|JAZZPAR Artists - Kim Kristensen|
Kim Kristensen (DK), b. 1956, was leading his group Ildvæverne - Flemming Agerskov (tp), Jesper Zeuthen (as, b-cl), Thomas Agergaard (ts, ss, fl), Kim Kristensen (p, synth, comp), Hans Andersson (b), Peter Danemo (d) - featuring Arkady Shilkloper (fr hrn) and Gustavo Toker (band) at The JAZZPAR Event 1993.
At the present stage of his development (1993) Kristensen's
primary search for inspiration is not directed towards the Afro-American
heritage of jazz. Instead he draws on classical and modern music, fusion,
the ECM sound, ethnic music, etc. In that respect he is working along
the same lines as a number of other excellent Scandinavian / European
musicians. Kristensen has for several years led his
own quintet, Ildvæverne (The Fire Weavers). Simultaneously
he contributed with some remarkable compositions to the repertoire of
The Danish Radio Big Band, New Music Orchestra and Jazzgruppe
90, three important larger groups of Copenhagen jazz life.
