about

In 2012 the debut album of sambajazzfunk flutist Han Litz has been released on CD and in spring 2013 it has been released digitally as well. Epiphany is a fresh mix of jazz, Brazil, samba grooves, flute funk and modern dance. It showcases each of the musician’s singular sound and colours—as well as their ability to play for the greater good.

"These musical friends obviously had a great time making Litz’s dream come true while recording this album in a German farmhouse ‘in the middle of nowhere’. Soulful jazz and Brazilian samba form the basis. Litz is very happy with the results: ‘Musicianship is more than playing an instrument. It’s about being part of a strong and synergetic group of the right open-minded people. Together, our individual qualities form a whole.'

Monte La Rue (a.o. Jazzism/Music for Fashion)
"Epiphany is a massive achievement & big surprise from Holland's most versatile jazz flute player. Funky world music with an international twist."

Sjeng Stokkink (Jazzism review)
This must be a divine revelation". "The control and harmony that astray from this music is both touching and overwhelming, besides that Litz is a master on his instruments". "....impressive debut that would easily fit on an international label like Blue Note or Verve."

Kees Heus alias KC the Funkaholic (Paradiso, Supersonic Jazz)
“The compositions of Han Litz have a deep airiness over them with a lot of surprising and exciting directions and layers. A beautiful debut.”

Han Litz Group Amsterdam, The Netherlands

When the soulful samba jazz flutist and composer Han Litz formed his own group it was about bringing together some friends who would inspire him and vice versa. Yes, the emphasis is indeed on ‘Group’. Litz observes: ‘Musicianship is more than playing an instrument. It’s about being part of a synergetic group of the right openminded people. Together, our individual qualities form a whole.’ ... more

Track Name: Away Again (Lejos)
Away Again (Lejos).
Music: Han Litz / Lyrics: Orlando Mino

Verse 1:

Lejos, soy reflejo
de un espejo alla
cruzando el mar
lejos soy el eco
de los pasos que he de andar

Chorus:

como arana la distancia
va tejiendo
su Nostalgia
y me enreda el perfume
de la soledad, de la soledad

Piano solo

Verse 2:

Lejos, soy ausencia
soy un huco
en algun corazon
grises transparencias
que me tinen la voz

Repeat chorus

End vamp
