About the album

Gimme Some Truth - John Lennon
...it says on the wall in the back-room of the small bar KIND OF BLUE, Nørrebro, Copenhagen.
Regardless that the world definitely is in shortage of honesty, this album does not, in any way claim to be the thruth or more truthfull than other music. But it is the true unpolished story of what saxophonist Anders Banke and guitarist Mark Solborg played for an exclusive invited audience at three consecutive nights during the Danish Vinterjazz Festival 2014.
In the intimate living-room-ish concert format the duo could work with a focused audience and an atmosphere suitable for good songs. The result is 8 tracks that let’s you eavesdrop on the dry, intense experience the guests at KIND OF BLUE had those days in February.

During the last 10 years Anders and Mark have put some heavy fingerprints on the Danish jazz- and improv scene. Mostly in the groups such as Mark Solborg 4, moLd, Solborg 4 4 1 and/or with New Jungle Orchestra, Spring, with Herb Robertson, Chris Speed, Egberto Gismonti, John Tchicai, Evan Parker and many others....

They insist on musical presence and a personal approach whether the material is improvised, through-composed, abstract or just a good song. The latter is what’s going on with the duo. These are carefully selected favourite songs by Monk, Ellington, Hank Williams, Tchicai, and an original or two. The aim is to respectfully interpret and challenge the tradition and themselves....
