Hope, joy, longing, and melancholy

The quintet consists of five musicians, all of whom are deeply rooted in the Scandinavian sound. The music is inspired by the deserted and open Nordic landscape.

Lyrical melodies characterize the compositions, which contain both hope and joy, longing and melancholy.

In 2015, the quintet was nominated for a Danish Music Award Jazz for the critically acclaimed debut release Bagland.

“Occasionally, debut records appear that deserves the highest amount of praise. Trumpeter Jakob Sørensen's album Bagland belongs in this rare category.”
Niels Overgård –

In July 2016, the EP NOMAD, which is a natural follow-up to the debut album, was released. The title track contributed to bandleader Jakob Sørensen being named the new jazz name of the year 2017.

Bagland recently released their third record Cirkel.
