About the album

This is the Danish pianist and composer Jeppe Zeeberg's first release in his own name. He is known for groups like Dødens Gaderobe and Bird Alert, and now time has come for the young, uncompromising musician to stand on his own two feet and present a very personal type of modern jazz. He does so using an "expanded" piano trio with two double basses and two drummers. This orchestra contains some of the most vital improvisers on the Copenhagen avant-garde jazz scene.

The music combines compositions and free improvisations. Zeeberg composes using the notion that all genres may be combined as long as they are held together by a strong personal style. Therefor the music may be inspired by anything from traditional jazz through Monk and Ellington to hiphop and classical avant-garde a la Feldman and Varèse.

Zeeberg's music is an uncompromising proposal for how todays' modern jazz may sound. The entire album does not feature a single regular solo. The music is too complex for that. But the music unfolds in a very alive and constantly changing, sonic landscape where all participants may join with new initatives at any time - all held within Zeeberg's humorous and experimental style.
