The trumpet and flugelhorn player Rüdiger Baldauf is probably one of the most versatile musicians in his field. As a lead trumpet player, he toured with George Duke, Ray Charles, Bob Brookmeyer, John Scofield, James Brown, Liza Minnelli, Dionne Warwick and more ...
With his roots firmly anchored in jazz, though always tending towards a flirt with other genres, the charismatic musician is for many a household name from his time with the "RTL Allstars" and the United Jazz & Rock Ensemble. That this flirtation developed into a permanent affair as a member of the “Heavy Tones”(the house band from Stefan Raab's TV Total) does not detract from his love for jazz and classical music. With his first solo album "Own Style" he invited the crème de la crème of brass players along, and together with stars like Ack van Rooyen, Till Brönner, Nils Landgren and Andy Haderer lit his very own musical firework. Quite incidentally, he also proved that "jazz" is as diverse and far-reaching as the people who play it!
