EDITOR’S CHOICE: WINTHER-STORM
NOVEMBER 21 AT 21:00 CET
Like every month, Editor’s Choice presents a hand-picked favourite of Stingray DJAZZ's editor-in-chief Rokas Kučinskas. This month's choice fell on Winther-Storm - a collaborative group whose founders blend acoustic and electric sounds into a dynamic whole. Their inspiration comes from a wide spectrum of jazz developments from the last 50 years, with a few sidetracks into rock and contemporary classical music. Watch the premiere of Winther-Storm's 2019 concert from the Bimhuis in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on Stingray DJAZZ on Saturday, November 21 at 21:00 CET.
Winther-Storm - Bimhuis, Amsterdam
SATURDAY, November 21 AT 21:00 CET
Double bassist Thomas Winther Andersen and guitarist Håkon Storm have collaborated as Winther-Storm for more than half of their lives. Both men were born in Norway's capital Oslo, stepping into the spotlight in the band “Line Up” with the American saxophonist Jimmy Halperin. Given Halperin's fascination with the music of legendary jazz pianist and educator Lennie Tristano, it should come as no surprise that Winther and Storm's own compositions, too, are strongly influenced by Tristano's ingenious melodies and harmonies.
