Jeff Platz

Original composer, guitarist modern instrumental and improvised musician.

About Me

JEFF PLATZ (USA) Guitarist, composer, has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe. He has performed in various music festivals world wide such as New York city’s “What is Jazz” festival, the “Heidelberg jazz festival” in Heidelberg Germany, Amsterdam's” Crossing Borders” festival and the Munster International Jazz festival in Munster Germany. The Berlin based music journalist Wolf Kampmann writes, “Platz’s music is generous although never accidental. The secret of its uninhibited quality lies more in Platz’s playful use of the familiar where intuition, feeling, and memory are the most important navigational instruments”. Jeff also co manages the German based music label Skycap Records. In November of 2005 he organized the first U.S. based Skycap Music festival which featured recently recorded Skycap artists such as Joe Morris, Steve Lantner and Jim Hobbs. Platz’s latest quartet featuring New York City multi reed man Daniel Carter will be released on the Skycap label, spring of 2010. Recently Brilliant Corners, a Boston based jazz website interviewed Platz. Please visit: http://brilliantcornersabostonjazzblog.blogspot.com/2009/06/jeff-platz-weighs-in.html for more information ”Platz‘s mystic axe tones gradually madden into vapor -like labyrinths letting the subtleties unfold in sparse bubbling currents”. SIGNAL TO NOISE MAGAZINE "Platz's group was smoldering, on fire!" DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE "Platz makes a statement that at times zeros in on the incendiary heart of the free jazz avant garde, elegant, contemplative, and skronking!".
