Lorenz Kellhuber

“One of the most interesting young voices in European jazz”, the music magazine Concerto wrote, enthusiastically. A “daredevil”, a “magician of the keys” he was called by Jazzthing. Tagesspiegel pointed out his “strong sense of contrasts”, the British Jazzwise Magazine acknowledged “an astonishing depth and maturity” and “a perfect timing”.

Lorenz Kellhuber is considered an extraordinary instrumentalist, composer and improviser. In the Summer of 2014, he became the first German musician to receive first place in the renowned Parmigiani Montreux Jazz Piano Solo Competition from Monty Alexander. In 2016, Lorenz was nominated for the Jazz ECHO as “Newcomer of the Year”. Having released four trio records, his first solo album, “Live at the Montreux Jazz Festival”, came out in October 2017.

His countless concerts took him through Europe, to the US and to South America. He played numerous festivals such as Montreux Jazz Festival, Jazz Festival Basel, Getxo Jazz Festival, Alto Adige Jazz Festival, Mar Del Plata Jazz Festival and Burghausen Jazz Week. Lorenz worked with musicians such as Lee Ritenour, Charles Lloyd, Bob Mintzer, Markus Stockhausen, Eric Harland, Al Porcino, T.S. Monk, Ed Partyka and Ack van Rooyen.

From the first note, he unfolds a unique soundscape to his audience, whether it be at his fully improvised solo concerts or as a bandleader. The merging of jazz with elements from classical music, blues, gospel and ambient rock make him an entirely contemporary artist. Combined with technical perfection and an impressive artistic maturity, there is no limit to his inventiveness.
