Bladt/Jefsen Duo (DK)

To rutinerede Aarhus-musikere går på scenen sammen 



"Teknisk og charmerende" var overskriften på en anmeldelse i JazzNyt af et Michael Bladt-solo-album. Og det er lige, hvad det er.



I Aarhus er Michael Bladt en af den slags musikere, som andre musikere ser på med stor respekt. Det skyldes blandt andet pladsen i Klüvers Big Band (nu Aarhus Jazz Orchestra), hvor han ofte har demonstreret sine fremragende tekniske evner.



Han er en saxofonist, der kan en masse. F.eks. behersker han både tenor-, alt-, sopran- og barytonsax samt basklarinet, fløjte og altfløjte. I 2015 udgav han sit seneste soloalbum Next Step. I duoen med Jefsen vil vi mest opleve Michael Bladt som tenorsaxofonist.



Jens Jefsen er en efterspurgt bassist med jazzen som det centrale og et  let genkendeligt, lyrisk spil.



I 70'erne og 80'erne spillede han med mange amerikanske jazzkoryfæer, blandt andre Dexter Gordon, Charlie Chavers, Ben Webster, Slide Hampton, Johnny Griffin, Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Eldridge og Harry Sweets Edison. Desuden har Jens Jefsen gennem mere end 40 år spillet med mange toneangivende danske grupper og musikere. Han har udgivet ni soloalbum, senest A Secret Sigh (2016).




Two seasoned Aarhus musicians on stage together



'Technical and charming' was the headline of JazzNyt's review of a Michael Bladt solo album, which is an ample description.



In Aarhus, Michael Bladt is one of those musicians that other musicians regard with great respect. This is largely owed to his membership of Klüvers Big Band (now Aarhus Jazz Orchestra), where he has demonstrated great technical skill on many occasions.



He is a saxophonist of many talents. For instance, he plays tenor, alto, soprano, and baritone saxophone, as well as the bass clarinet, flute, and alto flute. In 2015, he released his latest solo album Next Step. Michael Bladt will mainly be playing the tenor saxophone in this duo with Jefsen.



Jens Jefsen is a coveted bass player who mainly plays jazz with an easily recognisable, lyrical style.



During the 70s and 80s, he played with many American jazz greats, including Dexter Gordon, Charlie Chavers, Ben Webster, Slide Hampton, Johnny Griffin, Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Eldridge, and Harry Sweets Edison. Additionally, Jens Jefsen has played with many trendsetting Danish bands and musicians for more than 40 years. He has released nine solo albums, most recently A Secret Sigh (2016).
