Jazz for bass and harmonica

Mathias Heise is a virtuoso on his harmonica mouth harp and an exceptional musical talent. He started playing the harmonica at the age of eight and was fascinated by the instrument, which has followed him through thick and thin ever since. It is rare that a young Danish musician goes on to become a world champion on his instrument. However, Mathias Heise became world champion in chromatic harmonica in 2013 at the age of 20.

In 2012, he formed Mathias Heise Quadrillion, which has managed to create a different, unique, and very personal contemporary expression by combining the harmonies and improvisation of jazz with the hard-hitting rhythms of rock and funk music. He also played with the world-renowned composer and pianist Bent Fabricius-Bjerre during his last public shows in 2018 and 2019.

Peter Vuust is a professor at Aarhus University and the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus/Aalborg, head of the Center for Music in the Brain, and is also one of the country's busiest sidemen. He has been featured on more than 90 records, including with several international jazz stars such as Tim Hagans, Mal Waldron, Ted Curson, and Jukkis Uotila. He is known for his groovy and responsive backing and extremely melodic solo playing. As a composer and bassist, he has released six albums, most recently the CD Leaves of Love featuring Lars Jansson (p), Veronica Mortensen (voc), and Peter Asplund (trp).
