Bridges With Seamus Blake

Koncert

Bemærk: Koncerten er en siddekoncert.

Bridges With Seamus Blake er et moderne nordisk jazz-projekt. Et projekt, der har en vision om at bygge nye musikalske broer mellem Norge og andre egne af verden. Denne aften gæster gruppen Atlas i Aarhus.

 

Bandet består af den mesterlige saxofonist Seamus Blake (John Scofield, Antonio Sanchez, Mingus Big Band og vinder af Thelonius Monk-prisen) og fire skandinaviske jazzmusikere af fineste format: Den højt estimerede trompetist Hayden Powell og den prisvindende pianist Espen Berg - begge fra Norge. Den utrolige danske bassist Jesper Bodilsen (Enrico Rava, Stefano Bollani) og den svenske bandleder Anders Thorén på trommer. Anders har studeret på LA College of Music i Los Angeles. Hér blev han undervist af mestre som Peter Erskine, Marcus Gilmore, Dave Weckl, Ricky Lawson og Joe Porcaro. Derudover har han i de senere år optrådt live og indspillet med mange Grammy-vindende artister fra de nordiske lande.

Efter udgivelsen af det meget roste, selvbetitlede debutalbum "Bridges With Seamus Blake" i november 2016 tog bandet på en succesfuld europaturné i efteråret 2017. I 2018 stod den på adskillige koncerter - herunder også på diverse store festivaler. I 2019 udgav de deres andet album "Continuum", der lige som etteren fik flotte anmeldelser kloden rundt.
Anmeldercitater
"I have to say this quintet are performing some of the finest original acoustic jazz anywhere in the world at the moment......“Continuum” is an album of rare beauty and one that I will enjoy returning to time and time again. Undoubtedly one of the finest releases this year so far, it shines a clear, contemporary light on melodic, lyrically engaging and satisfying acoustic jazz at its very best." - Mike Gates, 5/5, UKVibe (UK).

"This is top drawer, acoustic jazz with an introspective and quietly joyful edge. This set has joined the band’s first release near the top of my playlist...There are driving pulses and rock-tinged feels, interspersed with stately marches, lightly skipping waltzes and impressionistic rubato. A constant thread is melodic invention and distilled and carefully sculpted themes.” - Mike Collins, London Jazz News (UK).

"..tripping fluidly between moods and tempos, but with a firm consistency to all this malleability...Seamus Blake joins the Bridges project once again for a bright display of artworks by way of follow-up to the original Bridges album, released in 2016” - Paddy Kehoe, 8/10, RTE (Ireland).

"The jazz quintet Bridges, which operates from Norway, is one of the best jazz groups of today. Formed around pianist extraordinaire Espen Berg, with the Danish / Norwegian rhythm section Jesper Bodilsen on bass and Anders Thorén on drums, with British trumpet player Hayden Powell and his celebrated countryman Seamus Blake on sax. On Continuum - their third album - the teamwork is almost telepathic." - Jazz Heaven, Album of the week, Eric van Domburg Scipio (Netherlands).

"..a ongoing conversation with great melodic weight. This is brilliant and soundly luxurious jazz music ..." - Audun Vinger / DN / D2 (Norway).
