GORM ASKJÆR

GORM ASKJÆR TRIO

GA (gt), Jens Mikkel Madsen (b), Thomas Eiler (drums)


With this trio I have found the perfect home for my guitar playing and compositions in interplay with two great musicians, who I've been playing with for many years. The trio format gives us the space to play with the tunes in a free way, and we enjoy playing fixed compositions with an open approach. We mostly play original compositions but some jazz standards and other materials also find their way into the mix.

GORM ASKJÆR SECRET SAFARI

Kasper Tranberg (trp), Christian Vuust (sax), GA (gt), Thomas Sejthen (b),

Morten Nottelman (drums)


This group had its debut in the fall of 2016. Exciting compositions with a lot of different inspirations and a bunch of fantastic musicians to execute them. Among other things I am trying to use orchestral composition techniques in a small group setting.

THE GREAT SILVER BEAUTY BOX

Misc. musicians


This is a name, I have used for different crossover projects with groups consisting of both classically trained and improvising musicians. The setup and musicians can change but the musical idea is consistent in that I always try to find a common ground for the musicians, while at the same time expressing aspects of my soundworld.
