Torben Westergaard, What I Miss album cover

What I Miss

“A powerful debut release for Westergaard as an instrumentalist, orchestra leader, and composer”

Erik Wiedemann, Information, DK

Selected Reviews

“This record is definitely live jazz, a mixture of American and European influences with just enough of both lunacy and wisdom to have a good time”.

Batteur Magazine, France

“you are strongly invited to tour the musical universe of Torben Westergaard”.

Jazz In Time, Belgien

“Torben Westergaard is an electric bassist who displays the intelligence and sensitivity of an acoustic player”.

Cadence, USA

“Westergaard, a Dane, is more eclectic and unpredictable: his album veers from angular group improvisations to post- modern bebop to crazy concept pieces”.

Bassplayer, USA

“a convincing record that has not at all received the attention it deserves”.
