New German jazz hope: Vincent Meissner's debut is a remarkable statement by a still young individualist who knows the basic library and jumps from there to his own. Unbridled joy in playing complex forms and rhythms meet a lot of desire to experiment and a remarkable sense for unusual melodies that stick in the memory. The result is a big picture that invites you to dive into the details and follow the twists and turns. Sometimes wild and bustling, then again sparkling and concise, in any case very moving.
Vincent Meissner
Born in the 2000, pianist Vincent Meissner is considered one of the most promising emerging talents in the German jazz scene. Growing up in a village in Central Saxony, he discovered his instrument early and found jazz to be his passion, which would become his life goal. At the age of sixteen, he moved to Dresden to attend the State Gymnasium for Music, where he continued to fuel the fire of his passion with constant discoveries. His influences evolved from Oscar Peterson, Dave Brubeck, and Bud Powell to Paul Bley, Monk, Craig Taborn, Vijay Iyer, and German jazz pianists like Pablo Held, Achim Kaufmann, Joachim Kühn, and Michael Wollny. For Vincent Meissner, the journey was the destination. He remains a seeker and explorer, delving into contemporary piano music as well. Since 2019, he has been studying in Leipzig at the University of Music and Theatre with Michael Wollny, where he currently resides and works. In his young career, he has already received numerous accolades. In 2018, he won first place at "Jugend Jazzt Solo" and the first prize at the "Bechstein Piano Competition" in Berlin. With his trio, he was awarded the "Concert Prize of Jazzopen Stuttgart" and the "Promotion Prize of the German Jazz Union." In early 2020, his trio also received the first-ever "Central German Jazz Prize," and in September of that year, he secured first place at the "International Jazzhaus Piano Competition" in Freiburg. His debut album with his established trio, featuring Henri Reichmann on drums and Josef Ziemetz on bass, titled "Bewegtes Feld," was released by ACT in June 2021.
