music, but an entire album inspired by fish could well be a first. Flautist Mark Alban Lotz's Bite! offers 19 tracks of fresh, entertaining and uplifting music inspired not just by fish, but by "a dutch view on fish," a combined video and music project. Bite! is a joyous work. The quartet's musicianship is consistently excellent and conveys a clear feeling that the players had fun during the recording. The sleeve notes and track titles also convey this sense of fun. Alan "Gunga" Purves makes use of a range of percussive instruments including the Brim Bram, an instrument of his own design based on a wooden frame with attached rubber bands, which is helpfully pictured on the cover. Tune titles name check the Clownfish, Squid, Royal Herring and Seahorse, among others. "Get Along with Mating Squids" blends Lotz's flute and Purves' percussion in a splendid evocation of squids mating: "The Bathyscaaf," in contrast, features Lysander Le Coultre's cello to beautiful effect while "Oops Swallowed" is a more free-form and rather disturbing piece.

Lotz makes particularly effective use of the bansuri flute, while Albert van Veenendaal's prepared piano helps create the underwater feel of tunes such as "Jellyfish Lullaby." At times Lotz's classical roots are more obvious than his jazz ones, but this helps to add variation and contrast. He has previously declared his intention to bridge the jazz and classical worlds and on much of this album he succeeds admirably. The absence of a standard drum kit or bass also helps Bite! to sound fresh and unusual, the fluidity of the bowed cello lending itself more readily to the intended atmosphere of the album. Nineteen tunes inspired by fish may not seem like a great idea for a jazz album, but Bite! is a beautifully performed, often tongue-in-cheek and always intriguing CD.  http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/article.php?id=33438
