Melodic Universe with Space for Improvisation

Ebba Dankel is a Swedish pianist, composer, and singer. She currently studies at Berklee College of Music and debuted on the Danish jazz scene last year. Her fine compositions are influenced by the classical jazz tradition, mixed with modern melodic language in a unique expression. This combination creates a new and colorful soundscape unique to the musician. On this afternoon, Ebba performs with Peter Vuust and Mikkel Vuust, creating a melodic universe with space for improvisation.

Peter Vuust is a professor at Aarhus University and the Royal Academy of Music, head of the Centre for Music in the Brain, and one of the country's most popular sidemen. He has been featured on more than 100 records and with international jazz stars such as Tim Hagans, Mal Waldron, Ted Curson, Jukkis Uotila, and many more. He is known for his groovy and responsive backing and extremely melodic solos. Peter has also been nominated for a DMA for his CD September Song.

Mikkel Vuust  is one of Denmark's most talented young drummers. Despite his young age, he has already played with Jakob Fisher, Uffe Steen, Henrik Gunde, and Sinne Eeg. He is currently studying at the Manhattan School of Music in New York and has just released the album Further To Fly with 5 x Vuust.
