Manuel Schmiedel Quartet presented by the German Consulate General New York
Up-and-coming modernist Manuel Schmiedel is making his debut at the Blue Note NYC.
The German-born pianist has made a name for himself as one of Europe’s most sought after pianists, touring and recording with a wide array of artists including US jazz guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel. Since relocating to New York, he has kept a busy schedule performing at some of New York’s finest venues and clubs and started stepping into the spotlight as a leader of his own groups.
The European press has hailed Schmiedel’s “exceptional spectrum of expressiveness” and the “symphonic intensity” of his music. Saxophonist and Grammy winner Chris Potter describes him as “a truly formidable talent of originality, technical and rhythmic dexterity and compositional prowess.”
Manuel Schmiedel will be leading a stellar ensemble featuring Rick Rosato on bass, Adam Arruda on drums and saxophonist Dayna Stephens.« Back to Events
