Torben Waldorff: Afterburn

Read "Afterburn" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Waldorff wrote six of the tunes here, in addition to one each from composer/arranger Maria Schneider, drummer Jon Wikan and saxophonist Joel Miller.

Torben Waldorff: Afterburn

Read "Afterburn" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone


For his sophomore effort, Danish guitarist/composer Torben Waldorff unleashes a strong album which gives his listeners more of the same and then some.

But Waldorff ...

Torben Waldorff: Afterburn

Read "Afterburn" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Guitarist Torben Waldorff really knows how to put a band together. The first impression on hearing his previous effort, Brilliance (ArtistShare, 2007), was that his group had a great collective sound. There was a lot of fine soloing, to be sure--from saxophonist Donny McCaslin and Waldorff--but it was the group atmosphere, simmering and always a bit ...

Torben Waldorff: Afterburn

Read "Afterburn" reviewed by Mark F. Turner


Jazz guitarists are oft-times forgotten in this post-Metheny/post-Scofield era. But there are many rising stars such as Lage Lund , Miles Okazaki and Mike Moreno who are poised to carry the flame even farther.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
