Odd Pocket (DK)
New music that challenges the listener
Odd Pocket is a quintet with a vision of creating new, exciting and inspiring music that both challenges the listener with odd rhythms and timing, but at the same time captures the listener with strong grooves, energetic progress and catchy melodies.
The group plays original compositions by bandleader Jens Emil Jensen (drums) who operates in the fusion/modern genre and does so with a vibrant and dynamic approach to ensemble and improvisation.
Odd Pocket's unique sound is both influenced by the individual musicians' original styles and sound as well as by constellation that one does not encounter often.
Odd Pocket made its debut at Aarhus Jazz Festival 2018, where they played at Jazz & Venner (A-House, Institut for X), where they also played during Vinterjazz 2019.
In April 2019, Odd Pocket records a debut EP with the newly started jazz label Jazzkataloget and hope to release it sometime this summer.
