About the album

Three time grammy-winning Danish drummer and composer, Stefan Pasborg, is releasing this brand new album with his exiting interpretations of six standards from the history book of rock'n'roll.

’'FREE MOBY DICK'' is the latest project by Danish drummer Stefan Pasborg, and has now resulted in this release, which includes very personal takes on 6 classic tracks from the historybook of Rock 'n' Roll !

A passion towards playing some of the iconic rock-riffs by bands like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and The White Stripes, but in his own way and as platforms for improvisations within a free approach, inspired him to create this project. These riffs, together with a track by The Rolling Stones and one by Tom Waits, is the foundation for this release.

In 2011 Pasborg was offered to be ‘Artist-in-Residence’ at Jazzhouse in Copenhagen, and early on he decided to present six new and unique constellations to the club. One of them he named ‘’Free Moby Dick’’ (a free and abstract name-twist of the big ‘’rock n’ roll whale’’ known as Moby Dick, with a little hint in direction of quite bad american B-movies about locked up whale lookalikes) in which the dogma should be to ONLY perform tracks from the history book of rock ‘n’ roll within a free approach. 

He invited three of his favorite European musicians to join the fun: Mikko Innanen (Fin), Liudas Mockunas (Lit) and Nicolai Munch-Hansen (Den) with whom he has so often played during the past 10-15 years in several other constellations (Delirium, Triot, Toxikum, Odessa 5, Megaphone etc.)  - The result is this record!
