"Point of view"- 2007

"The Art of The Message"-  2009

"The Art of The Message"- 2009

Our tribute to the great Art Blakey and his Jazz Messengers. A sextet of beautiful german mainstream players celebrating hard swinging original tunes from the hardbop era.

"Kindred Spirits"- 2012

"Kindred Spirits"- 2012

My second album featuring my own compositions exclusively. Great sound and interplay. Personnel: Peter Protschka, trumpet; Rainer Böhm, piano/ fender rhodes, Christian Ramond, bass; Sebastian Merk, drums


Peter Protschka, Kindred Spirits:

Strong trumpet-led quartet session. Nice mix of post- and hard-bop, so it should appeal to both old schoolers and modern jazz fans alike. The compositions are certainly enjoyable, though it’s the quality musicianship and interplay that makes this a winning album.

"Twilight Jamboree"-  2015

"Twilight Jamboree"- 2015

My latest album featuring six original compostions and one beautiful standard. The band features a hard swinging european rhythm section and the amazing Rick Margitza (USA/Paris) on tenor saxophone. We recorded this one live at the legendary Bird´s Eye Jazzclub in one night. No overdubs. Enjoy!


Twilight Jamboree: You can't call a player born in 1977 a youngster anymore, but this post bop era cat who was born well after Miles made his turn in the 60s shows his love and appreciation of post bop so much so that Rick Margitza is part of his touring band, almost an insurance policy to make sure Miles smiles down on his trumpet playing. Not at all sounding like a fan that missed the boat, Protschka brings the daddio in fine style. On a live date that perfectly captures the smoky, late night club feel, it's no wonder that steam punk hipsters dig this as much as their cool grandparents. Killer stuff done just right, and then some.
