Kasper Villaume Quartet: Outrun (2008)

This was the Kasper Villaume's first cd as a leader. It features the quartet about which a music critic wrote: "This goes to show the raw strength of young Danish jazz!" Kasper Villaume Quartet is rooted in the great American tradition from the '60s, and with immense energy, intensity and impressive skills the young star shines behind the piano in close interplay with con- genial partners. "Outrun" fulfils the unusually great expectations regarding Villaume and his quartet. Villaume's own compositions form the basis, and the quartet plays with breadth of view and great sense of dynamism and gives an energetic, rhythmically free and spellbinding idea of what modern quartet jazz can sound like.
