Jerome Kitzke

Jerome Kitzke was born in Milwaukee in 1955 and has lived in New York City since 1984. His music arises from the North American landscape and
celebrates vitality in its purest forms, thriving on the spirit of
driving jazz, Plains Indian song, and Beat Generation poetry, where
freedom and ritual converge. It is direct, dramatic, and visceral,
always with an ear to the sacred ground. Often political and always
topical, his music aims at revealing the heart of what it means to be
an American early in the Twenty First Century, especially as it
relates to how we live on this land and the way we came to live on it.
His music has been played around the world and can be found on the
Innova, Mode, and New World record labels, as well as on iTunes.
Current commissions include The Fire at 4 a.m. for the
American Composers Orchestra and Buffalo Nation (Bison
bison)
for Present Music. Mr. Kitzke’s music is published by
Peer Music in New York City and Hamburg.
