Classical music for Jazz fans, Jazz music for Classical lovers.
The New York City-based BM4 (BurgstallerMartignon4) performs an exciting and inventive hybrid of Classical and Jazz that has simultaneously ignited the excitement of fans of both genres. Their concerts straddle Jazz and Classical, inventively and organically combining them while remaining sophisticated and accessible.
BM4’s co-leaders are internationally renowned American TRUMPETER JOE BURGSTALLER (Soloist, Peabody Institute, ex-Canadian Brass & Meridian Arts Ensemble, Juno Nominated) and the Columbian-born PIANIST HECTOR MARTIGNON (Grammy Nominee for his own solo albums in 2009 and 2011; Tony & Oscar nominated; formerly with Ray Barretto; Tito Puente, Paul Simon, Paquito D’Rivera).
BM4 records for Summit Records (North America) and C.A.R.E. Music Group (Europe). Their debut recording Mozart’s Blue Dreams & Other Crossover was thrust in its very first week into the Top-50 JazzRadio Charts, and was featured on well over 100 Jazz and Classical stations. BM4’s follow-up CD Bach’s Secret Files and More Crossover Fantasies has continued that success, playing on again over 100 stations and charting for several months on the Roots Radio Charts(under Paul Simon, but right above the Beastie Boys).
