Biography

Alexander von Schlippenbach (* 1938 in Berlin) is a German jazz pianist and composer.
Schlippenbach started to play piano from the age of 8 and went on to study composition at Cologne under Bernd Alois Zimmermann. While studying he started to play with Manfred Schoof. At the age of 28 he founded the Globe Unity Orchestra.
He produced various recordings and worked for German radio channels. He played with many essential players of the European free jazz community, most notably in the “Alexander von Schlippenbach Trio” with drummer Paul Lovens and saxophonist Evan Parker.

In 1999 he recorded the complete works of Thelonious Monk in a quintet with Rudi Mahall (bcl), Axel Doerner (tp), Jan Roder (db) and Uli Jenessen (dr).
