Andy Scherrer

Andy Scherrer (* 1946 / Tenor Saxophone): One of Europe's leading tenor saxophone voices , Andy Scherrer has made a name for himself as a longtime member of the „Vienna Art Orchestra“ - besides working with heavyweights like Gary Burton, Abdullah Ibrahim, Cedar Walton and Mel Lewis. Approaching his 70th birthday next year, Scherrer looks back upon a fruitful career recording and playing live on the world's most prestigious stages. Yet, his big, round sound and his soulful style of improvisation are still very much in demand. His recent collaborations in a Trio with guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel and bassist Larry Grenadier, a Quartet with drummer Jorge Rossy (of the Brad Mehldau Trio) and pianist William Evans are ample proof of that fact. Besides his tremendous skills as saxophone player, Scherrer is also known for his sensitive piano playing, making him the first choice to accompany singers like Sandy Patton or Ann Malcolm. Andy Scherrer has been a featured member of „Peter's Playstation“ for the past two years.
