Saxophonist Michael Lington is a native of Denmark. It was in 1990 that Lington moved to Los Angeles, becoming a U.S. citizen in 2008. He got his musical start in Bobby Caldwell’s band; later he toured for three years with jazz and R&B legend Randy Crawford. The saxophonist, who has also performed numerous times for the Danish royal family (including the wedding reception of Crown Prince Frederik), has always been first-call for musical superstars. He’s opened arena shows for Barry Manilow and has already spent 18 months on tour with Michael Bolton. Lington has been a familiar face on contemporary jazz since his self titled major-label debut in 1997, and his tracks keep conquering the Billboard Contemporary Jazz charts. For his seventh CD ‘Pure’, he returns to the basics for an organic, soul-jazz project that recalls the glory days of contemporary jazz unburdened by pop constraints. The first single ‘Roadtrip’, which is produced and written by Lington and Brian Culbertson, is among most added and played songs at contemporary and smooth jazz radio and hit #3 at the Billboard Jazz Song Charts. His last album ‘Soul Appeal’ was released in 2014.

& New Year’s Allstar Jam-Session on Dec. 31, 2015 at midnight

Nick began learning guitar at age nine from his stepfather Edward, and started gigging professionally by 15. With a jazz style that is both urban and contemporary, he has blazed a trail to the top of the ranks of today’s stars. Combining all of the various influences of his music career from jazz to R&B to blues to rock, he has created an unmistakable sound and vibe that is instantly recognizable. With lightening fast speed and a distinctively silky sound, Nick takes the guitar to unexpected places every time he performs. His rich baritone vocals delight audiences unaccustomed to hearing such a skilled instrumentalist singing as well. And his natural comedic showmanship….well, he is one of a kind, and you have experience a Nick Colionne show for yourself. To do so, there are many occasions – in addition to the Smooth Jazz Festival Augsburg, of course: His tour schedule includes more than 100 live performances per year. For good reason, he succeeded Chris Botti as ‘International Instrumental Artist of the Year’ at the 2007 Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards. In total Nick released six albums and hit the Top Ten Billboard Contemporary Jazz charts many times. His last album ‘Influences’ was released in April 2014.
