HALPERIN NYBERG CONNECTION
RELEASE DATE: SEP 2, 2015
Saxophonist and composer Jimmy Halperin (US) has a unique place in the history of jazz as one of the main bearers of the legacy after pianist and composer Lennie Tristano. Tristano was an important teacher and mentor for Jimmy, in the same way he was for Warne Marsh and Lee Konitz. Jimmy was for several years during the 80s a member of Warne Marsh´s Quintet, with which he participates on the album "Back Home". Jimmy Halperin has taken the tradition into the 21st century, and the album "Psalm", recorded with pianist Sal Mosca, has inspired and made a big impact on many musicians in modern Jazz today.Pål Nyberg, guitarist and composer, has in recent years toured and worked with musicians from all corners of the world, and is involved in several international projects with members from New York, Berlin, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Barcelona. In May 2013 Nyberg's debut album "Culture of Peace” was released and received a warm welcome from critics and audiences alike.Together with the DMA (Danish Music Awards) winning Copenhagen drummer Andreas Fryland and the renowned Swedish bass player Robert Erlandsson they are now releasing the album "Snow Tiger". The repertoire is largely oriented toward what is usually called the ”Tristano School”, with lines by Lee Konitz, Warne Marsh and Lennie Tristano as well by Jimmy, based on some of the standard tunes that are among the easiest for an improviser to play creatively on, and the choice pays off beautifully. Don't miss this meeting between three exciting Scandinavian musicians and a true pioneer on the New York underground jazz scene!
