JASPER SOMSEN GROUP - NEW ALBUM "Sardegna"
In January 2013 the second album "Sardegna" by the Jasper Somsen Group was released, via Challenge Records. Like their first album "Dreams, Thoughts & Poetry" (The Music of Enrico Pieranunzi), "Sardegna" was acclaimed highly in the international media. Sardinian trumpet player Paolo Fresu wrote in the liner notes a.o.:
“Another island yet to be discovered… An island created by passion, imagination and poetry. Akin to other migrants to Sardinia, exploring our island, so also does Jasper by releasing this album: being able to create new memories and to whisper new destinations in our ears.”
"From a musical perspective, Somsen and his group are a strong and varied team ... The band developed an independent, varied and distinct sound, which in terms of relaxation can’t be found at the other side of the Atlantic." - Olaf Maikopf (JazzThing)
The Jasper Somsen Group is world wide available for concerts in 2014-2015.
