Bassplayer Bernhard Meyer is living in Berlin since 2003 and became a major part of its young, exciting jazz scene over the last years. His unique playing and his remarkable sound on the semiacoustic E-Bass makes him an outstanding voice within the Jazzworld. His band „Melt Trio“ was acclaimed by the press for the recordings „Melt“, „Hymnolia“ & „Stroy“ and nominated for the EchoJazz three times.
Bernhard Meyer completed a master program for composition with Prof John Hollenbeck at the Jazz Institut Berlin and found as a result a way to deepen his individual compositional skills.
He played in projects like John Hollenbeck`s “DrumsBassBassBassDrums”, Kurt Rosenwinkel`s “E.Coli”, Eric Schäfer`s “The Shredzs”, Claudio Puntin`s “Sepiasonic” and is a long time band member of singer Lea W Frey.
2016 he recorded as a duo with John Hollenbeck and for Wanja Slavin`s „Lotus Eaters“ alongside with Nasheet Waits.
For the following year 2018 two new projects will be presented:
The joint quartet by the Meyer brothers with Jim Black & Wanja Slavin.
And „Murmuration“, the first band as sole leader, a quintet feat.
Claudio Puntin (Clarinette), Julius Heise (Vibraphon, Perc), Peter Meyer (Git) & Andi Haberl (Drums).
