Bangin’ Bülow’s Nice Jazz Quartet (DK)
Exploratory, challenging and innovative jazz
Bangin ’Bülow’s Nice Jazz Quartet creates music that explores, challenges and innovates jazz. They formed the group seven years ago and have released three albums along the way. Their debut album was honoured with a DMA for New Danish Jazz Act of the Year 2014 and their second album was awarded by the Danish Arts Foundation.
All Bangin's members stem from the Silkeborg area, but their jobs as professional musicians have spread them across several continents. The four musicians are now spread out in Helsinki, Berlin, Bamako and Aarhus. Despite the great distances, the group has been touring in the United States, West Africa, Russia and Europe in recent years and, in addition, recorded their third album in collaboration with the world-famous jazz guitarist Gilad Hekselman.
The music is uncompromising and original. They combine jazz, hip hop and afro and perform with a playful and outgoing approach to their sometimes complicated compositions.
