Clemens Wenger

8. January 2018 Jazz live, Jazz Portrait

Clemens Wenger  is a piano and keyboard player from Vienna. He is working in various bands (e.g. Die Strottern and Jazzwerkstatt Wien) and published in 2015 the first CD under his name “Neapel“. Which is – in my opinion – brilliant, with strong melodies, intelligent use of electronics and a bunch of excellent co-musicians.
