Martin Schack/Jens Jefsen – Frokostjazz (DK)
Duo concert centred around the good melody
This duo, consisting of the gifted musicians Jens Jefsen and Martin Schack, was formed at a reception for Aarhus Theater in the spring of 2017.
The idea grew and the two met in studio to record famous songs and melodies from the pop and evergreen genres in a jazz duo format. As a result, the album Dust Shines was released, which ended up filling a gap in the jazz scene.
Jens Jefsen and Martin Schack perform with a mutual intuition and a feel for the moment. Leading melodies, solos and harmonies are spontaneously exchanged between the two musicians, which means that every concert is a new experience.
Look forward to good tunes delivered with great musical mastery by two performers who, according to Jazznyt, 'are filled to the brim with high spirits and swing'.
Pianist Martin Schack is a renowned Danish pianist who mainly plays jazz. Jens Jefsen, who has a recognisable, lyrical style, has performed with many American jazz greats during the 70s and 80s including Dexter Gordon, Ben Webster, Johnny Griffin, Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Eldridge, and Harry "Sweets" Edison.
Both musicians have released a ton of records as solo artists and as part of bands.
This concert is part of Lunch Jazz in the Bispejazz tent, where food and refreshments are served during the acts.
