MAX GREGER JR., MILAN PILAR und CHARLY ANTOLINI are known as outstanding musicians and independent personalities. They met in the 70s while playing in the orchestra of Max Greger Senior. It was there where the idea of ?CATCH UP? started. With their unique style the CATCH UP group became a creative element of the German jazz scene. Their first album ?Catch Up 1? was recorded in 1975 in the legendary Munich Studios, for the label Calig. Rare Groove addicts consider this album as a speciality. Two titles out of the album have been licensed by now: For a ?Compost - Glücklich? ? and for a ?Gilles Peterson - Talkin? Jazz? -Sampler. Max Greger jun., started his first piano lessons at the age of five years. He was a student at the Munich Musical Academy. He especially likes the classical masters and his idols are Oscar Peterson, Herbie Hancock und Mc Coy Tyner. Max Greger jun. is mainly busy as pianist, composer and arranger and he?s accompanying various musicians. He performs regularly in the Munich jazz scene and is conducting several big band orchestras. Milan Pilar, born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, studied at the Musical Academy and Conservatory of his home town. After moving to Germany he continued to study composition at the Cologne Academy of Music. His musical variability has been proven by playing the double bass in various symphony orchestras, the Bavarian State Opera and by playing the electric-bass as a jazz musician in great demand. As composer and arranger he conceived the idea to this album. Charly Antolini, is definetely a world-class drummer. He was born in Zurich, Switzerland and started his musical career at the local Musical Academy. He played with all the famous jazz musicians like Wolfgang Dauner, Barbara Dennerlein, Art Farmer, Dusko Goykovich, Albert Mangelsdorf, Nils Henning Örsted Pedersen, Baden Powell and many more. His album ?Knock Out? caused a sensation in 1979 and advanced to a cult release.
