BIOGRAPHY

Looking at the numerous projects in which Max Nagl is involved, one thing instantly becomes quite clear. This is a musician who wants to create his own freedom and for whom the words “fear of contact” are a foreign term. There is hardly any music genre in which the award-winning saxophonist and composer can not succeed impressively. Driven by almost irrepressible curiosity and by the great love of experimenting, this multifaceted jazz musician always rises up to new musical challenges.

Is it solely the instrumental virtuosity that distinguishes a musician? Or is there far more to the deal of positioning one self as an independent artist. Perhaps it requires the courage to leave old ways in order to get free and ready for new paths. Without doubt, Max Nagl belongs to a group of musicians who fight with vengeance against being categorized, against losing focus in repetitions, and who always take on new musical projects.
