Absolute Danstrup reviewed

Niels Overgård has written a nice review on his blog

The review is in Danish and ends up something like this: listen in and get captivated by the drama, the music and the story.

World’s Twelve Worst Books

I have finished recording 12 new songs for my next album, World’s Twelve Worst Books. This time the project involves 18 musicians and singers, and we had 5 days in the legendary studio in Copenhagen, The Village, with the phenomenal Thomas Vang as engineer. The album will be released in the autumn of 2022 on the ILK label.

New videos on YouTube

I have uploaded 2 new videos, both of them portraits of musicians: Django Bates and Chico Navarro. You couldn’t find two more incompatible people than these two! Click here for Django. Click here for Chico.

PULS improvisations

I had 2 nice days with a Danish-Norwegian group, December 5th in Copenhagen, Tuesday 7th in Oslo. The concerts are curated by PULS, a joint venture between the ILK label (DK) and Blow Out (N). I had the pleasure of inviting Helga Myhr, a young talented hardanger fele player, and Eivind Lønning, an extraordinary trumpet player and sound creator. Drummer Marilyn Mazur could unfortunately only join us in Copenhagen – she fell ill – and was substituted by Per Oddvar Johansen at the Kafé Hærværk in Oslo – he did a great job.
