Biographie Søren Kristiansen & Thomas Fonnesbæk

Søren Kristiansen & Thomas Fonnesbæk
Søren Kristiansen
belongs in the absolute elite of Danish jazz musicians. While still young he broke unto the scene and was deservedly hailed as Denmark's greatest piano talent. Søren Kristiansen has played with Jesper Thilo's bands and accompanied dozens of great American musicians, from Harry Sweets Edison to James Moody. During the last ten years Søren Kristiansen has made his mark as our perhaps greatest solo pianist. His playing channels piano masters such as Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans and Art Tatum. It is original, played with fantastic skill, and incredibly swinging when Søren Kristiansen leafs through the Great American Song Book.

Thomas Fonnesbaek
Thomas bass playing creates a foundation for the songs with a dancing, rhythmic insistence that takes one prisoner, but with an elegance, responsiveness, and sensitivity that accommodates great attention to detail. Over the years, he’s played his way into the upper echelon of elites, collaborating with international stars including Monty Alexander, Christian Sands, Justin Kauflin, Aaron Parks, John Taylor, Helge Lien, Paolo Fresu, Lars Jansson, and Adam Baldych. The list of Danes he’s played with goes on forever – Thomas is often the “first call” bassist in the Kingdom. On Stunt Records, he can be heard as one half of a collaboration with the singer Sinne Eeg (EEG/FONNESBÆK – an album that won the Danish Music Award as Jazz Album Of The Year in 2017), as well as with pianist Ole Kock Hansen on FINE TOGETHER – NORDIC MOODS, and as a member of the Thomas Clausen Trio.
