b. 31 December 1935, Bucharest, Romania, d. 27 March 2010, Cologne, Germany. After playing guitar early in his career, much of Herbolzheimer’s subsequent playing was on trombone, although he is perhaps best known as a bandleader, composer, and arranger. Throughout the 60s Herbolzheimer was frequently to be found playing in orchestras in theatres and recording and broadcasting studios. He also led his own big band in which he used many European jazzmen including Dusko Goykovich, Palle Mikkelborg, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen and Alex Riel, and temporarily resident Americans such as Art Farmer and Herb Geller. In the 70s, he worked extensively in television and radio, played with Dizzy Gillespie and others, and won awards and was honoured in a number of ways, including being invited to contribute music for the 1972 Munich-based Olympic Games. Herbolzheimer’s playing and writing intriguingly mingled jazz and rock and, while not truly classifiable as jazz-rock, contained many of the more attractive and swinging elements of both forms. On March 27, 2010, Peter Herbolzheimer died in his hometown of Cologne, Germany, at 74 years of age.
