Rasmus Ehlers US3 (DK/US)
Well-founded jazz with inspiration from other genres
At this trio concerto, Rasmus Ehlers plays with his American musicians. They stand proud and well put together on a bedrock of jazz, but also work with inspiration from other traditions.
Therefore, US3 also plays music by, among others, Gustav Mahler and Leonard Cohen, but based on the acoustic trio format.
The concert will feature framed "responsive islands", where the trio musician will pamper the audience with surprising but meaningful experiences.
On this Sunday afternoon, it is the group's intention to bring the audience to the place where the music is created. The reason why Rasmus Ehlers plays with precisely Ugonna Okegwo and Colin Stranahan is their shared passion for creating space for listening to each other.
