Max Zenger


Max Zenger (Finland, 1988) is a saxophonist and woodwind specialist who plays in various groups as a leader and sideman. He is comfortable playing and writing music in a variety of settings.

Zenger’s style fuses elements from old and new jazz, influences of world music and adventurous improvisation. Zenger’s music has been described as “melodic”, “international”, and “at the top of the new generation in Finnish jazz”.
In 2017, Zenger was awarded Pori Jazz Festival’s Talent of the Year prize. He was as well chosen for Artist of the Year for Turku Jazz Festival in 2018

Max tries to travel as often as possible, playing in clubs and street corners while gathering experience and knowledge about life and different musical cultures.

Zenger has studied at the Sibelius Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki, and the Jazz-Institut-Berlin.
