Swinging concert with young jazz talents

Casper Hejlesen is a forward-thinking young jazz guitarist and composer from North Jutland. At age 21, he has already won several awards: Årets Nordjyske Jazznavn (2019), Klaverstemmerens Musikpris (2019), and Spar Nord Hjørring's culture award (2017).

Casper Hejlesen released his debut album Overture on November 20 last year, featuring some of the country's most talented young jazz musicians. Founded in Nordic soundscapes and simple melodies, the listener is taken on a musical adventure that also pays homage to American improvisational jazz traditions. The young composer shows great storytelling ability and describes ambiances from the idyllic countryside to the hectic city life.

The quartet also includes three other leading young musicians from the Danish jazz scene: trumpeter Jonas Due (OTOOTO, Be-Bike-Sun-Tree), bassist Adrian Christensen (Abekejser, Karmen Rõivassepp Quartet), and drummer Frederik Bülow (Abekejser, Bangin 'Bülows Nice Jazz Quartet).
