Mourning Lutz Büchner​


Folks, I am really in shock from hearing news of the unexpected and very sad death of my good friend Lutz Büchner! I really didn’t want to say it on the internet after receiving the horrible news in communications with our mutual good friend and fellow musician / bandmate Heinz Lichius. This is so hard to get my head around and accept it but I know it’s true that Lutz suffered a fatal heart attack while on tour in Tokyo Japan with his beloved NDR-bigband with Peter Erskine on the band – I can see Lutz’ smile and hear his voice and music in my mind like it was yesterday – and we spoke and played together so many times. So now I see the news releases are already out on the news FEEDS from the NDR, Hamburger Abendblatt etc. and a few too-early mentions on the Facebook, so I know it’s time to write a few words for those of you who might not know of Lutz Büchner, as follows: As Joe Gallardo the great trombonist and long-time colleague of Lutz’ said in email to me last night: “As you well know, Lutz was first of all a great human being and secondly, he was a masterful player. Lutz was my brother. We will all miss him.” – The very first time I met Lutz was in 1995 on a rainy night in Hamburg Eimsbüttel at the Thursday night weekly jazz session in Jazzclub Birdland – I had heard him the week before and pushed my Hammond organ on the wheels through the rain to the club and got there real early, Hr. Reichert the owner opened up the club and I was telling Mr. Reichert I came the week before but didn’t get to play so “early bird gets the worm…and maybe I’ll get to play with Lutz Büchner!” – well we did it and by good luck my friend Joris Dudli the great drummer was there – it was magic from the first hit. That’s where it started, I was living in Hamburg to play music and write tunes – like so many musicians following in the footsteps of The Beatles, by invitation of my sponsor Knut Benzner journalist moderator on the NDR. From then on together with main man Heinz Lichius drums who I had met just before when Heinz came over to meet me one afternoon – Heinz had recommended to check out Lutz, one of the finest rising musicians on the Hamburg scene. We had a lot of great times together on the bandstand and off from that time on – we played in Hamburg and his hometown of Bremen – turned out to be that Lutz was a real life jazz angel who saved my life at least twice, one time involving bringing me to the hospital / krankenhaus and translating to me what they were about to do to me – we escaped out the side door and the doctor came to our gig that night! I met Lutz’ Mom and Dad beautiful people when they came to hear us play in Bremen at Studio club April 7, 1998 – and most recently our last gigs together with my favorite musicians Michael Leuschner, (Heinz Lichius of course) “Fiete” Ernst-Friedrich Fiete Felsch NDR horn section brothers along with Joe Berger guitar, probably best gig of my life – Lutz was so happy to have found his love with his wife Bettina and he was always crazy about his son Asmus and his step daughters by Bettina, the happiest I have ever seen him, he glowed in the dark he had that much joy! — Back in 2005 I had an idea, I said to my long-time girlfriend Jennifer: Lutz is one of the greatest saxophonists I ever heard, I want to feature him on a CD release, he could be making a great record every day! I couldn’t believe that he didn’t have any feature albums out at that point – so I discussed it with Knut Benzner and we all co-produced a recording session for this purpose in the famous Studio 1 at NDR, the NDR SESSIONS Projekt was born, with the addition of “Joe G” / Joe Gallardo on trombone and Heinz Lichius and myself, Rudolf Grosser at the controls big SSL console, we started playing in the morning and I played through the magic bass amp belonging to Lucas Lindholm – the boys took one long coffee break and other than that we recorded tunes all day long – I am so grateful that I’ll always have this recording date together with Lutz, of course later on Lutz came out with more records – but this one for me is my special keepsake that went down with the blessings of NDR with the help of Knut Benzner and Axel Dürr. So many stories I can tell you, but most importantly everybody loved Lutz, I know there are a lot of tears flowing now around Hamburg and Bremen, my heart goes out to Lutz’ Family, Friends and Musicians music brothers and sisters! The 2nd to the last time we played together, I hadn’t seen Lutz for a while and he told me about a real miracle of survival when he was driving on the autobahn with Bettina and the kinder all his happy Family in the car, I think there was ice on the road – a car slammed in to the back of his car demolishing the car, but Lutz’ horns were in the trunk – they all got crushed but it saved his Family! They were all shaken up but OK – the lucky star was shining over them, and even though Lutz is not with us physically anymore, his lucky star will always be shining – he was competely dedicated to the NDR-bigband family of musicians and his own Family – always a huge inspiration to me as a person and master musician, rest in peace my very special good friend Lutz Büchner – my deepest and most sincere condolences go out to Lutz’ Mom and Dad and Bettina and his son Asmus and step children by Bettina – all the folks who know and love Lutz,

sincerely, Jon Hammond​
