Per Carsten Solo
Releases date: 17-11-2014
Kresten Osgood presents the solo effort of one of Denmarks most original voices: EWI master Per Carsten. The album has liner notes by the legendary trumpetplayer/composer Palle Mikkelborg, former music chief of Montmartre Niels Chistensen and Osgood himself who doesn't hesitate to call this a postmodern jazz manifesto
Per Carsten has had a long and successful carrier as member of the Danish Radio Big Band, for which he also composed and arranged. He participated in the legendary collaboration with Miles Davis and Palle Mikkelborg "Aura" and released a handful of fusion oriented albums in the 1980 ́s and ́90 ́s. After battling a terrible cancer it became impossible for him to play the alto sax and flute (up until then his main instruments) and he began practicing the EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument) on which he succeeded in creating a completely unique sound.
