Klaus Doldinger
As a saxophone player and the leader of Passport, Klaus Doldinger is undoubtedly one of the most prominent jazz musicians in Germany. Thanks to films such as Das BootThe NeverEnding Story, the title theme for Tatort and other successes, he also holds a position of a prominent composer of music for film and TV series.

He was born on the 12th of May 1936 in Berlin. At the young age of 11, he started music studies at the Robert Schumann Conservatory in Düsseldorf. Five years later – before graduating from his additional studies in sound directing and musicology in 1958 – he started his career as a Dixieland jazz musician with the Feetwarmers. At the age of 21, he released his first album – Jazz Made in Germany – which thanks to its impulses of bebop and soul jazz achieved some success outside Germany. With over 5000 live performances in fifty countries and 2000 published pieces, Klaus Doldinger is not only a member of the supervisory board of GEMA and a member of the Union of German Jazz Musicians, but also a laureate of many jazz awards and a laureate of two German Crosses of Merit for “significant and clearly heard impulses which he brought into the German cultural life” and for “being accepted by the international community as the German ambassador of music”.

The anniversary album titled Doldinger, released to commemorate the 80th birthday of the artist, was met with great enthusiasm of professional magazines. Spiegel Online called him a “figurehead of German jazz” and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung dubbed him “the ambassador of German-speaking countries”. According to Deutsche Welle, “his name symbolises the best kind of jazz”.
