from 2007-2008 the skillful guitarist Martin Hanisch from Bremen cooperated with Alfred in the project »Hanisch & Hirsch«.
The songs are own compositions that are mostly based on the chord progressions of famous Jazz standards.
Besides the sound of Hanisch’s electrical guitar and Hirsch’s harmonica the sampled and rearranged beats of old funk records are an important element in the H&H tracks.
In 2008 the project ended due to Alfred’s settlement to another city.
