After studying jazz and classical saxophone and composition in Cologne, Vienna and Graz (where he got his master’s degree), Andreas Marinello decided to dedicated himself to the orchestral jazz scene as a performer, composer, arranger and conductor.
Besides being chief conductor and artistic director of the Croatian Radio Jazz Orchestra, he was awarded 5 Porin awards (the “Croatian Grammy”) and shared the stage with some of the biggest stars in jazz, including Dee Dee Bridgewater, Branford Marsalis, Peter Erskine and Randy Brecker. He performed at the North Sea Jazz Festival, the Ankara Music Festival, the Prague Jazz Fest and the 2018 World Saxophone Congress, among other prestigious venues.
His discography as instrumentalist, conductor, composer and producer spans over twenty released albums, in genres as diverse as classical music, ethno, jazz and pop. His works are regularly performed by chamber groups, big bands and symphonic orchestras in Europe and overseas.
Based in Singapore since 2019, he has already made a mark on the local jazz and contemporary music scene and started teaching at the prestigious Yong Siew Toh Conservatory (National University of Singapore).
