Here is a couple of videos from the Thomas Hass Trio’s and Beyond Lotus Energy cd release show at Politikens Boghal on the 22nd of September 2014.
Politikens Boghal, which is normally a bookstore, was transformed into a small cozy venue. A lot of jazz fans came, and the band played a set introducing the audience to the songs on the record and the new direction Thomas Hass takes with this project.
The sparse sound of Trio’s and Beyond focuses on clearheaded improvisations and strong melodies, as can be heard in these clips. Here is a blues, and some clips of the more representative stripped down arrangements of the compositions.
The band consists here of Thomas Hass (ts), Nikolaj Hess (e-piano), Lennart Ginman (b) and Frands Rifbjerg (dr). It is the two different trio constellations melted into one quartet for the show.
We should have one more video coming very soon.
