Simon Toldam at Pizza Express LONDON

  • Pizza Express 10 Dean Street London, W1D 3RW United Kingdom

The music in Simon Toldam Trio marks those little eternities when we forget who we are, and does so with a palette of tones and rhythms that take the trio from knotty avant-garde to pensive ballads, from mysterious tinkling to jubilant swings, from the lullabies of a dreamed-of childhood to the timeless here and now.

It is one of the most acclaimed and versatile trios from Denmark, and the line-up is completed with drummer Knut Finsrud (NO) and bass player Nils Davidsen, who both are (and has been the last twenty years) major players on the vibrant Scandinavian jazz/avantgarde-scene. Whether parading or drifting, noising or silencing, the interplay between these three displays their uncanny ability to beat and blow as one organism.

Simon Toldam Trio´s debut-album "Sunshine Sunshine or Green as Grass" from 2012 was proclaimed as a masterpiece from several jazz critics , and since then the trio has continued their musical path, lately culminating in the acclaimed duology LOOK UP, consisting of “LOOK UP 14” (from 2014) & “LOOK UP 15” (from 2015), the latter being nominated as “Album of the year” at Danish Music Awards Jazz. All albums released on the leading Danish label of contemporary jazz music and beyond: ILK Music
