About the album

A tour de force from the musical frontline carried by a fabulous rhythm-section performing new contemporary music with an edge.

The project holds Solborgs compositional ideas for a large hand-picked ensemble with strong international individualists given a great amount of freedom within a composed framework.

Texture and melody, transparency and warmth, composed and improvised are keywords. It’s about mutual intuitive understanding, musical equilibrium and a certain collective approach to joining complex, intricate writing, strong melodies and free organic interplay.

During Copenhagen Jazzfestival 2010 the group, featuring the American saxophone-player Chris Speed, performed and recorded these 5 new pieces written for the occasion by Solborg.

Django Bates wrote in London Jazz:
“What an impressive line-up. They are all virtuosi; they are all individuals.”

With his unique and utterly compelling approach to melody and phrasing Speed is a major voice of his time. Together with Jim Black, Tim Berne, Michael Formanek, Cuong Vu, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Dave Douglas a.o. he has taken part in the formation of a new, comtemporary language within jazz and improvised music.

With 11 releases as leader or co. leader Solborg has established himself with clear defined imprints on the Danish and International Jazz- and Improv-scene.
Collaborators include Evan Parker, Herb Robertson, a.o. His work as guitarist and composer has recieved substantial international recognition.
