Jochen Rueckert is a Jazz drummer, composer, band leader, and Oxford Comma-enthusiast born in Germany in 1975, currently residing in New York City.
Besides a dozen years of touring with his own quartet with Mark Turner, Lage Lund, and Matt Penman, Jochen is known for his work recent work in Melissa Aldana's and Fred Hersch's trios, the mid-2000 Kurt Rosenwinkel New Quartet, Nils Wogram's Root 70, 12 years of the Marc Copland trio, his electronic music programmed under the alias "Wolff Parkinson White", as well as his series of ebooks aptly titled "Read the Rueckert - travel observations and pictures of hotel rooms".
Jochen's deliberate avoidance of formal music education, albeit initially for budgetary reasons, combined with 30+ years working with some of the greatest musicians all over the world provides a great lack of erudite nonsense in his playing and writing.
He's celebrating his 6th album as a leader, titled "With Best Intentions"
