Michael Gregory Jackson

 Art Ensemble Syd is playing with Michael Gregory Jackson in his Clarity Quartet

Michael Gregory Jackson is a legend among New York jazz musicians. He was a cornerstone in the New York loft jazz scene in the 70’s and 80’s, and has performed with the biggest names in jazz, pop, blues and improvised music – the many genres that have inspired his Clarity Quartet.

Drummer Kresten Osgood has joined Michael Gregory Jackson’s Clarity Quartet. Osgood is well known as one of the most important Danish jazz artists in the last three decades, his interplay with Jackson will be a mind-blowing experience!

“By the time he was twenty-one Michael Gregory Jackson was already one of the most original jazz guitarist to emerge since the Sixties.”
– Rolling Stone

“After Before is an excellent CD that steams with fresh spontaneous energy and variation, but also leaves place for spacious poetry and some surprising ballads featuring Jackson’s light-textured voice. ‪Especially remarkable is the organic spark that flows between the musicians, and Jackson’s very special, angular and virtuoso approach to the guitar adds a special personality to the recording.”

Art Ensemble Syd feat. Maher Mahmoud

Kulturer mødes og spændende musik opstår!


Art Ensemble Syd har inviteret den syriske oud-spiller og komponist Maher Mahmoud til en gensidig udforskning af musikalske kulturer.

Maher Mahmoud og Art Ensemble Syd går på musikalsk opdagelse i hinandens musiktraditioner og sammen genfortolker de deres forskellige musikalske ophav.
En række danske og nordiske folkesange bliver genfortolket i en arabisk tone på en bund af aktuel jazz. Syriske folkesange og Maher Mahmouds egne kompositioner bliver omformede og præget af en nordisk tone.
