For more than 50 years Erich Kleinschuster, the native of Graz has not only characterized the history of jazz in Austria as a soloist, composer, arranger and bandleader, it already as a longtime director of the ORF entertainment music / production department as well as a music teacher, he has decisively influenced subsequent music genres. A literary trombone - as Andre Heller once described his friend Erich Kleinschuster.





But first, the jazz professor was actually a doctor. As a professional jazz musician, he decided not to make a decision until 1958 when he was invited to the "International Youth Band" at the "Newport Jazz Festival". There he met jazz greats such as Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley and Louis Armstrong, with whom he even shared the stage.
In 1966, he founded the Erich Kleinschuster Sextet - and soon gained international recognition, not to mention his popularity in Austria. In 1971, Kleinschuster founded the "ORF Big Band", which he was responsible for 10 years. In 1969, he founded the Jazzinstitut at the Vienna Conservatory, in 1985 the jazz department at the Carinthian Conservatory, and in 1981 he was full professor at the Graz University of Performing Arts.

When it comes to providing jazz with the right value, Erich Kleinschuster is always at the forefront. After all, there is the audience - this has proved once again its successful festival "Jazzsommer Graz", and if he wants to retire as its director now, that does not mean that he wants to be quieter.   (Ö1 Morgenjournal)

This text comes from the year 2005, i.e. the master trombonist celebrated his 80th birthday.

    1. NEW LINKS:

      I was not entirely happy, so this morning I worked again to improve the sound quality. I think it's a much better, more compact and fuller now. Listen, so judge yourself.
