“FRED GLESNES – PRESS RELEASE Fred Glesnes, hailing from Tromsø Norway, is a professional sax player, composer and arranger. His education includes Master of Music, Jazz Performance from Western Michigan University, and Tromsø University College Faculty of Art – Music Conservatory. Glesnes has earned domestic and international recognition, and has toured extensively in Scandinavia, Europe and the US. In addition to composing, arranging and conducting for big bands and orchestras, he’s worked with international greats such as Bob Mintzer, Randy Brecker, Chiwoniso and Nils Landgren. Nationally he’s worked with acclaimed artists such as Frode Alnæs, Anne Grethe Preus, SIlje Nergaard, Sondre Lerche, Ralph Myerz and the Jack Herren Band, Steinar Albrigtsen, and Odd René Andersen. He does a lot of performances for Norwegian national broadcast channels NRK and TV2. Glesnes recently released his second album with the Glesnes/Ytreberg Quartet, where fellow AMT endorser Mr. Randy Brecker appeared as a special guest on the album. Brecker has collaborated with Glesnes on other projects as well. Other recent projects include the Mandela Celebration 08’, where he was the musical director. Artists from all corners of the globe participated. The microphones of choice are the WI5 for alt – and tenor saxes, the TA2 for the soprano sax, and Z1 for the flute. He also uses the WI5C to make the TA2 and Z1 wireless. For Glesnes AMT was an easy choice: ‘AMT completely blew me away from the first time I tried them. The WI5, the TA2 and Z1 all reproduce the sound perfectly from my horns, and I can drive them hard with no feed back problems. The TA2 is also the perfect solution for my soprano sax since the double microphones blend the sound from the whole instrument. We’ve had five WI5’s on stage at the same time with no antenna distributor system, and they all worked without any problems. AMT works really well live and in the studio.’ Check out Fred at www.fredglesnes.no ” – FRED GLESNES
