Celebrated and praised by critics and audiences alike as a torchbearer of Scandinavian jazz akin to the likes of Esbjörn Svensson and Tord Gustavsen, Danish pianist Søren Bebe proudly presents his trio’s seventh studio album. ‘Here Now’ is set to release on the 17th of November.

Founded in 2007, the Søren Bebe Trio have cemented themselves as a cornerstone of European jazz with performances at leading festivals and venues in Hong Kong, South Korea, Morocco, Brazil, Poland, the USA and Denmark.

Here Now’ follows the critical acclaim of their 2019
release ‘Echoes’ and marks a new era for the trio,
welcoming Norwegian drummer Knut Finsrud
into the ensemble for the first time alongside bassist Kasper Tagel.

Seeking inspiration from his heroes of past and present including Tord Gustavsen, Espen Eriksen, Misha Alperin and Jan Johansson, Bebe explores narrative themes of slowing down and seeking presence and gratitude through delicate melodies and a folk-like simplicity.

Having recently moved to a small village in Denmark with his family surrounded by woods, lakes and farmland, the quiet, contemplative and spacious tone of ‘Here Now’ is reflective of Bebe’s newfound pace of life and surroundings.

Introspective and melancholic in tone, Bebe’s compositions usher the listener through intricately woven chord progressions and familiar song-like structures with intensity and tranquility. Steadfast grooves decorated with rich percussion timbres dissolve into rubato passages of openness across 10 original compositions that are maturely confident in their subtlety.

The trio will be celebrating the release of ‘Here Now’ with tours of Denmark and abroad in the winter of 2023 and throughout 2024

“Det er jazzy mindfulness. Lyden er vanvittig god. Musikken følger med. Det er ro til sjælen. Det er musik med et helende perspektiv. Smukt.” 

(Niels Overgård, JazzNyt)

 

 

Den danske jazzpianist og komponist Søren Bebe grundlagde sin trio tilbage i 2007. Den 17. november 2023 udgiver de deres syvende studie album med titlen ‘Here Now’. Det er smuk og melodisk musik med tid og ro til at trække vejret og nyde hver enkelt tone. 

 

Denne gang er det den norske trommeslager Knut Finsrud, som sidder bag trommerne, og ligesom ved de sidste to udgivelser er det Kasper Tagel der trakterer kontrabassen. 

 

Efter det stærkt anmelderroste album ‘Echoes’ fra 2019 har gruppen holdt en velfortjent pause, men er altså nu tilbage med ny musik og fejrer udgivelsen af ‘Here Now’ med koncerter i Danmark og Europa.

 

Gennem årene har trioen givet et væld af koncerter over det meste af verden fra Brasilien til Korea over USA og Marokko og har formået at opbygge en støt stigende og særdeles loyal fanskare. På Spotify lytter over 100.000 med på trioens musik hver måned, hvor alle de største jazz playlister har trioens numre liggende side om side med jazzens verdensklasse musikere som Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau og Bobo Stensson. 

 

Med deres nye album ‘Here Now’ markerer Søren Bebe Trio sig igen som sværvægtere indenfor den nordiske jazz. Melankolien og klangskønheden er i højsædet, og trioen formår som ingen andre at få hver enkelt tone til at tælle. Eller som en anmelder skriver: “Søren Bebe mestrer melodikunsten til perfektion og trækker fra sin kulturs folklore. ‘Here Now’ er et yndefuldt, elegant, poetisk album af underspillet rigdom.” (6 af 6 stjerner, Thierry De Clemensat, Bayou Blue Radio/Paris-Move)
