On June 11th 2013 Winther-Storm won the 12th Independent Music Award with the cd Spinnaker Category: Jazz Album Trance Formations" from the cd Patchwork won Third Place in the Jazz category at the 2010 International Songwriting Competition. Jury members were John Scofield, Terence Blanchard and McCoy Tyner:
The music is exceptionally beautiful and contemplative, at moments intense and rockish.The four musicians blend very well together and uniquely fill the spinnaker. Tor Hammerø October 2012

Helge Olsen Bergens Tidene Desember 2010: The quartet utilizes a modern jazz language for individual views, that blows you away and leave you behind with a big smile.

Patchwork is joy from the first second. It is both modern and anchored in tradition. .... Let's hope Winther Storm will make more albums. This is a recommendation. 19 of 20 ein Ubevlieger Ingo Andruschkewitsch -
