Eddie Jak Neumann

Born:

Eddie Neumann was born in communist Romania at a time when jazz was almost banned. He first came into contact with jazz when Dave Brubeck came to Moscow in 1987. 11 years later, he recorded the first live jazz CD ever to be published in Romania (Changes, 1998) along with the Jazz Unit band. The resulting sexted received the Jazz Album of the Year award from the Romanian Union of Composers in 2000 for their album From Now On. Eddie is the mastermind behind the revered Romanian nu-jazz band Blazzaj, for which he wrote music and lyrics. After a short stint in West London, where he played jazz, klezmer and world music with several bands and produced his own electronic music called Electric Vulcans, he relocated to Romania, where he continues touring and recording with various ensembles crossing the jazz and ethnic music realms.

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!
