Primary Instrument: Piano
After the trio-debut from 2008, Søren Bebe is back with Niels Ryde and Anders Mogensen at his side - From Out Here is a quiet and melancholic album, but with lots of temper and bite.
For pianist Søren Bebe, interplay and communication comes first. So it was a given, when he joined his trio in 2006, that the drummer would be Anders Mogensen. Mogensen has been a returning play-mate since Bebe's studies at the conservatory in Aarhus, where Mogensen taught. In 2006, Bebe met Niels Ryde at «Summersession» at Vallekilde Højskole, and a band was born.
Opposites attract, the old saying goes. I've always felt, that as a band- leader, you should try to use the musicians full potentials, and give them the freedom to be creative. The music should be personal, and everyone should be equally important Bebe says. This democratic approach gives life and bite to the album, where Bebes nordic, melodic tones and tastefull voicings meets Mogensens rhythmically strong and almost teasing drumming. Everything is held together by Rydes soft and full bass. The past 3 years has brought the trio a long line of concerts and even a tv-performance. Hence, it's a strong trio-sound that meets the listener on From Out Here....
