Anna Kaluza studied jazz saxophone in Cologne with Frank Gratkowski, in Vienna with Klaus Dickbauer and in London with Jean Toussaint. As a student she joined Big Bands as the Freiburger Schüler Jazzorchester and the Landesjazzorchester Berlin. She was a member of Simon Rummel’s Fantasmofonika, which was awarded the jazz art prize NRW in 2004. With the German Band Futür she released the album “Kein Schnee” in 2007 (Jazzhausmusik)

She is a member of the Hanam Quintet (with Alison Blunt /vl, Niko Meinhold /p, Manuel Miethe /ss, Horst Nonnenmacher /b // 2 CDs released by AUT records), the Kaluza Quartett (with Christof Thewes /trb, Jan Roder /b and Kay Lübke /dr), the Frankfurt-based trio Baustelle No 5 (with Julian Keßler and Johannes Held), the Heisenberg Quintet (with Niko Meinhold /p, Hannes Buder /guit, Stephan Bleier /b, Rui Faustino /dr) and Ruth Schepers‘ little Big Band Rusira Mixtett. 

Anna and Jan first met in 2004 when they started playing together in different combinations as the Kaluza Quartet (with trombonist Christof Thewes and drummer Kay Lübke), trios with pianst Niko Meinhold or with drummer Michael Griener and various others. In 2020 they played their first duo concert on a boat in Berlin (Hosek Contemporary) and decided to continue with their work as duo. The same year they went to Christian Betz’ studio in Friedrichshain to record their music.
