About Klaus Doldinger
Klaus Doldinger (born 12 May 1936) is a German saxophonist, especially well known for jazz and as a composer of film music.
He was the recipient of 1997’s Bavarian Film Awards (Honorary Award).
Doldinger was born in Berlin, and entered a Düsseldorf conservatory in 1947, originally studying piano and then clarinet, graduating in 1957. In his student years,
Doldinger gained professional performing experience, starting in 1953 in the German Dixieland band The Feetwarmers, and recording with them in 1955. Later that year he founded Oscar’s Trio, modeled on Oscar Peterson‘s work.
During the 1960s he worked as a tenor saxophonist, working with visiting American jazz musicians and recording in his own right. Doldinger is perhaps best known for his film scores
to the acclaimed German U-boat film “Das Boot” (1981) and later “The NeverEnding Story” (1984). Doldinger’s recurring jazz project Passport, started in 1971 (then called “Klaus Doldinger´s Passport”), still enjoys huge success in Germany. In its influence it was sometimes called the European version of Weather Report.
