• Praise at ass. Prof. Chappe and his BSD & B

    12th of November 2014 · tags:

    Associate Professor and head of the Academy’s big band Jens Christian "Chappe" Jensen is the man behind the Aarhus based Blood Sweat Drum + Bass Big Band, who on 20 November releases a new CD and DVD titled "In the spirit of ...". The band consists of alumni and is extended here to include a couple of Syrian musicians and also Palle Mikkelborg and David Liebman (US), broadly known for his work with Miles Davis.

    In the newspaper JP Aarhus 8 November there is a great preview of the release, including a quote from Liebman: "Impressive how Jens Chr. combines a lot of styles and sounds into a coherent whole."

    And in the webmagazine allabouthjazz.com there already is a great review of the release ending with: "The perfect introduction to an adventurous big band that deserves wide recognition."

    On the release date the audience in Aarhus has the opportunity to experience Chappe as saxophone soloist with a jazz trio and a string quartet.
