Universal Quartet was founded in August 2008 by trumpeter Kasper Tranberg and drummer Kresten Osgood – two strong voices on the European jazz scene today. With their new release Light released on ILK Music they continue their historic collaboration with american master musicians Adam Rudolph and Yusef Lateef.

This unique recording was recorded and produced during two days in Copenhagen. Not just a blowing session but a creative work of art with strong compositional textures, rhythmic explorations and mindblowing improvisations. Add to that a string of heartfelt “ballads” and the touching storytelling-vocal of Brother Yusef Lateef. The musical point of departure is the relation between the sound of wood, skin and metal – an instrumentation as old as mankind. It is in the meeting between these primeval sounds that wind players Lateef and Tranberg on the one side and percussionists Osgood and Rudolph on the

other creates a timeless sound that portrays both Man’s natural limitations as well as the notion that music is a supernatural entity which enables us human beings to rise above our inbred inhibitions.
