Musical and Poetry Meet at Musikhuset

Experience three of Danish jazz's greatest capacities at Musikhuset Swings as Jakob Bro and Palle Mikkelborg revisit the lyrical vibes and compositions from their acclaimed ECM album Returnings at with Aarhus Jazz Festival.

They are joined by the uncrowned percussion queen Marilyn Mazur, whose virtuosic and playful approach is tailor-made for the pair's spherical soundscapes.

Marilyn Mazur became internationally renowned for her collaborations with Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, and Jan Garbarek, and as the driving force behind her own innovative band projects with leading Nordic musicians.

Jakob Bro opens the first set in a duo with poet, film director, and jazz lover Jørgen Leth, who is behind the critically acclaimed documentary Music For Black Pigeons, which can be seen at Øst for Paradis during the jazz festival.
