Grøn (Danish for green) is rooted in the tradition of collective improvisation with Walsdorff’s boppish melody lines while Melbye and Tom’s use of free meters and rubato playing propels the music forward. The trio hitches a ride on a wave of energy that enables the three to draw on their wide experience with improvised music to create a sound scape where jazz, improv and spectrality melt into a single whole.
Berlin-based Henrik Walsdorff is a member of Alexander Von Schlippenbach’s Globe Unity Orchestra. Kasper Tom and Adam Pultz Melbye are both members of the Danish label and collective Barefoot Records. The three musicians have performed with legendary improvisers from across the world.
