When Bergonzi first came over to record with the Scandinavian trio no one expected a follow-up. However, this is not yet another European trio looking to shine in the light of an American superstar. Since the album release in 2011, the quartet has become a regular band, and critics and audiences have taken them to their hearts. They have been doing a lot of tours and concerts, playing festivals and clubs all over America, Europe, Asia and Africa and so far recorded 7 albums together. Jerry Bergonzi has only praise for the collaboration where two-way inspiration seems natural and the compositions are evenly divided between Winther and Bergonzi.
Jerry Bergonzi is one of the great saxophonists of our times. He has influenced the jazz scene for the past 35 years. He represents an expressionistic line of jazz rooted in hard bop, and he is an artist with a lot to say. His technique and focus are formidable – he is an architect of music, and he can build a solo chiseled out in stone. In the 1970’s his apartment in New York was a gathering and rehearsal place for his musical peers: Joe Lovano, Bob Berg, Michael Brecker, Victor Lewis, Steve Grossman and John Scofield. He is in demand all over the world. In the 1980’s he returned to Boston, where he holds a professorship at the New England Conservatory of Music. He has tutored many musicians who are currently leading artists on the jazz scene, and he is internationally renowned for his books on improvisation. Bergonzi has toured with many other international jazz artists including Mulgrew Miller, Kenny Barron, Miles Davis, Mike Stern, Adam Nussbaum, Dave Brubeck and Joey Calderazzo. The iconic saxophonist Michael Brecker described Bergonzi as simply “the best saxophonist in the world”.
Jerry Bergonzi will be 72 years old by March 2020, But his playing has never been better.
Carl Winther is the son of the world famous composer and trumpet player, Jens Winther. He started touring at an early age. The Award Winning vituoso, has been performing with the likes of Billy Hart, Bill Evans, Daniel Humiar, Adam Nussbaum, James Genus, Till Brönner, Markus Strickland, Dick Oats, Dejan Terzic, Eliel Lazo, to name some. His performance is breathtaking and virtuous. He has a fluent ability to improvise. Winther has been awarded for his precise and extravagant compositions and his amazing performance skills. In 2011 he won the 32nd Getxo Jazz Competition (Spain) and DPAs 1st Prize for best young Jazz Composer (Denmark).
Johnny Åman was born on February 10th, 1986, in a small city called Nykarleby on the west coast of Finland. 2005 he moved to Sweden to study music at Malmö Academy of Music, and in may 2010 he graduated with a masters degree. Today Johnny is one of the busiest bass players in Sweden. He has been recording and touring with among others Dave Liebman, Marcus Strickland, Tony Malaby, George Garzone, Phil Grenadier, Peter Epstein, Jukkis Uotila, Gerard Precenser, Tomas Franck, Jonas Holgersson, Marcelo Coelho, Mathias Landaeus, Daniel Fredriksson, Petter Wettre, Anders Bergcrantz, Martin Küchen, Hans Ulrik, Fredrik Kronkvist, and many more.
Since the early 1990’s Danish drummer Anders Mogensen (b.1969) has been in demand at home and abroad. He is an extremely dynamic drummer with several fine albums to show, refining his drumming performing with people like Bob Berg, David Liebman, George Garzone, Petter Wettre, Hans Ulrik, Tomas Franck, Rick Margitza, Gary Thomas – and Jerry Bergonzi. He is also a teacher and has written material on drumming and interplay. He heard Winther when he was called in as external examiner at the conservatory in 2006/07. He liked his energy and intensity, and their collaboration grew from there.
“The level of dynamics is at a constant peak, on the verge of exploding. But, as always when Bergonzi is involved, there is control... when Carl Winther’s full dynamic potential is directed toward melodic development, his playing is nothing less than a delight... This is great music, held together by drummer Anders Mogensen’s ability to play economically but insistently.”
