Sunday, September 27th 2015, six musicians who had never worked together before met at the studio „Showcase Potsdam“ in order to cover „Purple Rain“ (Prince) in a live jam session.
– Claudia Lahmann, vocals
– Johannes Markow, vocals
– Jan Draheim, drums
– Ralf Meyer Wilmes, guitar
– Gerd Steinkamp, keys
– Gerhard Lutz, bass
Sound and video has been produced by the following members of the „Showcase Potsdam“ team:
– Jörg Zinke (sound and video engineer, camera)
– Johanna Bergmann (camera)
After the jam session we had the pleasure of being invited to dinner at „Clara Vere Restaurant, Berlin“
Enjoy the results,
and greetings from Berlin
PS: The song was announced to the musicians 3 evenings prior to the jam session. We arranged on the spot and recorded in one continuous live take. In order to show all the musicians together in one room (vocals were recorded in a separate recording room), however, we had to film additional footage to our own playback.
