Marcus Klossek is one of the growing number of guitarists who perform Jazz
on a Fender Telecaster, the archetype of the electric guitar.
A class of musicians that consists of many extraordinary artists; from Jimmy Bryant to
Ed Bickert, Bill Frisell, Mike Stern, Jim Campilongo or Jakob Bro, just to name a few.
An established name within the Berlin jazz scene who knows how to get to the point
with his Electric Trio. A guitar, bass and drums; that’s all it takes to make the songs
of Marcus Klossek sound great!
His brand new album „Time Was Now“, the 8th release as a bandleader and the first one
for Double Moon/Challenge Records, is another proof of exceptional storytelling
composing skills which go far beyond the average guitar release.
Marcus Klossek has toured countless european clubs and festivals since his
music studies at the University of Arts in Amsterdam.
He also has been an instructor for guitar, ensembles and workshops worldwide
for many years.
Incidentally, his virtuoso guitar playing has made him one of the busiest
musicians with dozens of guest appearances on albums by bands and projects
of the German Jazz scene.
Really good stories don’t need to be flashy and loud in order to lodge themselves
firmly in our hearts.
“In Jazz there is a demand, that on and with the instruments stories should be told.
Marcus Klossek, the guitarist from Berlin, is someone who has internalized this.”
