Ternion Quartet

Ternion Quartet is fronted by two amazing artists, alto saxophonist Silke Eberhard (risingstar, DownBeat Magazine 2015 & 2017), and trombonist Geoffroy De Masure (professor at The Jazz Institute of Berlin), and is brilliantly supported, buoyed and propelled by Ms. Iversen and long-time friend and colleague from NYC, German-born drummer Roland Schneider. 

Ternion Quartet’s sophomore album, Invincible Nimbus (May 10, 2019, but available for pre-order now), which showcases an ensemble of highly-creative, accomplished artists utterly in tune and musically enamored with one another, stretching out their seemingly inexhaustible imaginations, is about selflessness and being open to dialogue.

Their debut album ’Ternion Quartet’ (April 2017) was on the long list of Preis der Deutschen Schallplatten Kritik (Long List 3/2017), and on the list of 10 best jazz releases of 2017 by Kjeld Frandsen, Berlingske, DK. 

The press on Ternion Quartet:

„Thoroughly compelling and wholly rewarding material.“ - Downbeat Magazine, Yoshi Kato 

“…more playfull and less controlled than any of her previous ensembles, reveling in the hopscotch jousts and tonal contrasts between alto saxophonist Silke Eberhard and Geoffroy De Masure on tenor and bass trombones. The spongy fills from drummer Roland Schneider and Iversen’s steady, stentorian basslines provide the right amount of caulk and spacing.”   Editor’s Pick  -  JazzTimes, Britt Robson
 
"The music is virtuosic and engaging, demanding attention from the listener. Especially exciting are the musical dialogues between the trombone and the alto saxophone; as they engage in discussion, 'fights'  and then come together again. Also the solos from all the musicians are from the top shelf".  ****** stars (=phenomenal) - HuGe, Er-em-online.de
 
”We are far away from nostalgia; everything is unconditionally here and now. The inspiring compositions act as springboard for the comprehensive and surprising improvisations of the musicians.”  ***** stars (5/6) -  Kjeld Frandsen, Berlingske (DK)
