Stefan Pelzl ´s JUJU

Stefan Pelzl´s JUJU is one of Austria’s most constant and creative Jazz ensembles. Shortly after its foundation in 1988, the group won the “2nd Lower Austria Jazz Contest”. In these early days, JUJU was influenced by John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter and Yusef Lateef, but – once out of these footprints- was very soon able to create a very original style in composing and performing as well. Four albums were recorded and prove for an outstanding musical development.
Virtually retaining the same core of the group, numerous top-musicians could be engaged for specific projects, including Leo Wright, Idris Muhammad, Ingrid Jensen, Lorenz Raab, Franz Hautzinger, Thomas Gansch, Lorenz Raab, Alois Eberl, Ilse Riedler and others. The group plays only original compositions, mainly by the leader. JUJU have recorded four albums.

Stefan Pelzl´s JUJU performs as a quartet as well as a quintet with one additional horn player on trombone, tenor/sopranosax and or trumpet. The actual line-up is:

     Andy Bartosh: guitar                               Karl Sayer: double bass                     Klaus Goehr: drums                Stefan Pelzl: alto sax, flute

JazzMED                  www.jazzmed.at

was founded by Thomas Pfleger, Stefan Pelzl and Robert Schoenherr in 2007. This ensemble plays exclusively charity -concerts in favour of different organisations who provide free medical support to the poorest people all over the world. The three leaders,  Thomas Pfleger on  guitar, Stefan Pelzl on saxophone and flute, and Robert Schoenherr on piano are also responsable for the compositions and arrangements, mainly Latin – Jazz and „funky stuff“ . Wolfgang Schuller on bass, Werner Mras on drums and Stefanie Pitsch voc complete the actual line up.

JazzMED plays at least once in a year in Vienna´s top Jazzclub Porgy & Bess but performs also regularly in attractive locations elsewhere.

In 2019, JazzMED with Thomas Pfleger, Stefan Pelzl, Otto Lechner, Alex Meissl and Klaus Göhr was touring in India, playing at the „New Dehli International Jazz Festival“ as well in Varanasi and Patna. https://youtu.be/G5Fuvdpf1SY

Stefan Pelzl Quartet

Beside Stefan Pelzl on saxophone and flute, there are Michael Kneihs on piano, Stefan Thaler on bass and Werner Mras on drums. The group offers several different programs: „Poetry In Jazz“ contains only original compositions, „Great American Songbook“ is the more „commercial“ sample of well known „standards“, while „Tribute To Paul Desmond“ is a hommage to this great alto – player.

John Nittnaus Band

Stefan Pelzl is a member of the“ John Nittnaus Band“, together with John Nittnaus piano, Bernie Beibl guitar, Stefan Thaler bass and Andy Nittnaus drums.
