About the album

For some years now, Danish pianist Rasmus Ehlers has brought the American tenor saxophonist George Garzone to Denmark for the Copenhagen Jazz Festival. With Ehlers at the piano, Jonas Westergaard on bass and Jakob Høyer on drums, enthusiastic audiences and reviewers alike have witnessed this quar- tet’s often quite extended “workouts” over what may be termed a combination of standards and Coltrane-related material. Garzone’s vital and highly original playing has always been inspirational for fellow saxophonists, but also for the ever-growing and loyal following who show up year after year at their sweaty, spellbinding concerts. In our part of the world, Garzone (b.1950) was one of the overlooked giants of jazz until the first of his now annual visits, 11 years ago.

Three of the selections on AUDACITY are standards: “Softly As In A Morning Sunrise” in a catchy Frank Tiberi arrangement, the Miles Davis classic “Solar”, and “Theme For Ernie” where Tiberi stretches out. Garzone contributes “Strollin’” and Tiberi brought “My Man” to the session. The remaining four tunes were composed by Rasmus Ehlers especially for this session with Garzone and Tiberi in mind.
