Odd Pocket (DK)
Irregular beats, swinging grooves, and energetic drive
Odd Pocket is a brand new quintet that explores and fuses elements of traditional and modern jazz with a vision of creating new and exciting soundscapes.
The band plays original compositions by bandleader Jens Emil Jensen (drums) as well as modern arrangements of jazz standards.
Their music challenges and captivates listeners with irregular beats, strong swinging grooves, and an energetic drive. The music comes to life through a strong ensemble and dynamic improvisations.
Odd Pocket consists of a number of young, aspiring jazz musicians from Aarhus and Copenhagen, who add their own personal touch to the music and contribute the unique sound of Odd Pocket.
The musicians come from diverse musical backgrounds, including jazz music at Skurup Folkhögskola and the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus/Aalborg.
