Tom Berkmann

Tom Berkmann is a German musician who has been living in New York since 2012. He grew up in a small village in the beautiful Bavarian Alps, in the middle of Nowhere, a place so boring and quiet that the cows’ mooing and the churchbells were the only musical excitement in his early childhood. When he first heard his older sisters’ record collection – groups like Jimi Hendrix, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nirvana – Tom’s life had changed. He started growing his hair and picked up the guitar, started playing along with records and experimenting with sound and effects. Soon Tom got into Jazz Music and after playing jazz guitar for a while, he eventually found his true love as a young teenager: The Contrabass. Still being in high school Tom started studying Jazz Bass at the Richard-Strauss- Conservatory in Munich with Paulo Cardoso

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!
