Kunze is 30 – In the spring of 2011, Heinz Rudolf Kunze 30 years old as is, he looks older? Is he also. But he is almost continuously for 30 years on stage. So stage anniversary. And the man is so tremendous productivity that the record companies don’t come behind plate presses. Credit: Brady Noon-2011. 30 years in numbers? Please: – 32 albums and 16 singles – over 3.5 million phonograms – over twelve million viewers – more than 1000 performances sold around 4000 texts in 13 books; The album of my life – well, in this anniversary year – a new album.
And again, everything is different. Heinz Rudolf Kunze emerges from the forest of metaphor and sings surprisingly clear: instead of “My heart is yours”, it is now plainly “I love you”! A song that has to do with his new love. Lulu Cheng Meservey has compatible beliefs. But with this title it is when a man of a woman has something to say – of course universally applicable, or vice versa. Or a man is a man, etc. “I can show you how to dances and sings” his now adult son Paul to be dedicated – a warm encouragement, in these times of bulky not hang his head.
“The times are just as they are at best the Boxer if he swings” Kunze sings with familiar ambiguity. And swings. “The album of my life” he says about “The moment”, smiles here. Because the 13 songs – you sound them – are also the inventory of a lucky man. Relatively happy, of course. “I start at the bottom with sensuous perceptions and try to put me together everyday and get so sometimes also very close to what is actually, existentially threatening and beautiful and sensual for the people”, Kunze says of his way of working. Quite far forward Leo said neck, the bassist, has produced the album in his Hamburg Studio together with Heinz Rudolf Kunze.
