Waldorff has garnered international critical acclaim for his performances and five CDs as a leader. His most recent CD, American Rock Beauty (powered by ArtistShare and available exclusively at www.waldorff.com) is a varied and potent set of songs featuring Waldorff with tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin, bassist Matt Clohesy, and drummer Jon Wikan and pianist Jon Cowherd. Together they make what critic Doug Ramsey, writing about their previous CD Afterburn, calls “...expansive jazz of the kind that thrives in downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn and is spreading around the world. Waldorff, McCaslin and Yahel are leaders among the articulate standard bearers of the movement."

“American Rock Beauty" has earfeel as a fine Burgundy has mouthfeel. -Carlo Wolff, JAZZTIMES, May 2010.

Never overplaying, Waldorff seems to tease the maximum amount of emotion from every note he plays. - Dr. Matt Warnock, MODERN GUITARIST

“Music has a way of making everything beautiful," Waldorff says. “Music can express feelings that come from any range of positive or negative within a human. Even a very difficult emotional condition expressed through music will have a beauty to it."

Torben Waldorff's new “American Rock Beauty" is a compelling celebration of the power of music to transform the human experience into beauty.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
