Residing in San Francisco – Danish-born violinist Mads Tolling is making a career in music. Mads graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston. Soon after,  he was discovered by French Jazz violinist, Jean-Luc Ponty, who recommended him to join bassist Stanley Clarke’s band. This encounter led to eight years of international touring and recording with Clarke. Mads has performed with some of the biggest names in jazz.  He has won two Grammy Awards as part of the string group, Turtle Island Quartet.

Danish guitarist Jacob one of the premiere jazz guitarists in Europe, and many compare him to the great Django Reinhardt. Jacob was a member of Svend Asmussen’s quartet for the last 20 years of Svend’s life. Mads and Jacob connected in 2014, and the two of them have performed over one hundred concerts in Northern Europe.  They have released an album that will be available on this tour of the US and Canada: “Celebrating Svend Asmussen”                      

This program will feature music composed and played by the jazz violinists that inspired Mads in his musical pursuit. The set will include vibrant arrangements of jazz standards along with a few Danish folk songs.
