Soren Bebe

Based in Copenhagen and a leading pianist on the European jazz and contemporary music scene, Søren Bebe is most often compared to fellow Northern Europeans, Tord Gustavsen and the late Esbjörn Svensson. Ask Søren who has influenced him and the names that come up will likely be Oscar Peterson, then Keith Jarrett and, more recently, Aaron Parks. As for non-pianists, his number one would be Kenny Wheeler. But ultimately, Søren’s delicacy of touch – both as composer and pianist – is, of course, his own.

“Bebe certainly belongs to the tradition of lyrical pianists that goes from Erroll Garner and Bill Evans through Keith Jarrett. What Bebe adds to the lyrical tradition of the piano is a sense of folk-like simplicity, with mourning melodies blossoming like shy night-flowers” All About Jazz (US)
