Till Brönner is one of the most talented mainstream trumpeters Germany has produced in the last decade. After his studies at the conservatory of Berlin he became a member of the Berlin RIAS Big band. On his debut Album Generations he performed with the renowned bass player Ray Brown and drummer Jeff Hamilton. But the parade of stars wasn’t over yet. In the years to come he played with Dave Brubeck, Monty Alexander and Tony Bennett. On the recent, Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Peter Gabriel) produced album Oceana, there are contributions by Madeleine Peyroux (also at North Sea Jazz 2006) and the French ‘super model’ Carla Bruni.
