This trio sets out to win your hearts with inventive, open music.
Over the past 10 years, Kasper Tom has made his name on the European
improv- and advantgarde-scene. Kasper's music draw inspiration from modern composition, but is also imbued with a great deal of melancholy and a unique sense of melody.
Jacob Anderskov has released close to 20 albums as a leader and co-leader since his debut in 2001. He has received numerous awards and has been acclaimed by the international press as a great voice in contemporary music. His work ranges from improvised works in small groups to fully composed pieces for larger ensembles.
Sven Dam Meinild is a musical octopus. Moving effortlessly in most musical settings from balkan over pop music to avantgarde jazz, he is a crucial part of bands like Guldimund and Ocean Fanfare.

The quintet setting around Bern based pianist Stefan Schultze and Berlin based saxophonist Peter Ehwald with its traditional form trumpet and tenor plus piano trio is a homage to Jazz itself and yet at the same time creates a context which demands reformulation and recalibration. Both leaders developed music that leaves maximal space for communication in a limited but dearly loved musical frame. No over-information - the composition formulate the most important terms for the ensemble to create improvisatorial moments - directly and emotional. Tomasz Dabrowski and Peter Ehwald are two very different exiting soloists who are constantly highlighting contrapuntal nuances. To hear the piano trio with Stefan Schultze and Andreas Lang (b) and Moritz Baumgärtner (dr) filling the space in this music is both thrilling and surprising.
