“A major talent...a monster tenor saxophonist as well as a prolific composer and accomplished arranger.” – Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes

"A consummate saxophonist, composer and arranger." – Zan Stewart, DownBeat

“Recorded at the conclusion of a two-week tour of Denmark, Norway, and Germany in January of 2016; U.S. tenor giant Walt Weiskopf has teamed up with three of Europe's finest and most sought-after jazz musicians; pianist Carl Winther, bassist Daniel Franck and drummer Anders Mogensen. The result of this collaboration is great energetic music. Each member of the quartet contributed original compositions to the set; rounded out with Mal Waldron's beautiful "Soul Eyes" and the modern jazz-classic "Bolivia" by the great Cedar Walton.
Weiskopf has been a member of the legendary Steely Dan since 2003. He started his career with the Buddy Rich band at the age of 21. In the years since, he has released 19 CD's featuring a stellar cast of the best contemporary jazz players. The Scandinavian musicians accompanying Weiskopf here have attracted world-wide attention with their talents.
With the seven tracks comprising this release, the Walt Weiskopf European Quartet showcase the confluence of three of Europe's most exciting rhythm section artists with one of the most accomplished and interesting tenor saxophone players from the other side of the pond!”
