Kathrine Windfeld Sextet at Jazzhus Montmartre Copenhagen, October 2021
Live review from Jazzopen Stuttgart 2021
"With the Danish pianist Kathrine Windfeld, one of the few acts in the festival program had previously which were fully assigned to the jazz genre caused quite a stir. Her sextet offers more than the piano trio plus wind section suggests, her modern jazz is state of the art and dares to venture out into the open."
