Odderskov/Erichsen Duo (DK)
Jazz duo with honorary award winner
This duo masterfully plays jazz music with the recipient of the honorary award at this year's Ben Webster award ceremony, the Aarhus saxophonist Finn Odderskov.
Finn Odderskov is a well-known face in Danish jazz life. He plays an intrusive, swinging mainstream tenor with the old masters Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young as his role models.
He has worked several jazz jobs in more acts than most people can be bothered to count. At the moment, he treads the boards in the bustling orchestra Bourbon Street Jazz Band, among other things.
At this concert, you can experience Finn Odderskov's saxophone playing in an intimate setting, namely in collaboration with the pianist Niels Erichsen.
Niels Erichsen is known from a myriad of jazz constellations and was a permanent accompanist to the violinist Finn Ziegler for many years. With his raw-swinging and detailed game, he brings memories of Oscar Peterson.
