Jazz in Generationernes Hus – Day 3

3.00 PM: Christian Vuust Quartet feat. Ólafur Jónsson

Saxophonist and composer Christian Vuust has been active on the Scandinavian jazz scene for more than three decades, and in recent years has also toured extensively in Japan. He has performed with the likes of Aaron Parks, Ben Street, Pablo Held, Peter Laugesen, Kazumi Ikenaga, Pauseland, Lars Jansson, and Alex Riel. For this concert, Vuust will play his own compositions and has allied himself with four strong musical personalities: saxophonist Ólafur Jónsson, pianist Esben Tjalve (Red Kite, Jasper Høiby, and more), double bassist Torben Bjørnskov (Matthew Herbert, Nordens Tone, and more) and drummer Frederik Bülow (Abekejser, Clapper, Misceo, and more). 


4.15 PM: 3 x Piano

3 x Piano with Hans Esbjerg, Mads Bærentzen, and Pojken Flensborg behind the grand pianos will once again duel it out on their keys at this year's jazz festival.

The trio, which will soon be celebrating its 20th anniversary, takes on a new theme during each festival – and this year is no exception. Under the title Highlights from the 60's, the three pianists will play some of the greatest classics of the decade, which was great in terms of jazz music but also cemented rock as the popular music of the modern age.


A glass of wine will be served during the intermission. This year, it will be possible to buy a jazz platter (follow ticket link), which can be enjoyed after the shows.

The event will take place in Øens Madhus, which is housed in the Generationernes Hus, and there will be possible to sit both inside and outside in the maritime setting of Aarhus Ø.
