Martin Vollertsen Trio (DK/SE)
Modern jazz with many sources of inspiration
Martin Vollertsen is a 25-year-old jazz pianist and composer, born and raised in Aarhus, and with a bachelor's degree from the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus/Aalborg. In addition to performing, Martin Vollertsen is also co-responsible for the weekly Aarhus Jazz Jam at Café Smagløs.
He gets a lot of inspiration from jazz that moves on the edge of the avant-garde. Musicians like Paul Bley, Keith Jarrett and Ornette Coleman are great sources of inspiration.
He brings along two eminent musicians, Danish Thorbjørn Stefansson and Swedish Jacob Lindberg.
The evening's repertoire will consist of Martin Vollertsen's own compositions. The music is modern jazz, inspired by everything from newer classical music to country.
