Jazz'n'Brunch with Karmen-Kwella-Christensen

Karmen-Kwella-Christensen consists of singer Karmen Röivasepp, guitarist Jens Christian Kwella, and bassist Adrian Christensen. The repertoire is mainly based on The Great American Songbook and includes evergreens, jazz numbers, and bossa nova. However, there will also be room for a few of Karmen's songs.

With their unique blend of intense vocals, beautiful guitar, and solid bass, the three musicians guarantee a memorable and atmospheric experience.

Award-winning Karmen is from Estonia and has established herself as one of the great stars of Danish vocal jazz. Her latest release, Karmen Rõivassepp & Aarhus Jazz Orchestra - Ambivalence, won a DMA for best jazz composer in 2023 and an award for jazz release of the year in Estonia. The following has been written about her:

“The bandleader's vocals are striking in their purity, and her range and pitch are impressive. And she's harmonically inventive when decorating melodies with intricate, scat phrases [...].” - Thomas Rees, Downbeat Magazine (2018)

Since the 90s, guitarist Kwella has been one of the leading forces of the jazz scene in Jutland. He released his latest album GuitarRama Jazzical in April, which thrilled a unanimous group of critics. Jazzspecial wrote, among other things:

“The two outstanding guitar wings' sensitive and responsive interplay is fascinating with the magic of the moment.” and “Kwella is an extremely experienced and driven guitarist who has a strong technical foundation to build on, giving him the calmness and resources to balance technique, empathy, and presence perfectly.”
