Recording of my next album

We just finished two great days in the studio recording what will become my next release as bandleader & composer.

We recorded a 6-pieced suite that I have written based on the Aztec's Creation Myth "El Quinto Sol / The Fifth Sun". In this project I am collaborating with the great artist Rama King Nash as well as the anthropologist Max Suaza.

Apart from yours truly, the band consists of Jakob Sørensen on trumpet, Jesper Løvdal on tenor, baritone saxes & clarinet, Raphael Gimenes on acoustic guitar, Yohanier Ramón on percussion, Snorre Kirk on drums. We recorded in the old radio danish radio building with great sound engineering work done by Henrik Holst Hansen. I'm planning on releasing the whole thing in November, so stay tuned!
