Manfred Schoof grew up perfecting his innovative jazz style, often practicing on either his jazz trumpet or his flugelhorn. He studied music in Kassel and Cologne. He is a founder of European free jazz and collaborated with Albert Mangelsdorff, Peter Brötzmann, Mal Waldron, and Irène Schweizer. He also began composing music for films as well as classical music, often for the Berlin Philharmonic. Schoof won various jazz prizes and is involved in the German musical rights association. He has been chairman of the Union Deutscher Jazzmusiker since 2007, and a professor at the Cologne Musikhochschule since 1990.
