The German Jazz Award, which will take place tomorrow, April 27, 2022, at the Metropol Theater in Bremen, honors influential musician Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky for his life's work. Receiving the award on site will be his wife, singer Uschi Bruning Saxophonist, composer and author Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky will receive the lifetime achievement award for his outstanding work. "In 1957, Ernst-Ludwig 'Luten' Petrowsky began his career as a jazz musician as a member of Eberhard Weise's orchestra. Since then, he has set landmarks in the international jazz scene like no one else from the GDR. When people often talk about so-called GDR free jazz, it is unthinkable without him," explains Berlin journalist and member of the main jury, Ulf Drechsel. "An essential core of his musical activities since 1982 was also the work with his spouse, the singer Uschi Bruning. Together, the duo explored the sonic possibilities in the area of tension between classical jazz songs and free improvisation with a great deal of dedication, imagination and humor, and shaped many musical projects - from big band to blues band - as special guests. His playing on the saxophone - sometimes restrained and tender, sometimes expressive and shrill - remains indelibly rooted in the jazz canon of the last six decades. #jazznews #jazz #music #jazzmusic #deutscherjazzpreis #prizewinner #lifetimeachievement
