It was a pleasure to be part of the Jazz Comp Graz and I was really honored to get the 3. Preis with the Composition “PARIS” from the Jury composed by Michael Abene, John Hollenbeck and Bob Mintzer. It was also a pleaure to meet other young composers and share experiences and music!
We are happy to tell that on Sunday 7.9.2014 we played with the Mereneu Project in Fehring Hauptplatz in one of the biggest Jazz Festivals of Austria, the Most und Jazz.
In the programm some classics and 3 new pieces that will be recorded in our next CD in 2015. See you there and our new release is also available to be downloaded.
After recording a first CD with the “Mereneu Project” and wining the “Downbeat” Student Award 2014 “Best Small Jazz Combo” I had already composed new Big Band pieces. I called the the nonet and invited other great musicians and friends from the Graz scene to take part in this project. That is how the big band “Mega Mereneu Project” was created.
