German-born vibraphonist/pianist/composer/arranger Karl Berger is a six-time winner of the Downbeat Critics Poll as a jazz soloist and recipient of numerous Composition Awards (commissions by the NEA, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Rockefeller Foundation, European Radio and Television: WDR, NDR, SWF, Radio France, etc.). His recordings and - in many cases - duo performances with such legends as Don Cherry, Lee Konitz, John McLaughlin, Dave Brubeck, Dave Holland, Ed Blackwell, Ray Anderson, Pharoah Sanders, and James Blood Ulmer, will forever be cherished amongst the jazz community. Outside of jazz, he is also noted for his innovative arrangements for recordings by Jeff Buckley (Grace), Natalie Merchant (Ophelia), Better Than Ezra, The Cardigans, Jonatha Brooke, Buckethead, Bootsie Collins, The Swans, Sly + Robbie, and Angelique Kidjo. Berger is also the founder and director of the Creative Music Foundation, Inc.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
