Take Off Collective members Ole Mathisen (sax), Matthew Garrison (bass) and Marko Djordjevic (drums) became friends at Boston’s Berklee College of Music as the second millennium was winding down. Since then, they have built careers as bandleaders; sidemen to world renown notables as well as unique and innovative instrumentalist.
Their eclectic tastes, penchant for honest and unpremeditated improvisation and a thirty-year strong friendship brought them to a musical situation different from any other they have taken part in to date.
“Wielding a deceptively clean tone, Ole can deliver an extraordinary volley of music, ranging from minimalist statements to full-on rock guitar-styled shredding of notes, a thrilling approach matched by his remarkable, genre-defying compositions.” Hot House Jazz Guide
Marko’s life in music has been modeled after his first teacher Miroslav Karlovic. “Karlo” maintained an active performing career, practiced diligently to advance his art and selflessly shared his knowledge with aspiring musicians
