Philip Czarnecki

Born:

Hey there! I'm Philip - I'm a guitarist, composer and educator living in Cologne (Germany). Although my guitar-playing and composing is highly jazz influenced, you probably won't argue to hear lots of other influences in my music. What Santana once said about Coltrane: "He´s playing life!" does definitely apply to me as well. My life has always been full with Rock, Funk, Blues, Soul and Hip Hop. So that's all me, I´d say... I started by playing Classical guitar though, then became a youth-student at the Conservatory of Hamburg (Germany), my hometown, first and went on to do my Bachelor and Master Degree in Jazz Guitar at the Conservatory of Amsterdam (The Netherlands).​ During the course of my career I won a bunch of prizes for both my guitar-playing and my (Bigband-) compositions and I was lucky to share the stage with fantastic musicians in numerous European countries and in South Africa and India. I am leading my trio PC ENERGETIC, just released a solo-guitar single and am working closely with the Neo-Soul singer Rakel Salazar and also do other projects & session work.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
