Biography

Born in Vienna in 1921, multi-saxophonist Hans Koller was a seminal figure in post-war European jazz. A prodigious player, he worked with Stan Kenton, Lee Konitz, formed a group with Oscar Pettiford and Kenny Clarke, and created one of the first fusion groups. Koller received numerous requests by American musicians to emigrate to the States, but decided to remain in Europe. His play and compositions, a combination of experimentation and an adherence to tradition, catapulted him to the forefront of the European scene.
