Pre-order Mareike Wiening’s ‘Future Memories’ now

We’re launching the pre-order for Future Memories, the new album from drummer Mareike Wiening!

The record features eight of Mareike’s original compositions recorded by her longstanding band that includes saxophonist Rich Perry, pianist Glenn Zaleski, guitarist Alex Goodman, and bassist Johannes Felscher. Recorded in one day in the midst of an extensive tour, the album captures the live group energy and cohesion that only comes from playing together regularly. The music was captured in January 2020, just before the first pandemic lockdown, and the album’s title encapsulates Mareike’s feelings: the unexpected value of our future interweaves with various levels of past experiences, memories and the unknown. Balancing great compositions with soaring solo explorations, this is exciting, thoughtful, and engaging creative jazz.

See full album details below. The first single, out today, is entitled Northern Sail, and is inspired by summer sailing.
