Drummer, composer and bandleader Mareike Wiening has been said to bring “a planar modulating harmonic language and a propulsive drift” (New York Times) to the world of contemporary jazz.

Based between Cologne and NYC, her current album “Metropolis Paradise” (released November 2019 on Greenleaf Music) documents the last official recording-session at the legendary Systems Two Recording Studios, NYC amidst goodbyes that kept flooding in from decades of clients as Wiening made her recording debut as Band-leader and Composer with a pianist who had had only the night before to learn her music. 

An old friend who I have always admired deeply, we catch up on her fascinating and inspiring story that is an apt display of how she went from the star student mentored by the likes of Stefon Harris finishing two Masters Degrees in two different continents simultaneously to the billiant, positive and cutting-edge force in the world of European Jazz.
