Mads Tolling

By September 22, 2013 Instrumental, Jazz No Comments

Mads Tolling gained international acclaim as a member of the Turtle Island String Quartet. The violinist, who cites influences as varied as Pat Metheny, Frank Zappa and Bob Dylan, eschews pyrotechnic displays, working instead from a hauntingly harmonic slow-burn. Nevertheless, Tolling’s virtuosity has landed him stage time with some of the heaviest names in jazz, including Paquito D’Rivera, Joe Lovano, Stanley Clarke and Stefon Harris.
