Gode bassister er ingen mangelvare på den danske jazzscene. Men få behersker og udtrykker sig med lige så stor autoritet som Niels Wilhelm Knudsen. Efter mere end et kvart århundrede i forskellige musikalske sammenhænge, hersker der ingen tvivl om Niels Wilhelm Knudsens talent, både som komponist og instrumentalist. Tre CD’er i eget navn, og en fjerde LP om hjørnet, udgør et bagkatalog af store toner og herlige swingfornemmelser, der ikke høres for ofte i dagens yngre akustiske jazz. Niels Wilhelm Knudsens nye kvartet med tenoren Thomas Hass, pianisten Kathrine Windfeld og trommeslager Michael Dalgas har alle muligheder for at vække opmærksomhed, og gør det således på bedste vis denne aften, hvor kvartetten fejrer release på deres nye LP ved Unicorn Jazz afslutningskoncert efter næsten 40 års aktivitet.

Koncert præsenteres i samarbejde med UNICORN.
Billetpris: 100 kr. Sælges kun i døren.

Good bass players are not in short supply on the Danish Jazz scene. But only a few master and express themselves with the same authority as Niels Wilhelm Knudsen does with a bass. After more than a quarter of a century in different musical contexts, there should be no doubt about the talent that Niels Wilhelm Knudsen possesses, both as a composer and instrumentalist. Three CDs and a fourth LP just around the corner make up an extensive backlist of great tones and wonderful swing sensations, not often heard in today’s younger acoustic jazz. Niels Wilhelm Knudsen’s new quartet with tenor Thomas Hass, pianist Kathrine Windfeld and drummer Michael Dalgas have every opportunity to raise awareness and on this evening, they do so with a celebration of the release of their new LP at Unicorn Jazz’ final concert after nearly 40 year’s activity.

The concerts is presented in collaboration with UNICORN. Ticket price: DKK 100. Only sold at the door.
