Beginning of 2011 the NILS GESSINGER BAND already was on tour! New titles of the overall & brandnew
CD "Pass-ion" had been presented as well as titles of previous CDs. This concept album is consisting of 10 new titles. They
all have been composed during a motorcycle tour through the European alps.
Every title holds the name of a famous mountain or pass of that region.
Major parts of the album have been produced in New York City with superb artists like Grammy-
Award-winner Will Lee on bass,
Rocky Bryant (Frank McComb, Average White Band) and
John "Tropes" Tropea
(Deodato, Steve Gadd).
Apart from the NYC production two titles have been produced in L.A. with
Tim Weston (guit) and
David "Woody" Woodford
(sax) of legendary Fusion-superband "Dr. Strut".
