Niko Langenhuisen Trio / Nikolaj Bentzon Trio

 Niko Langenhuisen shows off his talent on both piano and double bass - an unusual combination if there ever was one — and does it in a style all his own. This rhythm expert uses the piano like a percussion instrument, and favours generous harmonic progressions that don't skimp on melodic content. No drums here: just Langenhuisen, Anton Goudsmit on guitar, and Jasper Blom on tenor sax, all from the Netherlands.

They've just hit 30 and already they've cut four excellent albums and been awarded numerous prizes, as a group and individually, both in Denmark and around the world. Often compared to Monty Alexander and Oscar Peterson, pianist-composer Nikolaj Bentzon favours punchy rhythms and well-honed melodies. Bass player Thomas Ovesen and drummer Jonas Johansen have been with him since 1989. Three champions of modern jazz with a great program in store.
