First Movement - Gorm Askjær Secret Safari

Gorm Askjær Secret Safari consists of a bouquet of fantastic and different musicians in an ensemble that contains both the traditional and the modern, the melodic and the sound-examining, the swinging and the floating.

 

The band plays original compositions for the jazz quintet with a fresh and personal take on jazz in the 21st century. Various other influences such as country, surf rock and classical music are involved.

Kasper Tranberg has for many years marked himself as one of the foremost jazz trumpeters and improvisers in Denmark. He has played with God and every man at home and abroad - among others Marc Ducret, Hugo Rasmussen, Yousef Lateef and Savage Rose.

Christian Vuust’s soft and swinging saxophone, is known from his playing with Pauseland, Den Danske Salmeduo and in a praised duo collaboration with the American pianist Aaron Parks.

The rhythm group consists of guitarist and composer Gorm Askjær, double bassist Thomas Sejthen (Indra, Uffe Steen Trio) and drummer Morten Nottelman.
