Norbert Stein

Norbert Stein is a saxophonist and composer and established the Pata Music label to document his work with a variety of ensembles: Pata Messengers; Pata On The Cadillac; Pata, Horns & Drums; Pata Generators; Pata Masters; Pata Orchestra; Pata Horns; Pata Trio and Pata Blue Chip.

Beside performing in Europe, he went on numerous concert tours such as to Brazil, Africa, USA, Australia, Singapore and Indonesia. Several musical encounters were realized in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut. You will find these international music cooperations documented on various PATA CDs.

As a bandleader and composer, Norbert's approach is to create structures or atmospheres in which his colleagues can articulate their own ideas. His goal is to create music that constantly changes and evolves, and in which each performance is unique and presenting a brilliant balance between refined arrangements and plenty of freedom for spontaneity and interactivity.
