À propos de Jerry Granelli

The San Francisco drummer Jerry Granelli is one of the most respected drummers in the business. As early as the 60s, he played with Vince Guaraldi, (who is above all remembered for his soundtrack for the cult Charlie Brown comic series), before later collaborating with Charlie Haden in Denny Zeitlin’s trio, as well as Ralph Towner and Gary Peacock. Besides being Professor at the Berlin College of Arts, Granelli impresses audiences and critics alike in Europe and America with his own band UFB, which is made up of the young German guitarists Kai Brückner and Christian Kogel as well as bassist Andreas Walter. The band plays a strong, energetic mixture of blues, funk, rock and jazz improvisations. Conventions are taboo, allowing original compositions to be played alongside new interpretations of songs by Peter Gabriel, Prince, Ry Cooder and Bruce Hornsby. Granelli’s collaboration with vocalists such as the spoken word and performance artist Rinde Eckert is a further aspect of his work.
