The exciting jazz trio with Carl Winther, Richard Andersson and Jeff “Tain” Watts will perform live at a number of concerts in the autumn 2024 in Europe. 

Get ready to experience an unforgettable night of jazz music when the new trio of Carl Winther, Richard Andersson and Jeff “Tain” Watts take the stage in a series of high-intensity concerts. With their impressive musicianship and unique blend of Danish and American jazz style, this trio is a must-see. 

The Danish pianist Carl Winther and the bassist Richard Andersson had collaborated for several years when they decided to invite the American drum phenomenon Jeff “Tain” Watts on a European tour in 2023. After this, the three musicians went into the studio and recorded the album WAW! (Hobby Horse Records, June 2024), where the energy and the trio’s special synergy were allowed to fully play out. 

Now the group returns with a series of concerts in the wake of the album release.

“The music develops all the time when the three of us play together. That’s why I’m really looking forward to seeing where the music takes us this time, and to taking the audience on the journey,” says Carl Winther. 

The trio’s music is a fascinating blend of modern jazz with influences from around the world, drawing on the members’ extensive musical experience. The result is a sound that reflects their virtuosity, spontaneity and pure love of music. 

Jeff “Tain” Watts is widely known in the jazz world as one of the most influential drummers of his generation. He has played with iconic jazz giants such as George Benson, Harry Connick Jr., McCoy Tyner and Kenny Garrett. He has released several acclaimed albums and won numerous awards, including three Grammy Awards for his work with the Branford Marsalis Quartet. 

Carl Winther is widely regarded as one of the most talented and innovative jazz pianists of his generation and has received great recognition both in Denmark and abroad for his music. He has worked with big profiles such as Jerry Bergonzi, Billy Hart, Adam Nussbaum and Till Brönner. 

Richard Andersson has gained great recognition for his work as a composer and bassist within modern jazz. As “one of the most interesting characters on the Danish jazz scene” (Gaffa), he has released several albums as bandmaster with Danish and international musicians such as Oskar Gudjonsson (IS), Rudi Mahall (DE), Kasper Tranberg (DK), Ra-Kalam Bob Moses (US), Tony Malaby (US) and Bill McHenry (US).
