Dr. Hans Sturm has toured six continents, performing a wide range of music: tangos with trumpet and marimba in Brazil, symphonies in Austria, avant garde works in Japan, folk music in Morocco, and jazz standards in New Zealand. Hans has appeared on over fifty jazz and chamber music recordings. His most recent release, Voyage, Unaccompanied works of François Rabbath (2022), features seven previously unrecorded works by Rabbath. Among his recent releases are The Nebraska Project (2021) and Rose Fingered Dawn (2017) both featuring sets of original works he wrote for his wife, celebrated jazz vocalist Jackie Allen. Of his performance on My Favorite Color (2015), Chicago Jazz Magazine remarked, “Hans Sturm is a beast on the bass… he plays perfectly.” He is the producer of two award-winning François Rabbath DVDs that feature biomechanics animations and user-selectable camera angles. His biography of Rabbath, 75 Years on 4 Strings (2022), was written over a five-year period. Hans currently serves as the Hixson-Lied Professor of Double Bass and Jazz Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the Director of the Meadowlark Music Festival, and, for the second time, President of the International Society of Bassists.
