Quiet Yesterday

Smooth jazz of the highest quality





Danish bassist Mads Vinding, Italian pianist Dado Moroni and Italian / Swedish drummer Niclas Campagnol join forces to deliver an exceptional, previously unreleased live performance in the form of the brand new album Quiet Yesterday on Storyville Records on November 17, 2023.


In 2018, these three musical virtuosos united to record a live performance at the iconic Jazzhus Montmartre in Copenhagen. This release features five standards and an original composition by Moroni titled Quiet Yesterday.


Their remarkable interplay showcases the power of jazz as a universal language and the profound connection that can be forged between artists who, despite not having worked together previously, communicate effortlessly on stage.


On this recording, Vinding, Moroni and Campagnol display a level of synergy that is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Their seamless collaboration evokes the impression of a well-seasoned trio, one that has honed their craft over several years. What makes this trio’s performance truly extraordinary is the fact that Moroni had never recorded with either Vinding or Campagnol prior to this, yet their musical chemistry is palpable, making the music sound effortless and natural. Throughout the recording, Vinding, Moroni and Campagnol communicate with an uncanny closeness, crafting music that is subtle, emotionally resonant, spontaneous and endlessly swinging.


Each member of the trio has a distinguished track record of elevating the music of others across a multitude of settings throughout their careers. Their shared commitment to pushing boundaries, avoiding clichés, and exploring new creative horizons is evident in their music. What’s most remarkable is that, despite spanning three different generations, their collective chemistry feels timeless and boundless.


Bassist Mads Vinding, born in 1948, is a prominent figure on the jazz scene. Over the years he has collaborated with an impressive roster of jazz greats, including Duke Jordan, Dexter Gordon, Enrico Pieranunzi, Toots Thielemans and many more. Pianist Dado Moroni, born in 1962, is one of Europe’s most loved pianists. He has played as sideman with just about everyone from Clark Terry to Freddie Hubbard, but today he is considered a modern European giant that among many projects plays duo with Kenny Barron and trio with Eddie Gomez and Joe LaBarbera. Drummer Niclas Campagnol, born in 1973, comes from a long musical lineage. His versatility and musicality makes him a sought after musician that has worked with Thomas Fonnesbæk, Didier Lockwood and Antonio Farao.


Quiet Yesterday is a testament to the enduring power of jazz and the boundless creativity that can emerge when three exceptional musicians come together to create music that transcends generations. But as always it is the singing bass a stunning virtuosity of Mads Vinding that shines through. This is jazz of the highest quality!
