Album Description

Danish pianist/composer Jeppe Zeeberg's latest album, The Four Seasons, dealt with time. This album deals with space, how different spaces change performances. The music was recorded on different pianos, in different rooms, on three different continents. The album is a collage of recordings from travels, and the listener is constantly transported from one location to another. This is Zeeberg's take on a solo piano album. In his own words: "In my view, solo piano albums often have a tendency of repetitiveness. This is often a consequence of the music being recorded on one single piano over the course of a few hours. My album consists of various different keyboard instruments, with different tunings, recorded in fundamentally different situations over many months. The keyboards are often accompanied by other instruments and sounds, but every track is built around one specific piano improvisation or etude. This is why I still allow myself to call it a solo piano album. The worst crime a musician can commit is to make a boring album. I have really tried to avoid doing that." Eight Seemingly Unrelated Pieces of Piano Music is a collage of piano pieces, and like Zeeberg's earlier albums an eclectic mix of genres. It was recorded live as well as in the studio - on grand piano over church organ to the upright piano in Zeeberg's private study. Some sections are thoroughly composed and produced, others are stripped down improvisations. A modern take on a solo piano album, with respect for traditions and less respect for conventions.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
