New music and interpretation of the saxophone sound
Musikhuset will be swinging when the Nikola Bankov Band takes the stage on July 14 at 10 pm alongside trumpeter Lars Søberg Andersen of Aarhus Jazz Orchestra.
The audience can look forward to hearing a string of original tunes from the band's latest album Dream Chaser, featuring world star Randy Brecker, as well as songs from the band's first release Bright Future. The music is a fusion of jazz, rock, and electronic elements, with Nikola Bankov reinterpreting the saxophone sound using effects pedals. This new music will inspire and add new colors to the musical palette.
Nikola Bankov Band is an international modern jazz group consisting of five up-and-coming musicians based in Aarhus. At only 23 years old, Nikola Bankov, who has been described as a "Bright young cat with fresh grooves" - (All About Jazz), leads the band.
