A nearby journey – for the jazz quintet

Gorm Askjær Secret Safari consists of a selection of fantastic and different musicians in a band that contains both traditional and modern, melodic and exploratory, swinging and floating. The band plays original compositions for the jazz quintet with a fresh and personal take on 21st-century jazz. Various other influences such as country, surf rock, and classical music are involved.

The concert marks the release of the band's debut album, First Movement, where the listener is invited on a nearby journey – a secret safari, not to the savannah of Africa, but to the crashing waves of the North Sea at Cold Hawaii. Passing three fantastic fantasy dances and something that lurks under the porch to a trip into the first 16 bars of a Brahms symphony. The inspiration of what is nearby is especially important at a time when the corona pandemic has forced us all to slow down. To not travel, but stay where we are. Here we must open the senses to all that is right in front of us – where we have always been.

Kasper Tranberg has for many years marked himself as one of the foremost jazz trumpeters and improvisers in the country. He has played with a wide range of musicians at home and abroad – among others Marc Ducret, Hugo Rasmussen, Yousef Lateef, and Savage Rose.

Christian Vuust has played all across the kingdom thin with his soft and swinging saxophone, among other things with Pauseland, Den Danske Salmeduo, and in a praised duo collaboration with the American pianist Aaron Parks.

The rhythm group consists of guitarist and composer Gorm Askjær, double bassist Thomas Sejthen (Indra, Uffe Steen Trio), and drummer Morten Nottelman.
