The music is exceptionally beautiful and contemplative, at moments intense and rockish.The four musicians blend very well together and uniquely fill the spinnaker. www.side3.no 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 - www.musikansich.de

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
