Modern melodic jazz

This afternoon's repertoire will be a mix of jazz standards and original compositions by Hannes Riepler and Esben Tjalve.

The music will be melodic, modern jazz with strong rhythmic elements and grooves as well as a good swing that supports the various improvisations.

Hannes Riepler and Esben Tjalve have worked together for many years on the English jazz scene and now play with Christian Vuust on sax and Torben Bjørnskov on bass.
