Combine a renowned, acclaimed, brilliant trumpeter with a Grammy-finalist brilliant piano player, and a richly experienced bassist and percussionist and you have: BM4!
‘This quartet is on to something quite marvelous: a hybrid interplay between jazz and classical music – even opera – that should please fans of both genres, and expose the separatists to the virtues of each form…delightful…’ -Ken Franckling for JAZZTIMES
‘..delightful… rich… delicious… dramatic… brilliant… Fans with open ears will be rewarded by hearing these outstanding performances.’ -Ken Dryden for AllMusicGuide
Classical music for Jazz fans, Jazz music for Classical lovers! Tasty Crossover Delight!…..Trumpeter Joe Burgstaller (Peabody Institute, formerly of Canadian Brass) and pianist Hector Martignon (Grammy Nominee, Latin Jazz 2009, 2011) team up for their second recording, an adventurous and approachable disc that organically combines Classical and Jazz in inventive re-imaginations. Joined by Percussionist John Ferrari (Naumburg Award Winner) and Hans Glawischnig (Chick Corea, Ray Baretto), the BM4 has simultaneously ignited the excitement of both Classical and Jazz fans alike. BM4’s first recording, Mozartís Blue Dreams, debuted directly onto the JazzRadio Charts and was featured on Classical stations all across the U.S.
