Love for the American jazz standards
VinDanmark welcomes one of the world's best saxophonists in the form of the amazing bebop saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi.
The iconic sax legend is on a two-day visit to VinDanmark. This evening focuses on some of Bergonzi's favorite American jazz standards from over the years.
There are few living saxophonists who can draw connections from John Coltrane to today's modern jazz scene as clearly as Jerry Bergonzi. Now 72 years old, he plays as powerfully as ever.
Bergonzi joined Dave Brubeck's Quartet nearly 50 years ago. Since then, he has played on all the world's biggest stages and released albums on renowned labels such as Blue Note and Atlantic Records.
He will be joined by his regular trio: Carl Winther, Johnny Åman, and Anders Mogensen. For more than a decade, this Nordic supergroup has toured internationally in collaboration with star soloists such as Dave Liebman, Tim Hagans, and George Garzone.
