Aggerbæk

International singer-songwriter ready with new album.

The past years, Benjamin Aggerbæks music has brought him around the world, and set the foundation for his three weekly openmic scenes in Copenhagen. Now Aggerbæk is ready with a new album, an album very much about a musician on the road.

Since 2006, Benjamin Aggerbæk has visited New York no less than 7 times to perform. In 2008 he was on a longer tour, also bringing him to Austin, Odessa and Chicago, and latest, in 2009, 11 shows in New York with his Aggerbæk Kvintet. Add to this three weekly openmic stages in Copenhagen, hosted by Benjamin, and you get the picture of a man on the road.

Even so, the summer of 2009 brought enought time to record a new album: «My Oh My» contains songs from the road, songs to and about women, about the tough love and about returning home. Because even though Benjamin has travelled the world with his music, Copenhagen of all cities, means the most to him: «No other city can give me as much inspiration. I only travel to come back to Copenhagen with new inspiration which I can inject into the pulse of the city.»

Benjamins sources of inspiration are as versatile as Louis Armstrong, Tom Waits, Led Zeppelin, Bach, Händel a.o. «I try to underline my inspirations clearly on this album. Not to copy or put myself next to them, but to give my version on how the inspiration can develop through me and my musicality

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
