Danish pianist Kathrine Windfeld made her debut at Watermill Jazz with her big band last year to great acclaim and she makes a welcome return this year with a handpicked sextet of leading young Scandinavian musicians.
Her compositions thrive on a rare combination of delicacy and strength - a colourful meeting of sophisticated harmonic passages, driving grooves and poetic ballads. It’s easy to see why her big band releases Aircraft and Latency have been such a success.
Expect music that combines tradition and modernity, played with breathtaking intensity.
