Born in Ravensburg, Germany, Rainer Böhm has earned himself a place at the very top of the ranks of German jazz pianists and has received prizes in uncountable numbers. He can be heard on more than 60 recordings, and as a professor of jazz piano he teaches at the Hochschule für Musik in Nuremberg and Mannheim. He is active in a wide variety of lineups, most recently performing solo at the 2019 Landesjazzfestival in Ravensburg.
Of course, Rainer Böhm has a classical background, he is particularly interested in the French composer Olivier Messiaen.With his style in mind, he wrote the music for his new sextet, in which he brings together top-class individualists - including Wanja Slavin and Jonas Burgwinkel. The resulting band sound is characterized by transparency and dynamics, expressivity and interaction.
Rainer Böhm's new sextet presents cutting-edge, emotional modern jazz.
