2019 celebrates 100 years of Art Blakey and his legacy leading the Jazz Messengers. We’ve assembled an all-star international band, sparkling arrangements by Søren Møller, and a few other surprises (ie. vocals!) for the occasion. A
Jesper Riis (DK)- trumpet
Karl-Martin Almqvist (SE) – tenor sax
Søren Møller (DK) – piano
Kristin Korb (US) – bass & vocals
*Karsten Bagge (DK) – drums
*We use the drum chair to feature various drummers. On the original event, Morten Lund played drums. On the 2019 Denmark tour, we’re featuring Rodney Green (US).
