Andreas Hertel studied jazz-piano with Achim Kaufmann in Mainz, Germany and visited workshops with Simon Nabatov and Kenny Werner, among others. Main projects are the Andreas Hertel Quintet, playing original compositions of Andreas, and the swing-jazz-trio “Tea for Three”, playing standards and featuring guests, e.g. Jens Bunge on harmonica. The jazz pianist has been giving concerts all over Germany in jazz-clubs, at festivals, and at openings and other events. As leader of the band “Composer's Voice”, he published two cd's with original compositions, which were broadcast in radio and tv. He composed music for several theatre plays. In 2009, three compositions of Andreas were printed in a new german jazz realbook.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
