New York, New York

Jochen is a jazz drumming German expat living in NYC. His deliberate avoidance of formal music education, albeit initially for budgetary reasons, provides a great lack of erudite nonsense in his writing. Besides his own groups, Jochen is known for his recent work with Fred Hersch, the Melissa Aldana trio, Marc Copland trio, the mid-2000 Kurt Rosenwinkel New Quartet and Nils Wogram's Root 70
