Kenneth Dahl Knudsen Quintet: Album Release

“Premium” is Montmartre’s series of rare intimate concerts with jazz giants that you cannot normally meet on small intimate stages. These concerts are priced above the normal tickets to cover costs and travel for these heavy-weights.

The Danish jazzmusician, composer, arranger and bandleader, Kenneth Dahl Knudsen, is an internationally in demand sideman due to his intuitive virtuosity on double bass, a mastery that led him to work with names like John Scofield or Aaron Parks. The release of his fourth album “Tété” sees him stepping into the limelight as a composer and bandleader of his international quintet. Musical influences from all over the world come together with a naturalness that implies Knudsen has the formula for successfully translating the fundamental idea of jazz into the age of globalisation. As a bandleader, he manages to unite all the experiences he made on his recent journey through 33 countries and tie them all up into one impressive complete work. Backed by the blindly intuitive interplay of his quintet Knudsen combines harmonies of the European music tradition with the playful rhythms of Africa and Latin America as well as the expressiveness of Jewish folksongs as if they belonged together naturally, sounding like no one else but himself.

Musikeren, komponisten, arrangøren og bandlederen Kenneth Dahl Knudsen er en internationalt efterspurgt sideman grundet hans intuitive virtuositet på kontrabassen. Hans evner har ført ham til samarbejde med musikere som John Scofield og Aaron Parks. På sin fjerde udgivelse ”Tété” træder han for alvor ind i rollen som komponist og bandleder med sin internationale kvintet. Musikalske indflydelser fra hele verden flettes ganske naturligt sammen og danner en fremvisning af Knudsens egenskab til succesfuldt at oversætte og fortolke de fundamentale idéer i jazzen i en globaliseret verden. Som bandleder formår han at forene sine oplevelser fra sin rejse gennem 33 lande og samle dem til et smukt sammenhængene værk. Kvintetten har et helt intuitivt samspil, og med Knudsen i front kombinerer de harmonier fra den europæiske tradition med folkemusikken og de legesyge rytmer fra Afrika og Latinamerika, helt som hvis de passede naturligt sammen.
