Anne Mette Iversen Anne Mette Iversen

A former student in classical piano at The Royal Danish Academy of Music, Iversen went on to study bass for four years at the Rhythmic Conservatory of Music in Copenhagen, Denmark, and graduated in 2001 from The New School University with a BFA degree in Jazz Performance. Iversen has resided in New York City for eight years. During this time, in addition to leading her own groups, she has performed with many prominent artists including Terri Lyne Carrington, Ingrid Jensen, Ben Taylor, Nina Nastasia, Carly Simon, Don Sickler, Abraham Burton, Sam Yahel, Jeremy Pelt, Freddie Bryant, Marcus Strickland, Jason Lindner, Gary Versace, Geoff Kisor, Mike Moreno, Lea Delaria, Dena DeRose and many others. Iversen also freelances in many diverse settings, including classical orchestras. To say that she is thoroughly trained and experienced in many musical languages is an understatement.

As a composer Iversen has developed her own unique and personal style that has come out of a talent for unifying jazz music with European classical music. In addition to her compositional work for her own groups, she composed “Hvor er din bolig vidunderlig” for the 125 year anniversary of The Danish Church in New York. Another highlight was her being chosen to present music when Denmark hosted 120 United Nations ambassadors, the General Secretary Kofi Annan and Crown Prince of Denmark, His Royal Highness Prince Frederik, at a dinner at B.B

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.
