"Havana" - Pros & Talents by Copenhagen Jazz Orchestra

Experience rhythmic fire and elegance as the Afro-Cuban roots of jazz and the creative soloists of Copenhagen Jazz Orchestra meet in an exciting encounter in the concert "Havana", taking place at Aarhus Jazz Festival.

In "Havana", the intensity and deep groove of the authentic Afro-Cuban music tradition meets the exuberance, drama and beautiful sounds of the big band format. Copenhagen Jazz Orchestra invited the amazing Cuban percussionist Raydel Medina and the Danish-Cuban master Rune Harder Olesen to join this special collaboration, featuring new music by Lars Møller and Jesper Riis.

With Pros & Talents, Copenhagen Jazz Orchestra presents a brand new format that combines the country's most experienced jazz musicians with some of the greatest talents of the new generation. Pros & Talents is rooted in a collaboration with the country's professional and youth jazz big bands. 

Copenhagen Jazz Orchestra

Since the mid-1990s, Copenhagen Jazz Orchestra has been at the forefront of the modern big band sound in Denmark and Scandinavia. Featuring some of the best jazz musicians and composers of our time, along with a smooth chamber ensemble sound, the band has created innovative and creative projects. The band has released a wealth of acclaimed and award-winning albums and participated in several international collaborations.
