Michael Jaeger

Kerouac ist das innovative und eigenständige Quartett um den Zürcher Tenorsaxophonisten Michael Jaeger, das sich seit seinem starken Debüt "Erfindungen" im 2006 (Unit Records) in der Schweiz und dem nahen Ausland einen Namen gemacht hat. Konsequent suchen die vier Schweizer Musiker seit einigen Jahren nach neuem und authentischem Jazz, in dessen Zentrum das improvisierende Kollektiv steht. Die Synergien entstehen zwischen den jungen und herausfordernden Musikern Michael Jaeger am Tenorsaxophon, Vincent Membrez am Piano und Luca Sisera am Kontrabass sowie dem renommierten Walliser Schlagzeuger Norbert Pfammatter

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.
