Christof Knoche

Saxophonist, bass clarinetist, and composer Christof Knoche was born in Bremen, Germany, in 1967. At about 16, he started playing the saxophone.

Following his graduation from high school and two years of obligatory German civil service, he pursued jazz saxophone studies at the Hocheschule für Musik and Theater in Hannover, Germany. Throughout his time there and his prior two years in civil service, Knoche found time to jam with the many talented musicians in the rich Hannover scene (including master trombonist and improviser Albert Mangelsdorff) and to play as a sideman on local world music festivals. He worked with the Tuvan throat singer Huun Huur Tur, Nahawa Doumbia, Egyptian master-violinist Abdu Daghir, and many others.
