Other than a small tour in Poland I didn’t do much in March. So that’s why, I didn’t do a March update. But get ready for April!
Starting today I’m going on a tour in Denmark with my band Intuition with Bill McHenry, Jacob Anderskov and RJ Miller. Tonight we are playing at Paradise Jazz in Copenhagen, so hope to see you folks in Copenhagen!
8th Paradise Jazz Copenhagen
9th Momentum, Odense
10th Atlas (Sun Ship) Århus
11th Huset in Aalborg
On the 12th I’m playing a standard gig with Bill and RJ at Blågårds Apotek. planning on asking different cats to sit in…
On the 14th I’m playing the jam session at La Fontaine with Andreas Fryland and the great New York saxophone player, Joel Frahm, so be sure to come and listen or play!
Another great thing is, that I can confirme, that Dave Liebman is going to join us for some gigs in December! So far we have one gig at Daxter in Odense confirmed, other than a gig in Sweden and a gig at a jazz festival in the Czech Republic, but we are working on getting to play in Copenhagen as well. We’ll see…
Phil Markowitz piano
Richard Andersson bass
Anders Mogensen drums
Dave Liebman saxophone
Check my website for more infomation in the coming months
Copenhagen Jazz festival is also going to be exciting! I’m glad to tell you, that Rakalam Bob Moses is going to join us again this year! I’m probably going to play two gigs with him, but more about that later… I’m also going to play with my bands Udu and ImmerGrün, so I’m really looking forward to that!
Hope everyone will have a nice April and hope to see you out there!
I just send an important application to Kunststyrelsen yesterday. If I’ll get the grand, it will help me to expand my international network and kik off my international career over the two next years, so I’m really much hoping that!!!
I’m playing 3 jam openers this munth. The first one tonight at Jazzhus Montmartre with the Boston pianist, Kevin Herris and Niclas Campagnol on drums. Tomorrow I play the jam opener at La Fontaine with Jesper Lovdal and Andreas Fryland, and on Monday it’s at Dexter in Odense with Keven Herris and Anders Mogensen. Other than that, I’m going to be in the jury for the young jazz competition at Giant Steps in Svendborg, which I’m looking very much forward to. I didn’t win when I attended the competition back in 2007, but I’m happy that ‘I didn’t stop playing because of that!
The Intuition tour in April looks like it is going to be four gigs in Copenhagen, Odense Aarhus and Aalborg. It’s going to be great to play the first tour after our release in april last year!
Hope to see you out there!
I’m looking forward to a slow start on 2013. I have to small gigs and one recording, so I’ll have time to rehearse and compose, which I don’t do too often… I’m also going to use a lot of time to book bothe the summer festivals and the fall tours, which I know are going to be some fun tours.
I’ll try to put out the recording with George Garzone, Jerry Bergonzi and Bob Moses already this summer, and maybe we will get to play at CPH jazz festival.
As for now I’m planning on touring with Phil Markowitz and Anders Mogensen in the end of November. If everything works out well, we will have a special guest for you, but more about that later…
In December I’m planning on touring wiht my band, Udu, in Poland. That is going to be the first time we will play more than two gigs in a row, so I really hope it works out!
I wish all of you a great star of 2013!
