“Attila is one of my heroes” (Pat Metheny).

“ of the 10 most underrated jazz guitarists of all time” (JazzTimes).

"No other musician has given the German jazz scene this much soul - not in the sense of black, American soul, but in the sense of European romance - as the Hungarian Attila Zoller. (...) through his own sensitivity that has to do with the music of his homecountry Hungary." (Joachim Ernst Berendt in "A window of jazz", Fischer Publishing 1978, page 187)

Few Europeans have influenced the international jazz scene as impressive as the Hungarian-born guitarist Attila Zoller. Born on 13.06.1927 in Visegrad, he was four years old when he got his first music lessons. From 1948 to 1954 Zoller lived in Vienna and worked regularly in the local jazz scene. Then he moved to Germany, worked with Jutta Hipp, Albert and Emil Mangelsdorff, Oscar Pettiford, Kenny Clarke, But Shank, Bob Cooper and Lee Konitz.

In 1959 he moved to the United States, where he studied with Jim Hall and visited the Lenox School of Jazz with Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry. That is where Zoller first was exposed to freer jazz. 1960 Chico Hamilton took him into his band. Then he played on the international jazz scene as a sideman of Stan Getz, Benny Goodman, Herbie Mann, Herbie Hancock, Sonny Rollins and Ron Carter. His album "Beyond The Horizon", released in 1965, became a milestone between Cool and free jazz playing. This was followed by famous LPs like "Zoller Koller Solal" or "Zo-Ko-Ma" (1968).

Regularly Attila Zoller also appeared in Europe, especially in Germany, where he was awarded with the “Golden Bear” at the Berlin Film Festival for his lyrical soundtrack to Heinrich Böll`s "The Bread of Our Early Years", together with Joachim-Ernst Berendt (Director: Herbert Vesely, 1962, production: Hansjürgen Pohland). In 1966 he wrote the sensitive music for the film version of Günter Grass's novel "Cat and Mouse", directed by Hansjürgen Pohland, 1967 also for the crime film "Tamara", directed by Hansjürgen Pohland and based on a novel by Hansjörg Martin. The three films were produced by Hansjürgen Pohland, a pioneer of the New German Cinema and sole Oberhausen Manifesto signatory from Berlin.
