* * * AN EVENING WITH 3 STARS * * *
Singer BOBO MORENO performs with pianist OLE KOCK HANSEN and bass player BO STIEF. A Danish trio of well established world class musicians – three highly experienced artists and virtuosos. This trio has in recent years built a strong following on the Danish music scene, having given many well received concerts. August 2010 saw the release of their CD 50 Ways which was met with nothing but high praise in their home country as well as abroad.
The trio's repertoire is culled from a broad selection of songs and genres, each song of great value to the three artists. Several of these songs have profound messages, and have all been carefully selected. Songs are interpreted into deeply personal versions, bearing the trios original fingerprints. Bobo Moreno's playful, musical vocals are featured here in a way properly suited to his impressive talents. In each other's company, the three musicians have created a style that is inviting, entertaining and down-to-earth, making room at the same time for tuneful, soulful and masterful music.
Since the mid sixties Ole Kock Hansen and Bo Stief have enjoyed a high standing on the Danish and international music scene. Openminded and versatile they have performed with a virtual who's-who-list of music icons, such as Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Toots Thielemans, Ben Webster, Dexter Gordon, Chet Baker, Sanne Salomonsen, to name but a few.
So, what is their sound? Well...
It's not exactly jazz, but then again...maybe a little bit.
It's not exactly soul, although some of the songs...definitely!
It's a bit pop...sometimes.
It's Bobo, Ole and Bo playing their favorite songs!
Musicality, sincerity, involvement, fun, playfulness, audience interaction. These are all words that fittingly describe this trio and their entertaining top class show. Three world famous Danish musicians in a trio, playing music that speaks to everybody.
