Improvisational musicians from three generations

Zeuthen  /  Anderskov  / Vestergaard is a crystallizing continuing collaboration between three Danish improvising musicians from three different generations, that places itself somewhere between textural improvisation, expressive free jazz and abstract soul. 

Alto saxophonist Jesper Zeuthen is a Danish legend, that got public attention already in the late 60’s for his work with the group “Blue Sun” and has continued to evolve his music through his own bands and his work with Jakob Bro, Anderskov Accident, Kasper Tranberg etc. 

Jacob Anderskov is one of the most outstanding voices on the piano and has, since his debut in 2001, received numerous awards for his music. He has worked with Michael Formanek, Chris Speed, Airto Moreira etc. In 2018 he is nominated for the Nordic Council Music Price. 

The youngest of the three, Anders Vestergaard, is all over the Danish underground music scene and known for his personal touch on the drums. He is a part of the hard-hitting groups Yes Deer and Laser Nun and has played with Evan Parker, Lotte Anker, Thomas Morgan etc. 

Together the three musicians creates a non-conceptual and bodily music that meets the audience in a both challenging and atoning way, emotionally multidimensional and spacious. They have developed a personal interplay where influences, dynamics and intensions floats freely between each other, melts together in synergy and explodes in abstraction, and where the aim is to create space instead of filling it up. A sort of reconciliatory blues to the great spectacle.
