What's better than one saxophone? – Many saxophones!

Yusef Lateef would have been 100 years old in 2020. Despite a year's delay, he should be hailed as the giant he was. Saxophonist, composer, and spiritual guiding star in music.

The Jonas Andreasen Double Tenor Quartet is a versatile quartet that takes on the royal format of two saxophones with new guests. This evening, they will be joined by the amazing Niels Vincentz and a number of local saxophone heroes.

The fantastic swinging and lively rhythm group that makes it all possible is made up of Daniel Sommer and Jens Mikkel Madsen – both experienced band leaders and sidemen from the Aarhus jazz scene, known from Orgelduo, I Think You're Awesome, Karmen Rõivassepp Quartet, and countless other contexts.

On this night, the band will play a number of Yusef Lateef's compositions in addition to Jonas Andreasen's cheeky counterfactuals and originals – and the band sends its regards:

We are very much looking forward to this special evening in the absolutely fantastic surroundings of Helsingør Theater


The concert is part of the series The Iconic Saxophone at Aarhus Jazz Festival 2021.
