Brooklyn based drummer, composer and bandleader Mareike Wiening has distinguished herself bringing “a planar modulating harmonic language and a propulsive drift” (New York Times) to the most compelling jazz music of today.
Ms. Wiening’s first album was described as “thoroughly modern, progressive jazz, Mareike Wiening’s debut album Crosswalk has many layers that unfold with each repeated hearing; she will most definitely become a leading part of the jazz scene in the years to come.” (All About Jazz)
Her new CD “Metropolis Paradise”, which was recorded as the last session at the legendary Systems Two Recording Studio, will be released in 2019.
Wiening has performed with artists throughout the United States, Europe and South America. She has appeared with John Zorn’s COBRA, German Jazz Youth Orchestra and multiple Off-Broadway Shows. Wiening has worked with renowned musicians such as Rich Perry, Stefon Harris, Dan Tepfer, Dayna Stephens, Fabian Almazan, Johannes Enders, Lutz Häfner, Florian Weber, Adrien Mears, among others.
