WALT WEISKOPF EUROPEAN QUARTET
New York, NY. – Saxophonist, composer, and author Walt Weiskopf continues to make an impressive mark as a
bandleader, sideman, and fifteen-year member of Steely Dan by hitting the international jazz circuit throughout Europe
and Scandinavia in early 2019.
Walt Weiskopf European Quartet Tour:
Teaming up with three of Europe's finest and most sought-after jazz musicians: pianist Carl Winther, bassist Andreas
Lang, and drummer Anders Mogensen, the Walt Weiskopf European Quartet (WWEQ) will commence a two-week
tour in Tallinn, Estonia, with other performances following throughout Denmark, Sweden, Germany, and France.
WWEQ musicians accompanying Weiskopf have attracted world-wide attention with their talents touring with jazz
greats Jerry Bergonzi, Tim Hagans, Adam Nussbaum, Jeff "Tain" Watts, Greg Hutchinson, and David Liebman.
At the conclusion of the tour, WWEQ will record their second album in Copenhagen where U.S. tenor giant Walt
Weiskopf will showcase the confluence of three of Europe's most exciting rhythm section artists.

“Weiskopf is a major talent...a monster tenor saxophonist, as well as a prolific composer and accomplished arranger.”
-- JazzTimes Magazine.

"Weiskopf is a consummate saxophonist, composer and arranger." -- DownBeat Magazine;

NILS WOGRAM NOSTALGIA
Originally formed as a bebop organ trio we developed our own sound over the last ten years. We use elements from the jazz and other music traditions and transform it into something new. From the past into the future thats what nostalgia is about.

Free Jazz ist einerseits ein historischer Begriff für freies Improvisationsspiel im Jazz seit den 1960er Jahren,

andererseits ist es ein bis heute ausstrahlendes Paradigma, das die Möglichkeit zur freien Entfaltung immer neuer Formen im Jazz und auch darüber hinaus bereithält.

Der Begriff selbst kann zu Missverständnissen führen, da eine Freiheit in Bezug auf die herkömmlichen Spielhaltungen des Jazz nur bedingt genutzt wird und es neben einer völligen Freiheit in der Form durchaus Improvisationen gibt, die auf Kompositionen und kompositionsähnlichen Absprachen über Strukturen beruhen.


Free jazz is an approach to jazz music that was first developed in the 1950s and 1960s as musicians attempted to alter, extend, or break down jazz convention, often by discarding fixed chord changes or tempos. Though the music of free jazz composers varied widely, a common feature was dissatisfaction with the limitations of bebop, hard bop, and modal jazz that had developed in the 1940s and 1950s. Often described as avant-garde, free jazz has also been described as an attempt to return jazz to its primitive, often religious, roots and emphasis on collective improvisation.
