Torsten Zwingenberger, D, Drums

Er gehört zu den wenigen Schlagzeugern, die Boogie Woogie Piano wirklich mit Drive versorgen können...

He is one of the few Drummers that can support Boogie Woogie Piano with the right drive...

The drummer TEASY/Torsten Zwingenberger is one of the busiest personalities on the German jazz scene. On his agenda are more than one hundred concerts per year, international tours and numerous projects as a bandleader and sideman. In his twenties he was already working with jazz legends such as Buddy Tate, Harry "Sweets" Edison and Joe Pass.

In addition, he developed a special technique of drumming called Drumming 5.1, for which he extends the classic drum kit by adding a wide variety of percussion instruments that can be played by all four limbs with artistic precision.

Torsten Zwingenberger first became known along with his brother Axel Zwingenberger and his “Torsten Zwingenberger Trio”, then through jazz heroes such as Buddy Tate and Harry "Sweets" Edison. With his band “Lyambiko”, Zwingenberger has caused quite a stir until 2006.

 

 


 

You occasionally find him in jazz clubs, on concert stages and festivals. His superior technique and musicianship allow him to implement any ideas on the spot using the drum kit. Great curiosity and passion push him toward new forms of expression and technical refinements. He likes implementing new sounds, in which he connects pld and new styles of jazz with blues, boogie woogie, rhythm and blues, swing, bebop, hard bob, Latin jazz, Afro and Cuban music and funky lounge jazz.

The music genre dearest to his heart remains jazz, and when working on his own albums and performances he is frequently joined by guitarist Patrick Farrant and clarinetist Thomas L' Etienne, with whom he established two formations, BERLIN 21 and NEW ORLEANS SHAKERS. In addition he is currently appearing alongside pianists such as Jan Luley, his brother Axel Zwingenberger and the two International Blues Challenge winners Georg Schroeter and Marc Breitfelder, just to mention a few.
