The new album from Mulgrew Miller and Niels-Henning ørsted Pedersen containing classic Duke Ellington compositions is finally out!

In 1999, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen and Mulgrew Miller came together in a unique and unlikely pairing to pay tribute to Duke Ellington on the 100th anniversary of his birth. The result was a passionate and long-lived musical partnership between two masters of their respective instruments, but the original recordings were never released. For the first time ever, more than 20 years after its recording, this lost treasure is finally made available to the public.

Jens Søndergaard: Plays the Brubeck-Desmond Songbook

Danish customers who wants to order can go to

Jens Søndergaard, who received the Ben Webster award in 2017, is one of the most important saxophonists in Danish Jazz. Perhaps a little overlooked because he has also had a career as a dentist, among other things for a number of the world's best Jazz musicians who have had their teeth fixed at Jens’ in Copenhagen for a lifetime. 

The good tune has always been important to Jens Søndergaard and therefore it is also natural that he just received the Ben Webster Award for his long and wonderful career. His duo collaboration with Kenny Werner stands as a milestone and as an example that Jens Søndergaard's sound on the alto saxophone also inspires American stars. 

Jens Søndergaard has always had a large and faithful audience. There is a good reason why he has always had a tightly packed calendar. The audience loves the warm radiance of Søndergaard and the beautiful and melodic play on the saxophone. 

Now he has recorded The Brubeck-Desmond songbook, which is a return to the music that has gotten so many into the Jazz. Dave Brubeck and Paul Desmond are two of the most iconic composers in the history of Jazz. When you hear Jens Søndergaard interpret their repertoire with his regular quartet, it is difficult not to just sit back and enjoy how simple and elegant it can be done. But of course it must be like this when Ole Kock Hansen is involved as an organizer, no one can do better than him on our latitudes. Kock Hansen is a great organizer and an equally great pianist. 

If you listen, you can clearly hear that this is an even very mixed rhythm group with a steady Aage Tanggaard on drums and Swedish Lars Lundström on bass. It is performed with an elegance it shines through that none of the players need to prove anything. 

Jens Søndergaard Quartet - Plays The Songbook of Brubeck-Desmond is a contemporary proposition of something to the best classical Jazz that exists. Turn on the music and enjoy the mood on a carefree Saturday afternoon or Jazz around at midnight when most have settled down.
