Radio Bévort: Which Craft?

Read "Which Craft?" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Pernille Bévort, the Danish saxophonist/composer and singer, has been quietly working her musical charms for over twenty years, as both a mainstay of the Danish big-band scene and leader of impressive small ensembles. Following the stripped-down, straight-ahead Trio Temptations (Gateway Music, 2014), Bévort rekindles her Radio Bévort project, whose Perfect Organisation (Gateway 2011)--with bandoneon player Marcello ...

The instrumentation, however, is secondary to the intent, for had the sextet assembled with objet trouvé instead, the results would likely have been equally arresting. The Pierette Ensemble's debut recording may stem from ...

Bévort 3: Trio Temptations

Read "Trio Temptations" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Of late, multi-reed player, singer, composer and arranger Pernille Bévort has alternated between the elegant, quirky jazz of the Bévort/Schmidt quartet, and Radio Bévort, a jazz/tango project with bandoneon player Marcelo Nisinman or accordionist Francesco Cali. Playground + 1 (Calibrated, 2007) with Schmidt and Perfect Organisation (Gateway, 2011) with Nisinman represent only part of Bévort's talents, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
