The Red Counts just love the smooth Blue Note sounds of Rudy Van Gelder - their music has nothing to do with vampires, blood cells or Marxist ideologies.
They play original funky & cool Jazz in the style of 1960s artists like Horace Silver, Lee Morgan, Jimmy Smith, Grant Green and Donald Byrd.
The Red Counts are Robert Fowler - tenor saxophone, Gary Willcox - drums, Gunther Kurmayr - piano and Stefan ‘The Count’ Redtenbacher on bass.
For reasons unknown, Stefan has also taken on the task to write, mix and produce the music - he simply must love it!
Being perfect gentlemen the Counts also invite other Counts from around the world to occasionally join them for some jolly Jazz making - both live and on sound recordings.
