TOYTOY - German Jazz you wouldn’t expect

This Hamburg Musicians Collective delve into a treasure-trove of global experience from the international playground. World-wide tours with acts such as Nils Landgren, Maria Joao, Chet Faker, Fünf Sterne Delux/Das Bo, Flo Mega, JRBB, Matthias Schriefl, Fiva, Urban Academy and Wootton’s Toystory indicate the players' eclectic cartography.Now they calibrate their instruments afresh for their own musical expedition. The parameters are the freedom of jazz, the variety of urban sub-cultures, boundless technique and incorrigible creativity.Specimen evidence includes their debut LP, on the roaming Hamburg Label JazzLab, 'The WATTWATT Session' and their forthcoming tour. Join TOYTOY's game, follow the journey.

The WATTWATT Session. Our debut album

Last June we went to the island Föhr in the North Sea to record an album. We finished everything in five days. The first single is out now!

Album out November 23rd

Nikolas Fabian Kammerer accompanied us in the studio to document what we were doing.

Together with Jazzhouse Hamburg we came up with the idea of taking albums that have influenced us over the years and putting an evening dedicated to those together.
