Album Description

Henrik Olsson is a swedish guitarist and composer based in Copenhagen. He is a member of the improvising collective/record label Barefoot Records and is well established on the danish and international jazz/improvisation scene, where his playing have attracted attention through his own projects Penumbra Ensemble, The Hum, EHM as well as through various ad hoc contexts. His new project Hand of Benediction is a guitar-bass-drum trio and features two unique voices on the scene; drummer Rune Lohse and bass player Jeppe Skovbakke. This recording presents the trio as the main character in a semi-occult, electric freejazz-drama, where the narrative structure of Henrik Olsson´s compositions encompasses straightforwardness and wildness as well as poetic obscurity. Henrik Olsson´s debut album "Penumbra Ensemble" was very well received among the critics and was by All About Jazz called " a surreal vision, a deeply personal expression of avant-garde rock, jazz, world music and poetic soundscapes " and " Amazing, suggestive - a fascinating debut and an invigorating style denial " by the german magazine Jazz Podium. Rune Lohse is well known for his work with Horse Orchestra, Michael Rexen, and Klimaforandringer. Jeppe Skovbakke has toured and recorded with several generations of danish jazz musicians and a number of international soloists ranging from John Tchicai to Rhys Chatham.

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.
