About George Maurer

He has been called Minnesota’s premier jazz pianist and gained acclaim with the George Maurer Jazz Group and Trio as well as his collaborations with vocalists. A performer, a composer, a producer… George Maurer is all three. But if you asked him to trim his talents to a single word, he would simply say “collaborator”. Whether he’s composing a score for a movie or helping Eric Clapton with a few chords, George has a genius for working as part of a creative team and realizing a collective artistic vision.

George’s innate interest in many forms of music and his versatility as a performer have led him on many collaborative adventures.

The nine-piece George Maurer Jazz Group and rambunctious George Maurer Jazz Trio have wowed crowds, sold out venues and earned stellar reviews across Minnesota. They infuse their shows with humor, wit and musicianship, earning them a spot among the Midwest’s jazz elite.
