Jesper Zeuthen Trio + Quintet exploding live.

 

 Jesper Zeuthen is one of a kind on the Danish Jazz scene, and with his Trio feat. Adam Melbye (bas) and Thomas Præstegaard (dr) Zeuthen has released 2 impressive albums.


The trio is getting more and more attention around in the jazz world. Lately UK Jazz Radio has airplayed several of the tracks from both the debut and "Live", and New Yorker jazzblog  Jazz Wrap   Says:

"Zeuthen delivers some beautiful notes through what essentially feels like a classical chamber piece. It's dark and emotive but closes out the evening performance nicely and the audience repays the group in kind. "

The New Yorker Journal All About Jazz is eagerly excited asking " Has the soul of Albert Ayler transmigrated in to the sound of Jesper Zeuthen? Absolutely."

The Zeuthen trio is currently exploding into a quintet with Kasper Tranberg (tr) and Kristian Tangvik (tuba). It will be exciting to experience the trio and  quintet with 2 liveshows in Copenhagen soon.


 01 Feb. Jesper Zeuthen Quintet, Blå Records, Blågardsgade, Copenhagen.  Time around: 16 afternoon

16 Feb. Jesper Zeuthen Trio at ONE SPOT, Charlottenborg
