SHL Productions is proud to present:
For the first time in Barby – Brian Blade / Scott Cooley / Benjamin Koppel
The KCB Trio arrive for a winter night of fine jazz
A little about each of the ribs:
Brian Blade, a great drummer, has for years been considered a rising star and one of the most sought-after and well-known jazz musicians of the 21st century, with a universal approach and charismatic personality. He is a Vorstilian drummer with free movement on a wide spectrum of jazz-rock-blues-fusion, with collaborations with the biggest ones such as Bob Dylan, Johnny Mitchell, Marianne Faithful, Chick Corea, Joshua Redman, Nora Jones, John Petitucci, and too little to contain. In addition, Blade is a regular member of Wayne Schorter’s quartet, which is one of the greatest jazz icons of all time. It is a kind of consensus for the most important animal legend today in the genre and who connected Art Blake’s hip-hop with the 1960s Reperport in the 70’s – Brian Blade makes the same connections between jazz and rock and even folk with his mother’s composition – The Fellowship. Scott Coley, bassist and counter-bassist of our time – a student of Charlie Hayden, nominated for three Grammy Awards and a member of the ensembles with Herbie Hancock, Chris Potter, Pat Methini, John Scofield and more. Coley has played over 200 albums in his career for over 30 years. Completes the intriguing Trio, the saxophonist Benjamin Kopel, one of the most prominent and award-winning jazz community in Denmark and actually the man who founded the ensemble in 2012.
All three of them are working with traditional jazz artists – vocal with Dizzy Gillespie and Art Farmer, Kopel with Phil Woods and Kenny Drew among others, and on the other hand with modern artists and avant-garde Coley with Bobby Hutcherson and Andrew Hill, Koppel with Paul Bligh and Uri Cain . The concept of playing without a harmonica [guitar, piano] is a form of jazz breakthroughs like Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane and Ornet Coleman [with whom he was responsible for Charlie Hayden who took my voice under the auspices of a huge revolution of free jazz in 1959] Allowing for adventurous flexibility and wider interpretation for each moment in the joint playing.
Thus we received a fascinating package and a promise for a magical journey in the jazz districts on the Barbie stage.
