Mads Tolling with Dan Zemelman, piano!

• LIVE ONLINE - 5:00 pm


Mads Tolling, an internationally renowned violinist and composer, is a two-time Grammy Award-Winner and the 2016 DownBeat Critics Poll Rising Star Violinist. As a former nine-year member of both Turtle Island Quartet and Stanley Clarke’s band, Mads has spent most of his professional life touring internationally. Mads has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition,and his recordings have received rave reviews in Downbeat Magazine, Strings Magazine, The Washington Post and The San Francisco Chronicle. He has performed live with Chick Corea, Ramsey Lewis, Kenny Barron, Leo Kottke, Sergio & Odair Assad and Paquito D’Rivera.

Dan Zemelman possesses a lovely touch and fertile harmonic imagination, what stands out most on One Way Or Another is the probing lyricism that undergirds his group concept. He gives his formidable collaborators plenty of space, but the improvisation is always tightly bound to the melodic line. The resulting music is playful, tender, celebratory and consistently engaging, a rare project that compels a second, third and fourth spin.” –Andy Gilbert, Bay Area jazz critic
