A declaration of love for jazz and Aarhus
Quist Jazz Quintet is an Aarhus jazz band consisting of musicians with well over 100 years of combined experience on Danish and international stages.
The repertoire consists of original material combined with some well-known jazz classics. Tescha Quist writes personal Danish lyrics for the band's songs, as well as for some of the jazz standards.
Lyrics and swing are nicely combined in the tight ensemble, which has been honed through many concerts.
Quist Jazz Quintet released their first EP Sjælsomt in 2020. The title track Sjælsomt går gennem byen and the accompanying music video have become known as a declaration of love for jazz and Aarhus.
The video can be watched at the link below.
In connection with the launch, Jyllands-Posten carried an article about Quist Jazz Quintet, which can be accessed here.
