Kluvers Big Band: Count on It / Live in Tivoli / Go Global

Read "Count on It / Live in Tivoli / Go Global" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Three more albums, these on the Inter Music label, by Denmark’s well–endowed Klüvers Big Band, on two of which ( Count on It, Live in Tivoli ) the ensemble chooses to hide its light under a bushel and play back–up to bluesy vocalists Carmen Bradford and Deborah Brown, respectively. On the third, Go Global, recorded (apparently ...

Not that Bjarnesen sings poorly; he’s ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
