Christina Dahl is one of Denmark’s most prominent saxophonists, educated from The Royal Danish Conservatory of Rhythmic Music in composition and saxophone. She has been awarded The Ben Webster Award, the Bent Jædig Prize, the Walter Klæbel Mindelegat among others. With her personal and lyrical sound she expresses a wide range from explosive virility to dimmed melancholy.
On her new album she brings the unique quartet consisting of one of our very best guitarists, Niclas Knudsen, the internationally acclaimed bassist Jesper Lundgaard and a great talent on the drums, Esben Laub von Liljenskjold. Together, the four musicians have developed a playful and free language, where everyone has a leading role as soloists.
This can be heard on seven compositions all written by Dahl. We meet a broad spectrum of musical temperaments. The language is free, but with a heightened sense of melody and a strong Nordic expression. Enjoy Scandinavian jazz with soul, depth and intensity.
But the album here.
