Hello and a very warm welcome to my Indiegogo campaign!
My name is Andreas Buechel and I head the smooth jazz project ‘Sax O’Groove’.
Sax O’Groove released its first CD of the same name in 2013, featuring an array of guest artists. The self-distributed CD was successful, and the first pressing is now nearly sold out. I now have 11 complete songs recorded for the second CD. Entitled ‘Together’, it brought together five different producers: Nils Jiptner, Darren Rahn, Paul Weimar, John Odio and myself.
Each song features at least one guest musician from the top league of smooth jazz. I’m delighted to namecheck
Brian Culbertson (solo artist)
Rick Braun (solo artist)
Michael Lington (solo artist, Michael Bolton, Bobby Caldwell and others)
Ricky Lawson (Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, Yellowjackets and others)
Alex Al (Stevie Wonder, Sting, Janet Jackson, George Benson and others)
Nils (solo artist)
Darren Rahn (solo artist)
Shilts (solo artist, Down to the Bone, Rick Braun, Jeff Lorber, Paul Brown and Peter White and others)
Billy Steinway (Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole, Patti Austin, Jeffrey Osborne, Larry Carlton, The Jazz Crusaders, Bobby Caldwell, Gary Wright, Warren Hill, Ronnie Laws, Howard Hewett, Down to the Bone, Chaka Khan)
Marqueal Jordan (solo artist, Brian Culbertson Band and others)
AkusTicos (John Odio and Chepe Blanco)
Ricardo Ramirez (violinist with Costa Rica’s best-known band Editus)
Katja Rieckermann who shares the stage with Mr. Rod Stewart
and many more.
Making the CD was a unique experience – and I’m happy to say the results were outstanding.
My intricate arrangements for brass and strings sections were recorded with various trios and quartets of instruments to support the song textures.
Each song became a little pearl, crafted in the most diverse locations throughout the world:
Los Angeles, San Jose/Costa Rica, Denver, London and many more.
Now all I need is to raise the funds for the mastering, artwork and a big radio promotion to advertise the CD – and that’s exactly why I’ve started this Indiegogo campaign.
$ 10.000 is still needed for these final stages, and I hope to get there with your help.
I’ve created packages for the various levels of support you can commit to: digital downloads, CDs, social media shout-outs, thank-yous as a backer on the CD cover, be a part of the cd as a “Associate Producer” or “Executive Co-Producer”…

I’d like to thank you right now for your support and look forward to being able to send you the new Sax O’Groove CD. Stay happy and healthy – and I hope we meet in person some time.
