Primary Instrument: Sax, tenor

Born: October 4, 1975    

Claude R. Werner originally from Chile, landed in Newcastle upon Tyne by a circuitous route that took in New York, Paris, Barcelona, and goodness knows where else- a visiting Danish rhythm section greeted him as an old friend. Learnt his craft on the front-line playing with world class musicians across Europe. Those who have come to expect a sometimes slightly psychotic post-bopper tenor saxophonist are beguiled by the warm expressiveness of his tone in his most recent work, Thoughts and Recollections. Listen to the music.

However, this is far from the case as repeated listenings have proved. The title of the album is apt - these are the original thoughts, recollections and compositions of a man who is not only a talented player but an equally compelling composer. ”Daydreaming” portrays exactly what the title says and, in places, reminded me a little of early Warne Marsh. ”Nostalgia in Jesmond Vale” - how could anyone from the north-east not be drawn to this even if it was written by a man from Chile?
