Evan Parker is a titan of jazz improvisation. For this month’s show, he invites Jacob Anderskov’s Kinetics, some of the leading improvisers from Denmark, who are members of the influential ILK Collective, to join with him.
Line-up: Evan Parker, sax – Jacob Anderskov, piano – Adam Pultz Melbye, bass – Anders Vestergaard, drums.
Jacob Anderskov’s music has been described as “expanding the sonic language of Danish jazz” (Down Beat, 03, 2013), “constantly pushing the borders” (Jazzblog, dec 2106) even “seismographic” (JazzSpecial, June 2008), sensing Music’s tectonic changes early. However, Anderskov also has a deep love and passion for the jazz tradition, from the earliest jazz and up till today. This concert is a celebration of the entire history of Jazz, with a radical twist. It will be intense, dynamic and spiritual. It will be the soul of Jazz, as heard through a Modernist’s ears, and carried into the future.
