Tutor of the JAZZ-Masterclass
This exciting avantgarde cellist expands the boundaries of the violoncello in his very own way to great, astounding effect.
He found an unmistakably specific style with his unique approach using different playing-techniques unusual and unheard of for his instrument.
These techniques ranging from guitar inspired to a groove orientated Bass playing encompassing Upright and Electric bass, combined with the tasteful use of electronics made him emerge into a multifaceted player in a number of highly regarded, successful and stylistically different bands and productions.
Brinkmann won several classical and jazz-concours.
Jörg Brinkmann has released over 20 records on various well known international music labels like ACT-Music, Jazzsick and Challenge Records.
His musical character is faithfully expressed in his own trio (JÖRG BRINKMANN TRIO) with pianist Jeroen van Vliet and drummer Dirk- Peter Kölsch, with whom he recorded the album Ha! for german label ACT- MUSIC.
He is part of the Markus Stockhausens Group.
In addition, he works with great musicians like Michael Schiefel (PLATYPUS TRIO- BMC RECORDS) , Claudio Puntin (TRIO DOLCE VITA) as well as Julian and Roman Wasserfuhr.
„All About Jazz“ says:
„He creates a multifaceted stylistic approach, comfortably assuming the role of bassist with the kind of groove that would be unexpected from a classically trained cellist, were it not for his extensive, genre-rich resumé. Represents the viewpoint that jazz tradition is but one aspect of contemporary improvised music.“
