In an attempt to characterize the musical fare of pianist Rasmus Kjær the most significant is his openness and curiosity combined with a profound and personal relationship to the piano.
Most vivid is his collaboration with internationally renowned orchestra Under Byen, with whom he �� besides touring in USA, Canada and Europe �� has participated on the albums “Alt er tabt” and “Siamesisk”.
He released his first record in his own name called “Broken Bow” in 2012. It features two of the most innovative and respected jazz musicians on Danish ground Kresten Osgood and Jonas Westergaard.
Copenhagen Jazz Festival wrote: ”Rasmus Kjær �� the talented pianist from the band Under Byen has put together a strong trio with drummer Kresten Osgood and bass player Jonas Westergaard. Originally inspired by a pianist like Ahmad Jamal, Kjær is a strong- minded musician with an almost indiepoeticlike expression”.
