“It is remarkable how Stefan Pasborg, even in the oddest of meters, keeps the pot at the boiling point and creates an explosive energy” - Berlingske Tidende.
Take a handful of original compositions and add a bit of Duke Ellington and Ornette Coleman... Mix it in a big pot together with Balkan and New Orleans influences. Add elements from Afro, Avantgarde and Jazz, and serve this ’dish’ hot together with 5 excellent musicians – four horns and a drummer! – then you’ll get a blend, which approximately shows what this band will deliver!
Because this is not an ordinary horn-orchestra, and not a traditional repertoire! This is an orchestra which consists of five individualists who, without any compromizes, avoids all concepts or conventions by using several genres as their musical platform. This meltingpot of different music cultures, performed by some of Scandinavias leading young jazz musicians, makes PASBORG's ODESSA 5 a live experience above the ordinary!
The orchestra consists of musicians from a handful of other very popular Danish orchestras f.ex.: Ibrahim Electric, Anderskov Accident, Toxikum, Phoenix City, DR Big Band, New Jungle Orchestra.
