      I really appreciate your good initiative and although for me it was a slightly late event, it was still a wonderful experience to see the concert from Copenhagen. I am a big fan of Kenny Werner and CHANT is no exception, the free-flowing creativity that CHANT exudes is an inspiration and exactly the nourishment my soul needs! That being said, I must mention a little about the technical aspect of your streaming, I expect, of course, not to see a perfect cinematic experience in HD quality with everything that entails,but now that it is indeed the music that is the center of an experience of this character it will always strengthen the feeling that the sound is as much in balance as possible and here it was not as good an experience as it could have been if the piano and the saxophone had been in the same relative strengths as bass and drums, I'm sure this is something you are aware of and just wanted to mention it. But all in all it was a good experience, again thanks for the good initiative! Sincerely Simple

      Great performance. Kenny is of of the few musicians who can play freely and yet melodically. I loved the space and interplay in the group. The sound was pretty good too. The piano was a bit buried in the first half of the concert but got better towards the end. Overall the broadcast was good. It did stall or drop out about 5 times during the performance.

World-class pianist and composer, Kenny Werner, was recently awarded the 2010 Guggenheim Fellowship Award for his seminal work, No Beginning No End - a musical journey exploring tragedy and loss, death and transition, and the path from one lifetime to the next. Utilizing over 70 musicians, Kenny’s third album for Half Note Records is an expansive composition featuring Joe Lovano, Judy Silvano, Wind Ensemble, Choir and String Quartet. Kenny continues to play in a duo with Toots Thielemans, the legendary harmonica player. For twenty years he has played with and arranged for Broadway legend, Betty Buckley.

He also has had a nearly forty-year friendship and musical collaboration with Joe Lovano. They have recorded on a number of each other’s projects.

Kenny's groundbreaking publication on Improvisation, Effortless Mastery – Liberating the Master Musician Within, used his life experiences as a microscope into the artist’s mind to distill the emotional, spiritual, and psychological aspects of an artist's life. Werner touched off a revolution, inspiring musicians to do inner work on the mind, body, and soul - upgrading their musical experience from the mundane to the profound
