Bach on Electric Bass out now!
Heiko Jung studied Electric Bass at the Jazzdepartment of the Richard-Strauss-Conservatory in Munich. Since then a vast amount of concerts and tours with various musical projects led him to countries like the United States, China, Mexico, South Korea, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, Latvia, Belgium and Armenia. His musical versatility and wide stylistic range is displayed by long term collaborations with ensembles like the genre-defining Jazz-Metal-Band “Panzerballett”, Martin Grubingers` Percussion-Crossover-Project “The percussive Planet” and legendary german Jazz-Rock-Band “Klaus Doldingers` Passport”. Corresponding to this, the list of venues Heiko has performed to ranges from reknown concert halls (La Scala Milano, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg) and Jazzvenues (Jazztage Leverkusen, Dresdner Jazzfestival, The Baked Potato Los Angeles) to Rock- and Popfestivals like
the Wacken Open Air and the Eurovision Song Contest.
Heiko teaches Electric Bass at the “Berufsfachschule für Musik” in Munich
and is a frequent lecturer at workshops and masterclasses. Besides that Heiko is working on a solo bass repertoire focusing on the music of Johann Sebastian Bach arranged for electric bass.
