Late Night Jazz Jam – Adrian Christensen (DK)
Innovative bassist in charge of Late Night Jazz Jam
Adrian Christensen is a bassist on his way up, nationally as well as internationally. As bandleader or co-leader of bands such as Bangin's Bülows Nice Jazz Quartet and Abekejser, he helps to bring jazz in new directions, yet is not afraid to take on challenges in the form of new genres acquaintances.
"He even speaks through his afro-inspired ostinatos, which stand as if chiselled into the soundscape. It's talking bass at a bold and demanding level and at the same time stable and easy to feel the pulse in. I want to postulate that Adrian Christensen here brings a new dimension to what blessed Hugo Rasmussen originally supplied with Dørge and the Jungle Orchestra. Christensen has a very modern jazz sound and lots of afro behind his drive. ”
