There are many different kinds of trios. Some make more noise than a big band. Others are sophisticated, innovative or challenging. Ibrahim Electric is all of this – and more. One of Denmark’s – and by now Scandinavia’s – most popular jazz units, Ibrahim Electric has expanded their audience from hardcore jazz aficionados to rock fans. Young people of all ages flock to the trio’s concerts, attracted by the energy and imagination of this organ trio.
Organist Jeppe Tuxen, guitarist Niclas Knudsen and drummer Stefan Pasborg wade in the borderlands of jazz, rock, Afro and funk, looking for new paths through the jungle. They find inspiration in the music of Eddie Harris, Tony Williams Lifetime, Jimmy McGriff, Fela Kuti, Ali Fakar Touré, Jimi Hendrix, Albert King, Booker T & the MG’s…. Their focus is on energy, fat sound and raw groove.
This is Ibrahim Electric’s fourth CD, and another hot, hot, hot, live recording with the trio featuring once again American trombonist Ray Anderson.. Ray Anderson is considered one of jazz music’s most important trombonists. A six-time winner of Downbeat’s poll, he appears to have no technical limitations, and his roaming imagination is a perfect fit for Ibrahim Electric’s musical universe.
