Statements Quintet is an outgrowth of the duo, "Statements," founded in 1989 by German Pianist Ursel Schlicht and guitarist Hans Tammen, and their later collaboration in 1996 with bassist Dominic Duval and percussionist Jay Rosen. The group became a quintet in 1997 with the addition of the brilliant German violinist, Christopher Irmer, who comes from the classical music scene. The unusual sounds created by the group are the result of virtuosic performance and wonderfully directed sketches. The group members have recorded and performed regularly in different contexts, sometimes crossing genres, as they often do with the quintet.
