Written by | News, Tours

Steely Dan saxophonist Walt Weiskopf will once again tour Europe in January with his European Quartet performing throughout Europe.

Commencing January the 17th, WeiskopfI will be teaming up with pianist Carl Winther, bassist Andreas Lang, and drummer Anders Mogensen, to commence a two-week tour in Malmö, Sweden, with other performances following throughout Denmark, Sweden, Germany, and France.

Walt Weiskopf began his New York career performing with the Buddy Rich Big Band in 1981 at the age of 21. Since then, he has made an impressive mark as both a leader and sideman with 20 critically-acclaimed CDs and countless sideman credits, including performing and recording with Buddy Rich, Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, Donald Fagen, Boz Scaggs and Michael McDonald.

Following the tour with his own quartet, Weiskoph will join Steely Dan for a short UK/Ireland Tour with Steve Winwood. Since the passing of co-founder Walter Becker, Steely Dan has continued to tour under the leadership of founding member Donald Fagen. Weiskopf said, “Although we truly miss Walter, I am sure he is pleased that we continue playing for and sharing this legendary music with the fans.”

Between the tours, Weiskopf will take his Quartet into the studio in Copenhagen to record their second album due for international release later in 2019.
