Original tunes and quirky versions of well-known jazz notes
This late afternoon at Salling ROOFTOP, you can experience a trio that has been playing together for almost 20 years.
Hear Peter Vuust and his two talented sons Frederik Vuust and Mikkel Vuust, who despite their young years are already fixtures on the Danish jazz scene. Through improvisation and daily tinkering with music, they have developed their own musical language and repertoire.
At ROOFTOP, they will play their own compositions as well as quirky arrangements and blazing versions of well-known and more obscure jazz standards. And you're sure to hear Frederik's unique vocals in a pop ballad or two.
Frederik Vuust studies piano at the Royal Academy of Music and is also an excellent singer with a very special voice.
Bassist Peter Vuust belongs to the elite of jazz musicians and has appeared on more than 100 CDs, including seven of his own. He is also a professor at Aarhus University and the Royal Academy of Music, and director of the Center for Music In the Brain. Peter has also been nominated for a DMA for the CD September Song.
Mikkel Vuust on drums studies at the Manhattan School of Music in New York and, at the age of 22, has played with a number of well-known jazz musicians, including Jacob Fischer, Henrik Gunde, Uffe Steen, and Sinne Eeg. Most recently, they released the CD Further to Fly with the family band 5xVuust, on which they covered Paul Simon songs.
