Info for Idyl

Rather beautiful this poetic solo guitar album from Danish player Casper Hejlesen. Just 23, from northern Jutland, he studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, Amsterdam Conservatory and the Jazz Institute of Berlin and is completing a jazz masters in Trondheim. Influenced by Jakob Bro, Julian Lage, Kurt Rosenwinkel and Ted Greene there's a lot of poise and weight in these balladic tracks some of which neatly fold in quite ambiently atmospheric overdubs and sport strong sonic production values. Hejlesen debuted four years ago with the album Overture. On the upcoming album there's a beautifully harmonised version of the standard 'Body and Soul' one of the highlights here as is the highly endearing 'Waltz van Amsterdam'.

Casper Hejlesen, guitar

Casper Hejlesen
is a danish price winning guitarist and composer based in Aalborg. He finds his inspiration in modern guitar players such as Reinier Baas, Pedro Martins, Jakob Bro, Kurt Rosenwinkel etc, but also finds a lot of inspiration in the indie-pop and folk-scene with artists such as Andy Shauf and Mac DeMarco. Casper is currently working on finishing music for his up-comming debut album, which will feature some of the finest young musicians of Denmark. This day he will be performing with his "Aalborg Band", which consists of students at the conservatory.

This album contains no booklet.
