Special artist personalities expand the Jan Luley Trio to create extraordinary concert evenings for festivals and larger events.

Jan Luley Solo & Trio

Jan Luley, whom the press has dubbed a "wizard of the keys" (Schwäbische Zeitung) and a "titan on the steel strings of the grand piano" (FAZ), is one of the most versatile pianists of our time. His love of Creole music and piano styles from New Orleans is particularly infectious, enchanting and filling his audiences with positive energy. At each of his varied concerts, Jan Luley demonstrates that great art can simply be fun. His piano playing is like a gift, imbued with irrepressible energy, subtle wit and deep emotions.



The double bass is usually played by Paul G. Ulrich, who has worked as a sought-after accompanist on international tours with a large number of renowned artists. For many years he was the permanent bassist of the Paul Kuhn Trio. Tobias Schirmer on drums is a musician whose sensitivity, sound awareness and stylistic flexibility are second to none. He studied classical percussion and jazz drums and received several awards for his playing in his youth.

Good Morning Heartache - Ginea "Adi Wolf" & Jan Luley

recorded October 10th, 2023 Ginea "Adi" Wolf - vocals ( @BeautG ) Jan Luley - piano contact: LULEYMUSIC Records E-Mail: 🇺🇸 Ginea "Adi" Wolf is originally from Bermuda and came to Germany via London. The singer, songwriter, actress and painter, who lives in Hamburg, is "the voice to be heard," as the magazine "L'Afritude" wrote. Her voice masters all nuances between silky breathed fog and the eruption of a volcano. At the same time, the music flows out of her completely naturally, is emotionally profound to exuberantly cheerful and relaxed. Jan Luley has been one of the top European jazz pianists for many years. With his style, which is usually as melodic as it is groovy, he refers to the stylistic diversity in New Orleans between tradition and modernity and combines classical jazz with influences from world music, gospel and New Orleans rhythm'n'blues. His music is timeless, versatile, pianistically on the highest level and in addition a deep bow to the musical tradition from New Orleans in a refreshingly contemporary realization. 🇩🇪 Ginea "Adi" Wolf stammt ursprünglich aus Bermuda und ist über London nach Deutschland gekommen. Die Sängerin, Songwriterin, Schausspielerin und Malerin, die in Hamburg wohnt, ist „the voice to be heard“, wie das Magazin „L‘Afritude“ schrieb. Ihre Stimme beherrscht sämtliche Nuancen zwischen seidig hingehauchten Nebel und dem Ausbruch eines Vulkans. Dabei fließt die Musik vollkommen natürlich aus ihr heraus, ist emotional tiefgehend bis überschäumend fröhlich und locker. Jan Luley gehört seit vielen Jahren zur Spitze europäischer Jazz-Pianisten. Mit seinem meist ebenso melodischen wie groovigen Stil nimmt er Bezug auf die stilistische Vielfalt in New Orleans zwischen Tradition und Moderne und verbindet klassischen Jazz mit Einflüssen aus Weltmusik, Gospel und New Orleans Rhythm'n'Blues. Seine Musik ist zeitlos, vielseitig, pianistisch auf höchstem Niveau und dazu eine tiefe Verbeugung vor der musikalischen Tradition aus New Orleans in erfrischend zeitgemäßer Umsetzung.
