Martin Lutz

Martin Lutz (b. 1974) is a versatile composer. So far his work has contained both classical and popular music. He has written works for numerous choirs in neoromantic style inspired by mostly nordic composers such as Niels La Cour, Bo Holten, Per Skriver and Javier Busto.

Furthermore he works as a jazzmusician, -composer and - arranger in a number of groups - for example in his own sixtet (Martin Lutz Group) or in duo/trio/quartet. All the mentioned ensembles play Lutz’ own compositions which show roots in american souljazz, african jazz (Martin Lutz has a close relationship to the african tone as a result of his childhood and youth in southern and eastern Africa) and the more lyrical nordic tone. During the last years he has released a number of albums as leader and sideman, besides a book for beginners and advanced students of rhythmic piano playing. His music has been played on local, national and international radio and television on numerous occasions and he has worked on several musical productions as composer and arranger.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
