Deutscher Jazzpreis 2024

Alexander von Schlippenbach har blitt tildelt to priser under utdelingen av Deutscher Jazzpreis 2024: Årets pris for tangentinstrumenter, samt årets tildeling for et musikalsk livsverk. I forbindelse med tildelingene skriver juryen:

«Born on 07.04.1938 in Berlin. After completing high school, studied composition at the State Music University in Cologne. Pianist in the quintets of G. Hampel and M. Schoof. In 1966, the Globe Unity Orchestra performed at the Berlin Jazz Days at the Philharmonie. Participated in performances of jazz and improvisation parts in works by B.A. Zimmermann („Die Soldaten“ / „Requiem für einen jungen Dichter“) under Michael Gielen. From 1970, part of the „Schlippenbach Trio“ with Evan Parker and Paul Lovens. Collaboration in a duo with Sven Johansson. Tours organized by the Goethe Institute for the trio and Globe Unity Orchestra in the U.S.A., South America, Asia, Australia, and Europe. Collaboration with F.M.P. (Free Music Production). In 1989, founded the Berlin Contemporary Jazz Orchestra with the artistic goal of performing and recording new works by contemporary jazz composers (ECM, FMP, DiskUnion) and occasionally served as a lecturer at the University of the Arts Berlin. Involved in „Monks Casino“ (complete works of T. Monk) and piano duo work with Aki Takase.

Schlippenbach has significantly shaped the identity of jazz and improvisation, not only in Germany but also internationally. This is reflected in his decades-long collaboration with jazz institutions such as the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) or the Globe Unity Orchestra, among others. The latter, founded by Schlippenbach in 1966 to perform the work „Globe Unity“ commissioned by the Berliner Jazztage, notably influenced his reach and development as a musician».

Juryens spesialpris for 2024 ble tidelt The Creative Music Studio, etablert av bl.a. Karl Berger. Juryen skriver om tildelingen:

«This year’s Special Prize of the Jury goes to The Creative Music Studio, co-founded by Karl Berger. The career of Karl Berger, born in 1935 in Heidelberg, spans seven decades as a jazz pianist, vibraphonist, and educator. Since the 1960s, his influence on the international jazz scene has been continuous – although initially, his name meant something only to the inner circle of avant-gardists. Like few other German jazz musicians, he managed to make a lasting impact first in the Free Jazz scene and later in the World Music scene in the USA, from where his influence radiated back to Europe. However, he is not only a musician but also a scholar and mediator of musical tradition. The music center he founded, „The Creative Music Studio,“ which was considered a first-class hub for contemporary creative music in New York during the 1970s and 1980s, evolved alongside his music – and conversely helped the music to develop further. Even though he is no longer with us, his legacy continues».
