More articles about Michael Griener
„M.G.moved from Nürnberg to Berlin some years ago and is since then one of the most demanded drummers for all cases. Played with traditional heroes like Herb Ellis, radical players like Barry Guy, stars of the Berlin scene like Axel Dörner or sound explorers like Zeena Parkins.

His self-taught style merging flow and fragility is unique as well as his coolness.”
