grooving jazz trombonist
Composer and jazz trombonist Nils Wogram is a visionary, ground-breaking bandleader. Born in Braunschweig in 1972, he started his training in classical music and jazz on the trombone when he was 15. Only one year later he was admitted to the Bundesjugendjazzorchester. From 1992 to 1994 he studied in New York City, and then graduated from the Musikhochschule Cologne with a soloist diploma. He composes profound, multi-layered pieces that underscore and expand the strengths of his co-musicians in his many and long-standing band projects, including Root 70, the Nostalgia Trio, and the Vertigo Trombone Quartet. In 2010, he founded his own label NWOG Records. In 2020, his first solo album "Bright Lights" was released. His latest chamber music formation, Muse, is expected to make its début in autumn 2021. Nils Wogram lives in Zurich and has been lecturing in jazz studies at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Lucerne since 2004.
