Late Night Jazz Jam - Jens Emil Jensen (DK)
Jens Emil Jensen (drm), and many others
Join in the jazz festival's traditional musical free play
At the jazz festival's nightly jam sessions, Danish and foreign musicians from near and far come together in new constellations and play music to the delight of both themselves and the audience.
Each night has its own jam host, who will welcome musicians and audiences to join in the musical fun. A competent team of musicians will get the party started. Then the jam starts.
Grab your instrument, or "butter up" your vocals, and join in the musical celebration. A piano, drum kit, guitar, and bass amplifiers and microphones are available on stage.
This evening's host is Jens Emil Jensen - an up-and-coming 26-year-old jazz drummer and composer. Jens Emil Jensen plays an active role in the Aarhus jazz scene, has plenty of experience as a jam host, and has organized almost 100 of his regular Aarhus Jazz Jam sessions. In addition, he plays in a range of projects, from big bands to musicals, and not least as a bandleader in his own jazz/fusion quintet Odd Pocket. Jens Emil Jensen has a great love for quirky time signatures and advanced rhythms, but he also loves the swinging grooves that you will hear this evening.
