After 7 years, pianist Rasmus Ehlers, is finally back with the follow-up to his debut from 2002. Trinity is a quiet, thoughtfull and intense trio-album, recorded with two of the people that mean the most to him.
Since Rasmus Ehlers (b. 1971) has stayed and played in New York for longer periods. Furthermore, he has toured in a.o. France and Japan, and haz played with a series of great jazzers, a.o. Leroy Jones, Marc Mommas, Bob Mintzer and Bent Jädig. In 2007 he recieved the Sonning Grant, given to young musicians in Denmark and the North.
Rasmus didn't get his musicality from strangers. His father, Poul Ehlers played with greats such as Dexter Gordon and Yusuf Lateef, founded the cult-group ”Blue Sun” and was voted Danish Jazzmusician of the Year in 1970. No doubt he has passed on a great gift to his son....
