Max Neissendorfer

 

Together with the biggest names in jazz, including Pony Poindexter , Thad Jones, Hannibal Marvin Peterson, Archie Shepp , Franco Ambrosetti and Charly Antolini proved the Munich Max Neissendorfer his talent as a virtuoso pianist early. But the piano was him soon no longer suffice as a means of expression. And so he transferred his unerring sense of timing , phrasing and improvisation on another instrument : his voice . Thus Max Neissendorfer is now one of the most versatile jazz pianist and scat singers in Europe.
His different projects combine standards and new compositions from the mainstream of jazz and pop music - swinging, funky and bluesy flavored - with acrobatic scat vocals , expressive vocal arrangements and virtuoso piano playing ! Here Max Neissendorfer is inspired by the creative crossing of genre boundaries and collaborating with young artists and composers.
"My goal is the flair of the Sinatra era, the virtuoso vocal art of Bobby McFerrin and the pop productions of performances of an Elton John to join so that a wide audience with the passion for handmade , high quality music again the " Aha effect " can experience in live performance , as it was just at performances of the aforementioned immortal sizes of the music business and still is possible."
As chairman and professor of the New Jazz School Munich eV and assistant principal of the Vocational School of Music specializing in Rock / Pop / Jazz Munich are Neissendorfer on his long experience and his vibrant enthusiasm to the next generation.
