live recordings - music for large and small ensembles.
Below is a collection of live recordings by the Danish, Swedish and German national radios.
All the music was broadcast at the time, but is no longer accessible. Most of the music hasn't been released on albums or streaming services either. I am however very proud of it all, and I'm therefore making it available here for whomever might be interested.
- Danish Radio Big Band
In 2016 The Danish National Radio Big Band started up a row of portrait concerts, presenting prominent Danish jazz artists.
I was fortunate enough to be the first in this row, and November 25th the DR Big Band performed my music at a live concert in studio 4 in DR byen.
Featured soloists were, besides myself, Trinelise Væring - voc, Peter Fuglsang - clarinet, Mads La Cour - tp, Henrik Gunde - p, Per Gade - guit, Vincent Nilsson - tb, Gerard Precenser - tp, Søren Frost - dr and Aske Drasbæk - bcl.
Nicolai Bøgelund was the conductor.
All music and arrangements by yours truly.
The repertoire is a mix of arrangements of music from the repertoire of Offpiste Gurus (lyrics by Væring), of 5 Go Adventuring Again and of music written specifically for the DR Big Band and its soloists.
It was such a treat to work with this magnificent band.
The full concert broadcast also features a studio interview with me, talking about the music of the concert.
Before the concert, a written interview was publiched on the Danish Radio homepage: Read the interview (in Danish) here: Interview
