Jeppe Zeeberg

Jeppe Zeeberg was born in 1988. His style is a personal, uncompromising blend of genres, based in jazz and free improvisation. His first album in his own name, It's The Most Basic Thing You Can Do On A Boat (2014) was called "A beautiful, convincing proposal for how modern jazz or contemporary music may sound" by All About Jazz. The Danish Arts Council honored the album with an award naming it one of the seven best Danish releases in 2014.

In 2017 his third album, The Four Seasons, was released – also to positive reviews. Canadian Textura Magazine wrote: "It's impossible to know what the next piece will bring until it arrives, which is in itself something rare and worth celebrating. Whereas many a recording quickly lapses into predictability, Zeeberg's, which travels from Denmark to Memphis and New Orleans like it's the most natural thing in the world, offers one surprise after another."

Jeppe Zeeberg has a master's degree in music from Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen (2013). He is a member of the record label and musicians collective Barefoot Records and plays in the bands Dødens Garderobe, Kresten Osgood Quintet and Horse Orchestra. He has collaborated with international performers like John Tchicai, composed music for theater and dance performances, and co-organized events like John Cage's 100th Birthday Concert and the festival Moondog 100 År. As a solo pianist he has performed in Europe, America and Asia.

Jeppe Zeeberg: The Four Seasons

Read "The Four Seasons" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Any album self-described as 'experimental' is inevitably going to invite comparisons. The most obvious one applicable to pianist and composer, Jeppe Zeeberg might be Frank Zappa. But in fairness, Zeeberg's The Four Seasons, the third record under his own name, is mainly representative of his own unique and fertile imagination. Yes, there are occasional interspersions of Suzy Creamcheese-like spoken word and eerie sound effects and as with the erratic staccato opening of “Winter:Segway To Hell," a gradually evolving rhythmic pulse ...

The debut album of Danish pianist Jeppe Zeeberg, member of local groups Dødens Garderobe and Bird Alert, expands the concept of piano trio with two double bass players and two drummers, known for their versatility and improvisational skills.
