Simon Toldams Orchestra STORK

Intriguing compositions and collective improvisations goes hand in hand on the self titled debut-album by Simon Toldam new Orchestra STORK.
Toldam - the piano player from Han Bennink Trio - gathered the orchestra spring 2010, choosing some of the best and most original musicians on the danish Jazz/Avantgarde – scene. All of whom have been leading figures, creating new waves in danish jazz the past 20 years.
Simon Toldam ́s natural orchestration talent is sparkling in this orchestra. All compositions are written for the specific musicians, highlighting the extreme amount of personality and original sound. In their own anarchistic respectfulness, the musicians transform Toldams music into intense tableaux’s celebrating the moment.
