New album "Patience" feat. Bob Sheppard out on Zennez Records Release 2nd of February 2018
'Patience' is an album that definitely stands out above the rest. The music on 'Patience' is solid, even extremely solid. No excesses can be found, its principles are modal, wrapped in top-notch craftsmanship. The details, the quest for depth of the four musicians, make 'Patience' an interesting album.
Its cover design and the ten artworks accompanying the tracks are likely to transform this CD into a must-have for true aficionados.

And my, oh my, what a CD.You can clearly hear that Doepke was in a good mood and fine form on the concert grand, featuring ten diverse originals.Doepke combined his musical creativity with drawing and painting, his second passion. In the CD sleeve, listeners will find a booklet containing appropriate illustrations for each track, thus turning 'Patience', as Germans phrase so eloquently, into a successful 'Gesamtkunstwerk'.
