The young Danish composer, pianist and big band leader, Kathrine Windfeld, stands in front of her 15-piece orchestra, a youthful, charismatic team of razor-sharp ensemble musicians and star quality soloists. Kathrine Windfeld has received quite a lot of international attention since she won “New Artist of the Year” in 2016 at the Danish Music Awards, and with further nominations as “Composer of the year” and “Album of the year”. Her recent album, Latency (2017) has received overwhelmingly positive reviews and publicity in large numbers of international music magazines: REVIEWS: “Kathrine Windfeld is a rising star on the European jazz scene, not least for her bold writing for her adventurous big band” Portrait in Jazzwise (UK) “Windfeld’s band of leading young Scandinavian musicians is as tight and sharp as any you’ll hear.” **** The Guardian (UK) "The music on Latency could pass for a top-notch American Big Band " ***½ Downbeat (USA) In 2014-15, her KW Big Band had a weekly gig at the exclusive jazz club The Standard in Copenhagen, where they played with international stars like Mike Stern (USA), Nancy Harms (USA) and Gilad Hekselman (ISR). It's with good reason, Kathrine Windfeld has been called “Scandinavia’s new big band star. In 2017, she received the honorable 1-year grant from The Danish Arts Foundation, and she is booked as “Artist in Residence” in Holland and Norway for the autumn season 2017. www.windfeldmusic.dk <br>
