A SIDEMAN`S JOURNEY tells the story of how well-known Sideman Klaus Voormann retraces the footsteps of his musical biography back to where everything began.
Two-time Grammy winner Klaus Voormann has not only left his mark on musical history as a bass player, but also set some milestones as a graphic designer.
His name conjures up revolutionary moments in pop history, in the music world as well as in the cover-artwork scene.
“A Sideman’s Journey” is the outcome of seven studio sessions in London, Memphis, Hamburg, Los Angeles and Munich together with best of international session-musicians and many stars:
Paul McCartney - Ringo Starr - Yusuf aka Cat Stevens - Dr. John - Jim Keltner - Albert Lee Van Dyke Parks - Joe Walsh (The Eagles) - Max Buskohl – Bonnie Bramlett and many others.
The bonus DVD “Making of a Sideman’s Journey” carries the viewer into the centre of the action. This is not a staged production. This DVD is a powerful and passionate documentary showing how this audio-visual work of art came into being. It's really great to see Paul react on Klaus' remark to stretch the solo in "I'm in love again" into double length!
Some of the proceeds will go to “Water is Life – Lakota Environment and Health Project”, a charity project in aid of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
In 1999 Paul McCartney helped launch Voormann’s non-profit organization Lakota Village Fund (LVF) in the German TV show “Wetten Dass”.
For over nine years Christina Voormann supervises all LVF projects together with board members in collaboration with officials and members of the Oglala Lakota Tribe. See our "interviews" section for a recent interview we did with Klaus & Christina about this release.
