Biography

Born in Germany in 1974, Jörg started playing the piano at age of 8, and switched to the guitar at the age of 15. His first contact with jazz music was in Freiburg, Germany. However, the pivotal point in Jörg’s career was probably his first visit to New York. The city’s jazz scene made quite a strong impact on him that he knew that he had to return.

During his many trips to New York, he studied with jazz luminaries such as Peter Bernstein and Randy Johnston. Those experiences helped enhance Jörg’s sound, soul and sense of swing. Today he works as a leader or sideman in various groups.  He formed his own band and started recording his material with the JÖRG ENZ QUARTET.

Thrilled by the rich sound of the Hammond Organ he founded the JÖRG ENZ ORGANIC TRIO which personifies the flavor and power of New York Jazz.
