Dave Blenkhorn with the David Torkanowsky Trio
What a fun time with the fellas! A new quartet with David Blenkhorn and David Torkanowsky
Dates: 21 – 26.6, 2019
It is a fabulous quartet that comes together for the first time in this form, ad hoc for JazzAscona. Dave Blenkhorn, well-known in Ascona, has not only performed alongside Cécile McLorin Salvant, Harry Allen, Evan Christopher or Lee Konitz, but is also an incredibly sensitive guitarist who brightens up swing with his ability to improvise.
He will be on stage with one of the Crescent City’s most eclectic and important pianists, David Torkanowsky. The son of a German orchestra director and a Spanish flamenco dancer, he founded the legendary The Meters, collaborating with artists such as Dr. John, Boney James, Dianne Reeves, Allen Toussaint, Regina Belle, Nat Adderley and the JB Horns, among others. Also on the stage: two young Scandinavian talents, bassist Victor Nyberg and drummer Andreas Svendson.
