GinmanBlachmanDahl is an exceptional trio on the Scandinavian jazz scene and were the first Danish group ever released by legendary Verve Records. "The Velvet Blues" is the trio's third release - and their first in collaboration with DALI.
The trio consists of three significant musical personalities and leading figures on the Danish music scene: Lennart Ginmann, Thomas Blachman & Carsten Dahl.
Wonderful, soothing, addictive (★★★★★★)
"...the trio plays so sensitive, sensual and swinging that I find myself smiling from start to finish, impressed and enthralled. Almost happy." - Ivan Rod, Gaffa.dk
From a tight, rhythmic pulsing swing beat to abstract, dissolving free structures, it is music of its time rooted in the classic, beguiling melancholy of jazz, yet simultaneously invoking a universal meeting among three virtuoso instrumentalists. It is an attempt to make time stand still, in a moment of utter selflessness in the service of music.
