Joe Hertenstein

Born in Germany. In NY since Jan07. Freelance musician.

Joe Hertenstein's recent performances include concerts at the Philharmony in Cologne and the Moers Festival in Germany, the Congress Hall in Warsaw, Bush Hall London for BBC, the Opera House in Toronto, the World Trade Center in Dubai, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC, as well as Carnegie Hall, Roulette, Issue Project Room and The Stone in New York City.

In 2005 “All About Jazz NY” magazine praised his performance observing that “Joe Hertenstein's drums seem to be shaping the music from the bottom up”, and in 2011 “Hertenstein practices that loose time-keeping so prevalent in Europe that the ignorant use to claim that an entire continent can’t swing.” In November 2010 the Portuguese label Clean Feed Records released his remarkable debut album as a leader and composer “HNH” featuring Thomas Heberer (tp) and Pascal Niggenkemper (b). In 2009, the German government honored the further development of his trio “HNH” with a composition stipend to fund the recording of their next album “POLYLEMMA” which was released on the Canadian label Red Toucan in June 2011. ...

”This is Hertenstein's debut as a leader, and what his trio brings here is a pure delight, finding an interesting niche of incredibly rhythmic free improvisation: the music swings from beginning to end, but then with the improvisational and sonic freedom of modern music, never losing the implicit pulse and forward drive that underpins every note they play.” — Stef Gijssels, HNH 12/2010


”Enough can’t be said about the toe-tapping swing of Hertenstein and Niggenkemper – the drummer has the subtle complexity of an Ed Blackwell, able to patch infectious rhythms into the most abstract of group improvisations.” 
— Clifford Allen, HNH 1/2011

“Hertenstein practices that loose time-keeping so prevalent in Europe that the ignorant use to claim that an entire continent can’t swing.” 
— Andrey Henkin, ALLABOUTJAZZ-NEW YORK 1/2011

“Hertenstein's superb drums spin quickly and effortlessly on “One Ocean at a Time”, providing the glue that holds this complex, ever-shifting piece together. Even at just 46 minutes, this disc is completely successful, ultimately crafty and often surprsing in direction throughout.” - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery, 7/2011

“Part of NYC’s growing diaspora of German musicians, again drummer Joe Hertenstein shows his maturity as a performer and composer.” - Ken Waxman, TheNYCJazzRecord 10/2011

“Everyone plays creatively, but Hertensteinʼs drums are a standout.” - KZSU, Stanford Radio 90.1FM, 8/2011

“The bass clarinet and trumpet alignment casts a contrapuntal, yet festive alignment of tonal swashes and polyrhythmic story lines, nailed down by the leader's multidimensional accompaniment.” - Glenn Astarita, allaboutjazz.com 8/2011
