North from Copenhagen truly have the extraordinary skills to add a new exciting chapter to Scandinavian jazz. Their classic Jazz Piano Trio format consisting of piano, double bass and drums produces atmospheric soundscapes that sound way bigger than their setting would suggest.
Their compositions, consisting of straightforward melodies in complex arrangements, pay as much attention to the notes not played as the ones the listener hears. In typical Nordic jazz tradition the changes between major and minor moods create this special kind of melancholy only the Scandinavians are capable of.
With the telepathic interplay of the three musicians North effortlessly move between composition and improvisation as well as modern minimalism and Nordic tradition. This provides a dynamic that immediately bonds with their audience from the first note, taking them on a journey where everything´s possible and everyone´s invited!
Benjamin Nørholm Jacobsen (p), Martin Brunbjerg Rasmussen (b) and Lasse Jacobsen (dr) met whilst attending the conservatory in southern Denmark. Brought together by their mutual passion for the piano trio they now set out to not only broaden the boundaries of the concept, but also to take it to a new level. Listening to their Singles „New Water“ and „Eternal Sleep“ there is no doubt they will succeed!
