Bass player and composer Bernhard Meyer is living in Berlin since 2003 and became a major part of its young, exciting jazz scene over the last years. His unique playing on the semiacoustic E-Bass makes him a special voice within the Jazzworld. His band „Melt Trio“ was acclaimed by the press for the recordings „Melt“, „Hymnolia“ & „Stroy“ and nominated for the EchoJazz three times.
Bernhard completed a master program for composition with Drummer/Composer John Hollenbeck at the Jazz Institut Berlin.
He played in projects like John Hollenbeck`s “DrumsBassBassBassDrums”, Kurt Rosenwinkel`s “E.Coli`, Eric Schäfer`s “The Shredzs`, Claudio Puntin`s “Sepiasonic” and is a long time band member of singer Lea W Frey.
2016 he recorded as a duo with John Hollenbeck and for Wanja Slavin`s „Lotus Eaters” alongside with Nasheet Waits.
On 2/2/2018 two new projects released their debut albums on Traumton Records :
The joint quartet by the Meyer brothers with Jim Black & Wanja Slavin: “Other Animal”
And „Murmuration”, the first band as sole leader, a quintet feat.
Claudio Puntin (Clarinette), Julius Heise (Vibraphon, Perc), Peter Meyer (Git) & Andi Haberl (Drums).
“Unique, individual, absorbing and touching, spreading its wings like an albatross, so closely calling from a far distance.” (Wolf Kampmann)
„These melodies are of such compelling beauty, that they want to be heard again and again. And they are so catchy, that one believes to have known them for many years, exactly as if every sunrise emerged around these melodies.“ (Jazzthing)
