Uffe Steen

Born:

Danish guitar-virtuoso and local hero, Uffe Steen, is slowly but surely making his presence felt on the internet with his absolutely breathtaking chops and imaginative playing. As a lefty, growing up with only a right hand guitar around, Steen wasted no time – he just flipped it and got busy playing upside down. By the time he learned that the strings were supposed to go the other way, he was already neck-deep in developing his own style. This pragmatic approach to the instrument might be part of what makes his playing so unique. As a young man, Steen actually studied the clarinet, not the guitar, at the Royal Academy of Music in Denmark. Luckily for us, he chose to devote his attention to the guitar after finishing his studies

Jens Jefsen: Music Between Gigs

Read "Music Between Gigs" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Danish bassist Jens Jefsen returns with another bass-centric album which is definitely not “solo bass," a sequel to A Secret Sigh (Gateway Music, 2016). Like the previous album the music emphasizes melody--which Jefsen finds in standards, modern pop songs and his originals--and varied, colorful arrangements. Jefsen's “Esto Es Lo Mio" opens the set with a sprightly ...

Uffe Steen: Retroscope

Read "Retroscope" reviewed by Jim Worsley


Every once in a while it happens. You never know when. You never who its going to be. Listening to a lot of music increases the odds. Still, one can go a stretch before experiencing that “moment." Hats off to Danish guitarist Uffe Steen for providing such a treat for the ear and for the human ...

Jens Jefsen: A Secret Sigh

Read "A Secret Sigh" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Veteran Danish bassist Jens Jefsen could be a one-man band, but instead he accomplishes a rare feat here: a bass-centric recording that does not sound like a “bass album." Each track includes multiple bass parts--pizzicato and arco--along with percussive bass sounds and other percussion by Jefsen. While this description may sound like an endless bass solo, ...

Indra: Heartland

Read "Heartland" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard


The idea of the journey is a motif that is often found in music. If you go back to the blues, gospel and old-time music, these are musical traditions that are filled with songs about restless people on the road, trains, cars and feet moving through a landscape. It can be a physical journey, moving from ...

Uffe Steen / Adam Nussbaum / Lennart Ginman: Play

Read "Play" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Guitarist Uffe Steen is one unmelancholy Dane. If that sounds like a left–handed compliment, well, he does play left–handed. And does he ever Play! Bluesy cascades of sound, single–note or chordal, fly off his fretboard like squadrons of worker bees beaming in on one’s verdant flower garden. This concert performance in Aarhus catches Steen’s trio (bassist ...

Uffe Steen: Play

Uffe Steen, the 47-year-old Danish guitarist, rips it up on this new live record, culled from three European performances in mid-September of last year. Steen is joined by his countryman Lennart Ginman on double bass and none other than Adam Nussbaum on drums. Nussbaum, of course, has logged many hours backing major American axemen like Mike ...

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!
