‘Improvisation as a Way of Life’ MASTER CLASS
with David Friedman

Listening to your inner voice. Trusting your intuition. Not regretting the past. Being in – and relishing – the moment… concepts we all strive to follow in life, as well as goals that guide jazz artists who magically conjure improvisations from thin air. Join master vibraphonist David Friedman as he illustrates, through words and his own remarkable music, improvisation as a way of life.


ABOUT THE ARTIST:

David Friedman, known for both a dazzling 4-mallet vibraphone technique and profound creativity, is regarded as one of the greatest vibraphonists of his generation and remains at the forefront of jazz as both a performer and educator.

Born in New York, but based in Berlin for over 30 years, David Friedman has been an esteemed and sought-after member of the European jazz scene for decades. Before moving to Berlin, he was at the centre of New York’s jazz and recording scene: after a 2-year stint in singer Tim Buckley’s band, he appeared on a slew of recordings on CTI and other labels throughout the 1970s and ’80s.

David Friedman has performed or recorded with Wayne Shorter, Horace Silver, Hubert Laws, Horacee Arnold, Joe Henderson, Johnny Griffin, Jane Ira Bloom, Ron Carter, Daniel Humair and John Scofield among other notable artists.
