John Riddell is a composer, arranger, and conductor, as well as one of the most sought-after drummers in Denmark. Despite his young age, Riddell has already left his mark on the Danish jazz scene with many different soloists and bands. He is the drummer of the Aarhus Jazz Orchestra, which plays more than 80 concerts a year. In addition, he has played with many great Danish and international soloists, including Seamus Blake, Teitur, Kira Skov, Maria Lucia, Caroline Henderson, and Cæcilie Nordby.

Since forming his own trio, Mads Bærentzen has released a number of albums in collaboration with bassist Morten Ramsbøll and drummer Kristian Leth. Bærentzen released his first solo album in 2012, and most recently, in 2015, a follow-up solo album Natten er så stille with renditions of a number of songs by composer C. E. F. Weyse. Over the years, he has played with a wide range of jazz greats including Kurt Elling, Dianne Reeves, Cecilie Norby, and Chris Minh Doky.
Peter Vuust is a unique combination of jazz musician and brain scientist. He is the director of the Center For Music In the Brain and a professor at the Academy and Aarhus University. He is known for his groovy and responsive backing as well as extremely melodious solo playing. As a composer and bassist, he has released seven albums of his own and has contributed to more than 100 CDs, most recently the album Further To Fly (2022) with 5 x Vuust.
