KJC proudly presents the super star performance of 2017:
Benjamin Kopple (DK), Scott Colley (US) and Brian Blade (US)!

Benjamin Koppel (DEN), saksofoni
Scott Colley (USA), basso
Brian Blade (USA), rummut

Blade’s creativity blends perfectly with Colley’s strong improvisations and Koppel’s lyrical sax playing. All three musicians write music for the trio and the coming album, which stretches from quiet, beautiful ballad- like jazz, to the more powerful, energetic, rock-influenced sub-genres.

Benjamin Koppel is one of the most award-winning musicians of his generation. He has released more than 30 CDs as band leader that include collaborations with giants like Paul Bley, Miroslav Vitous, and Phil Woods. In 2011, Koppel became a cultural knight of France for his major contribution to French jazz via collaborations with Daniel Humair and many more.

 

Scott Colley is the bassist choice for such jazz legends as Herbie Hancock, Jim Hall, Andrew Hill and Michael Brecker. His remarkably empathetic skills, strong melodic sense and improvisational abilities can be heard in groups led by colleagues Chris Potter, John Scofield, Adam Rogers, Brian Blade, David Binney and Kenny Werner. Furthermore, Colley has a list of releases as leader to his name. These features musicians such as Bill Frisell, Mark Turner, Ralph Alessi and many more.

Brian Blade has established himself as one of the most important drummers of the 21st century. His exceptional abilities behind the drums have given Blade the opportunity to work with the who’s who of the jazz world and other rhythmic genres. To name a few, Blade has collaborated with Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and Daniel Lanois. And in the jazz world he has been a regular member of both Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock’s bands. Lastly, Blade has been very successful with his own projects The Fellowship Band and Mama Rosa.
