Georgianna Krieger

From: United States | Profile Views: 803

Georgianna Krieger began playing the saxophone at the age of 9 and just kept playing. She spent several formative years growing up in Denton Texas, a fabled jazz town, and attended the Arts Magnet High school at Booker T. Washington in Dallas. Her first musical memory is of Gerry Mulligan, so it’s not surprising that she plays the baritone saxophone in addition to alto and soprano. While studying sculpture at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Georgianna also earned a Bachelors Degree in Jazz and Commercial Music. If you asked her, Georgianna would tell you she sees a direct correlation between gestural drawing, her sculpture and jazz improvisation. “The media are quite different” she says, but the conceptual goal: “to explore a fleeting moment”, is the same. Today, Gergianna plays with the Resonance Jazz Ensemble (an octet featuring strings) and Zazen (a jazz quartet). She also gives individual saxophone lessons, in her Oakland, California studio, to students age nine and up.
