|JAZZPAR Artists - The Danish Radio Jazz Orchestra 1999|
The Danish Radio Jazz Orchestra (previously called The Danish Radio Big Band) participated in the JAZZPAR Events of 1990, 1995, 1997 and 1999.
With Prize Winner 1999, Martial Solal: One of the greatest
and most experienced big bands of today, the orchestra is a substantially
rejuvenated ensemble compared to The Danish Radio Big Band, as it was
called in 1990, the very first JAZZPAR year. The young and ambitious personnel
of the 1999 edition of the band identifyed itself with creative music
of today and were highly motivated to meet the challenges of contemporary
composers. In addition to their solo powers the members are some of our
most accomplished ensemble players. They had their hands full when Solal
arrived with original compositions, some of them written for this occasion
and performed in public for the first time at The JAZZPAR Concerts.
