Scandinavian Big Band Nights – Aarhus Jazz Orchestra feat. Mads Mathias & Mimi Terris (DK/SE)
A tribute to Danish and Swedish jazz classics spiced with newer compositions
For the last three years, Aarhus Jazz Orchestra has travelled around the world with Brazilian, flamenco, and South African big band music at the evening concerts at Ridehuset Swings.
The concerts have been about the musical encounter between different cultures and critics have been blown away, dubbing Ridehuset Swings 'the epicentre of the jazz festival'.
This year, Aarhus Jazz Orchestra journeys home, hosting evening shows titled 'Scandinavian Big Band Nights'. The band will take on the Scandinavian jazz heritage along with the excellent Danish singer and entertainer Mads Mathias and the new Swedish jazz star Mimi Terris.
Audiences can look forward to a great tribute to Danish and Swedish jazz classics as well as newer music by Mads Mathias and Mimi Terris, delivered by some of Scandinavia's most capable jazz players.
