Mads Tolling and Mads Men - Live Entertainment Concert at Williams Center for the Arts

Mads Tolling is a two-time Grammy Award Winner, and he is this year’s winner of DownBeat Critics Poll Rising Star Award for the violin. He is a former longtime member of Stanley Clarke’s Band and the Turtle Island Quartet.

Mads has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition and in the Washington Post, and he has played with Kenny Barron, Ramsey Lewis and Paquito D’Rivera. Besides being a world class performer, Mads is an in demand educator and composer. Mads was commissioned by conductor Michael Morgan and Oakland Symphony to write a violin concerto, which he premiered with the orchestra at the Paramount Theatre in 2015.

In January, 2017 Mads is releasing his next album, “Playing the 60s” with his quartet and guest vocalists Spencer Day, Kenny Washington, Kalil Wilson and bassist Stanley Clarke. It is a fun and exciting release that touches on the nostalgic as well as the contemporary. It includes timeless movie themes, popular TV classics, and celebrated songs ranging from “Mission Impossible”, “The Pink Panther” and “Meet The Flintstones” to “Georgia on My Mind” and “A taste of Honey”.

As a burgeoning young master growing up in Copenhagen, listening to a Miles Davis cassette introduced Mads to the 60s sounds of Jazz, Soul and early R&B. Inspired to explore his own creative voice, the result is an exhilarating and thrilling musical adventure, with Mads guiding us to places we didn’t know a violin could go.

Mads Tolling & The Mads Men will tour nationally around the time of the release. You can find out more about Mads Tolling and his Mads Men at madstolling.com and madstolling.com/mads-men/
