“Doepke, a romantic at heart like Bill Evans, has developed his own signature on the 88 keys with a clear touch and a sovereign technique” – Jazzpodium (DE)
‘Patience’ is Christian Doepke’s 3rd album and his 1st on ZenneZ Records.
Besides 10 new compositions ‘Patience’ contains 10 illustrations by Christian Doepke, who is a visual artist also.
When in 2011 Tinnitus and Hyperacusis forced him to reduce the number of live gigs, drawing helped Christian finding a new way to express himself.
