New Album to be released Spring 2016!

Two time Grammy nominee Till Brönner, is the most famous German Jazz musician and nation's biggest-selling jazz artist of all time! The trumpeter, flugelhornist and crooner, is - undisputed - one of the worlds leading jazz hornplayers.

 

With his mute trumpet and flugelhorn Till Brönner is updating traditional bebop sensibilities via elements of contemporary R&B and hip-hop. He is a master of his craft and of musical intimacy with soft, subtle, smooth tones reducing songs to their melodic essence. He plays cool but not subdued, virtuoso but not conceited, with sentiment but not with false emotionalism, always elegant. His trumpet playing is primarily inspired by the listening experiences of Freddie Hubbard,Dizzy Gillespie and Chet Baker. His most influential teachers were Bobby Shew and Malte Burba. Whatever subject he gets into always results in the highest quality and very often a small masterpiece for eternity.

He gets supremely good support from his international quartet of sidemen.

 

Born in Viersen, Germany, on May 6, 1971, Brönner discovered the music of Charlie Parker at 13, and later studied jazz trumpet at the Hochschule für Musik Köln. After just three semesters, he turned professional as a member of pianist Horst Jankowski's RIAS-Tanzorchester. In 1993 he cut his debut solo LP, Generations of Jazz, a traditional hard bop homage recorded with guests including bassist Ray Brown and drummer Jeff Hamilton. The album won a number of awards, among them the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik and the Preis der Deutschen Plattenindustrie. With his third release, 1996's German Songs, Brönner arranged classic German film themes for jazz quartet and classical orchestra, anticipating the creative detours of sessions to follow. 1998's Love heralded his first release for the venerable Verve imprint as well as his debut as a singer, and two years later he issued Chattin with Chet, a project that cemented his growing debt to the American cool jazz legend Chet Baker. After scoring the acclaimed 2001 featureJazz Seen, a documentary spotlighting the influential photographer William Claxton, Brönner resurfaced a year later with the ambitious Blue Eyed Soul, a collaboration with Japanese DJ Samon Kawamura and soul vocalist Mark Murphy that embraced electronica idioms to update the trumpeter's sound into the postmodern era. A concert tour with soul singer Joy Denelane followed, setting the stage for Brönner's biggest mainstream hit to date: 2004's That Summer, which reached number 16 on the German pop charts and made him the nation's biggest-selling jazz artist of all time. Two years later he resurfaced with the Larry Klein-produced Oceana, an all-star effort featuring contributions from singers spanning from Madeleine Peyroux to model Carla Bruni. His album „at the end of the day“ was releases in 2013. Throughout his career he has worked with numerous greats such as Dave Brubeck, James Moody, Monty Alexander, Aki Takase, Alan Bergman, Joachim Kühn, Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole, Tony Bennett, Ray Brown, Johnny Griffin, Bob Brookmeyer, Ernie Watts, Nils Landgren, Al Foster, Lou Bega, Mousse T, Take 6, Bootsy Collins, Pat Metheny, Yello, Hildegard Knef, Kyle Eastwood, Frank McComb, James Last, Al Di Meola, Carla Bruni, Mark Murphy, Nena, Madeleine Peyroux and many others.

 

Till Brönner has won numerous prizes and awards as the German Echo award, the German Record Critics' Prize as was nominated twice for Grammy. Besides his work as a musician and producer Till Brönner is very popular as a TV host and was in the Jury of German edition of X Factor. Till Brönner is also professor for Jazz, Pop and Rock at the Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber in Dresden/Germany. His latest album released in fall 2014 is called „the movie album“ which features Gregory Porter, Arturo Sandoval and Joy Denalane.
