Jesper Lovdal

Jesper Løvdal is known for a warm sound on the tenorsaxophone, vitality and presence in his expression and a strong will to become one with the music. He is one of his generation's most diverse and remarkable talents with all of the jazz-history incorporated in his playing. The new CD from Lovedale, ”Grill Music”, (ILKCD122) is the group’s latest statement since the debutCD ”Lovedale” from 2004. In spite of having played together in this format for 6 years, the musicians still constantly challenge each other and with spontanity and a great appetite on music from all over the world, they have again recorded a very Lovedale-sounding CD. Free-spirit Lovemusic is a good name for the music, which also features US- trumpetplayer Cuong Vu. Being one oof the leading trumpetplayers of his generation with an unique sound and amazing energy, Cuong Vu has performed with Pat Metheny, David Bowie, Chris Speed and Dave Douglas. Bandleader Jesper Løvdal recieved the danish Bent Jædig-prize in 2005 for his convincing playing in all the expressions of jazz. The four members of Lovedale are personal composers, dedicated to play their own music, and they are all cornerstones in Lovedale’s warm sound and musical approach.
