Swing that Boogie When Jo Schumacher and Torsten Zwingenberger get going, it doesn't take minutes and the whole hall is on the move. Jo Schumacher hits the keys of his piano at breakneck speed, while Torsten Zwingenberger sets the feverish rhythm on the drums.

Jo Schumacher

After seven years of classical piano lessons at the Bremen Conservatory, Jo Schumacher was introduced to blues and boogie-woogie at a concert by Axel Zwingenberger in the early 1980s. As a solo pianist and accompanist, he has since given numerous concerts, recorded CDs and played on cruises and at international festivals. For the German Protestant Church Congress in 2009, he and other enthusiasts invented the concept of a boogie-woogie service. Jo loves the beauty of sophisticated harmonies. But he is just as fond of grooving boogies that invite the audience to swing along and join in. Jo's repertoire includes original compositions typical of the genre as well as traditional classics, in which the variety of forms and expressions of the boogie-woogie always shine through.

Torsten Zwingenberger

Berlin-based drummer Torsten Zwingenberger is one of the busiest personalities on the German jazz scene. Over a hundred concerts a year, international tours and numerous projects as a bandleader and sideman are on his agenda. In addition, with "Drumming 5.1" he has developed a sensational drumming technique, for which he expands the classical drum set with a variety of percussion instruments and innovative drumming techniques. Torsten Zwingenberger prefers to show live and in direct contact with the audience how variably the percussion instruments can be used for different musical atmospheres.
