Danish-American tenor saxophonist and composer Christian Winther has been based in New Orleans since 1997. Having studied jazz and music composition at the University of New Orleans under Ellis Marsalis Jr. and Harold Battiste Jr, he has since established himself as a voice demanding attention on the jazz scene through his soulful sound and a style of composing that exudes an expressive melodious quality. 

Winther has toured the US and Europe as the leader of the Christian Winther Quartet and performed as a sideman with many New Orleans jazz groups. Some of the musicians Winther has performed and/or recorded with include: Ali Jackson, Vincent Gardner, Shannon Powell, Herlin Riley, Billy Drummond, Marcus Printup, Richard D. Johnson, Rodney Green, Reuben Rogers, and more.

Winther’s 2016 recording “Refuge In Sound” (SPM) earned him critical acclaim from national and international jazz publications and features a set of all original compositions by Christian and a cast including Allyn Johnson on piano, Reuben Rogers on bass, Mike Moreno on guitar, and Billy Williams Jr. on drums.
