DANISH:

I Kathrine Windfeld Sekstet udføres de farverige og attitudestærke kompositioner af et stærkt sammenspillet hold unge jazzmusikere fra København og Malmø. Musikerne har spillet sammen på kryds og tværs i adskillige år, og udgør derfor en stærk enhed med rige udfoldelsesmuligheder for den enkelte.

 

I 2016 modtog Windfeld en Danish Music Award for sit første album med Kathrine Windfeld Big Band: "Aircraft". Samme energi og opfindsomhed gennemsyrer sekstetten: Storswingende ensemblepassager udløser medrivende og fantasifulde soli i et varieret repertoire, hvor attitudestærke grooves afløses af lyriske, elegante ballader. Glimtvis fornemmer man Windfelds fascination af artister som Kenny Wheeler, Brandford Marsalis og Dave Holland, men ikke desto mindre har hun sat sit helt personlige præg på det klassiske sekstet-format.

 

ENGLISH:

Kathrine Windfeld is considered one of the most exiting and refreshing new Scandinavian jazz composers and arrangers. She won a Danish Music Award 2016 with her big band album AIRCRAFT which has impressed several reviewers, all stunned by the brilliant compositions, hard swinging ensemble parts, and excellent soloists.

 

The same electrifying vibe and energy fills her sextet - a strong unit of young Danish and Swedish musicians. The sidemen display their talents as not only fine soloists but as excellent ensemble players, phrasing the themes with verve and authority. It's not a secret that the vibrant, and colourful charts draw inspiration from artists like Kenny Wheeler, Dave Holland, and Brandford Marsalis. Nevertheless, Kathrine Windfeld has definetly shaped her own musical voice with countless original pieces - often characterised by rhythmic twists, complex harmonies, and a strong attitude.
