A Groovy and Intense Soundtrack for the Weekend Magic

Weekend Sax offers interpretations of Friday's expectations, Saturday's wondrous nightlife, the romantic encounter, the hot dance, and Sunday's peace and daydreams.

With humor, presence, and a cool groove, they perform well-known melodies from a musical treasure trove inspired by the likes of Dexter Gordon, Sonny Rollins, Branford Marsalis, Robert Glasber, and Christian Scott.

The trio consists of:

Bjarne Slipsager, a groovy and expressive saxophonist known from Sam and The Soulmates and The Tarantino Twist Show.

Peter Friis, known by many for his swinging, musical, and groovy bass playing, has been heard in collaborations with Jesper Thilo, Finn Odderskov, and Karmen Rõivassepp.

Kristoffer Lysgaard, who is one of the most charismatic drummers on the Danish jazz scene. With inciting, virtuosic, playful, and energetic playing, he always makes the music swing.
