Hold your horses

Bio

Horse Orchestra is a Copenhagen-based septet consisting of musicians from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Iceland. The band's spectacular music combines elements from different parts of the history of jazz with boundary-pushing experiments and free improvisation. Classical compositions from 1920's New Orleans and Chicago meet 1960's free jazz (with detours to all sorts of musical movements such as baroque music) and creates an original, post-modern, and not least humorous style.

Horse Orchestra's debut album "Living The Dream" has recieved much critical acclaim and won two awards at the Danish Music Awards Jazz 2015: "Special release of the year" and "New name of the year".

The band consists of:

Erik Kimestad Pedersen, trumpet
Ingimar Andersen, saxophones
Petter Hängsel, trombone
Kristian Tangvik, tuba
Jeppe Zeeberg, piano
Nicolai Kaas Claesson, bass
Rune Lohse, drums
