Calvin Lennig - Project E


For this album I realized my vision of creating music with some of my favorite musicians. Paul, Karl, Philipp and myself already played together in various settings and somehow we always had a great connection. So I decided to add Lars and Sebastian as more experienced colleagues that come from different musical spheres to add some tension and to provoke some new paths to discover. And I am very happy about the result.

I like to let the music speak for itself.
Thank you so much for listening, this album means a lot to me.

Calvin Lennig - TRANSITION Album Cover


Being a sideman bass player for already a lot of projects over the last few years my need grew to produce an own album in a process of controlling every aspect of the production. Being responsible for the whole production process, the mixing and the mastering, I found out a ton of new aspects of my artistic personality. I’m very happy to share this process with you in form of this record. I thank all my guest musicians, my family, friends and also my patrons who made it possible at all for me to produce this „Transition“. We’ll see where this will lead me next!


…And once again there’s, a jazz group of young musicians who want to convince the reader of their band description text that listening to their music is something quite special? Yes, VIBE does so, too!
VIBE are Leandro Irarragorri from Zurich, Bene Jäckle from Mannheim, Calvin Lennig and Jonas Kaltenbach from Cologne.
This band works musically and personally as a collective. As true sources of inspiration the band names the music of John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk.
Their debut album “Vibe live @ Mehrspur Zurich” has been released on the 12th of April 2019.

This album was mixed and mastered by Calvin Lennig.



The projects I play with are numerous and fluctuate constantly. To list them and keep them updated would be tedious, while not doing it justice. I´d rather let the music speak for itself. Here is an up to date selection of recordings of my work as bandleader and sideman.
