Janis Görlich´s Kleiner Dicker Mönch

Janis Görlich – drums, balafon & glockenspiel
Jan Henrik Olsson- electric guitar
Jan Hauer- accordion
& special guest Jan Rohrbach -toy piano & glockenspiel




“Bei Nacht” is the debut album of Janis Görlich’s brand new Trio. Presented are compositions by the bandleader and his guitar player Henrik Olsson as well as a trés unique version of  Thelonious Monk’s “Round Midnight”.

By Nacht at times is ruled by a dark, psychedelic and often melancholic mood.  The tunes seek their influences not only from the world of mid 20th century jazz music but also from early 20th century classical as well as late 20th century pop music.
This being said it has to be clearly  stated that in the end (at least in this musical utopia) happiness wins.
On two tracks Bei Nacht features a special guest from the world of pop.

Kleiner dicker Mönch means “fat little monk”.
The sound of this Trio is a translation of the thoughts of a fat little monk into music.
The band mainly performs compositions by Janis Görlich and Henrik Olsson.
Kleiner Dicker Mönch may be regarded as Bummelzug Explosion´s smaller darker brother.
