This is the first release after Jeppe Zeeberg's award-winning debut album It's the Most Basic Thing You Can Do on a Boat (2014). Again Zeeberg's music draws on several musical genres from baroque through traditional jazz to classical avant-garde.
The compositions are arranged for a double trio consisting of two bassists and two drummers as well as the band leader himself on miscellaneous keyboard instruments. All musicians come from the Copenhagen and Berlin scenes for improvised music.
Zeeberg's music consists of a personal, complex mixture of open improvisation and composition. This is an uncompromising release but presented in a humorous and playful way. The music unfolds in a very lively and constantly changing, sonic landscape where all participants may join with new initiatives at any time – all kept within Zeeberg's characteristic and experimental style.
Danish piano player and composer. Jeppe is an innovative and energetic young piano player on the danish jazz scene. Playing a variety of musical genres from fully improvised jazz music to rock, he tries to keep up a personal approach to whatever he does. He is currently working mostly with his own bands The Roll-Ons and Dødens Garderobe plus the indie band Bird Alert. In all of those groups he works as a piano/keyboard player as well as a composer. His playing and composing are always based on an attempt to be original and stay away from compromises. Jeppe has made collaborations with a.o. saxophonists Andrew D’Angelo and John Tchicai, drummer Kresten Osgood and poets Peter Laugesen and T. S. Høeg.
