"Kathrine Windfeld is a rising star on the European jazz scene, not least for her bold writing for her adventurous big band”

Jazzwise Magazine

Windfeld‘s original compositions and explosive arrangements are a rare combination of delicacy and strength. Using a colourful palette of sophisticated harmonic passages, driving grooves and poetic ballads, she enriches the traditional jazz ensemble sound with a new spirit. With her critically acclaimed two big band releases, ‘Aircraft’ (2014) and ‘Latency’ (2017), Kathrine Windfeld's name has fast become known, well beyond the borders of her Scandinavian home.

Windfeld has handpicked a sextet of young and excellent Scandinavian musicians, who effortlessly combine playful precision with enthusiastic power and improvisatory prowess.

In addition to touring with her own ensembles, Kathrine Windfeld is an in-demand guest composer, leading to highly acclaimed collaborations with the Danish Radio Big Band and the Frankfurt Radio Big Band, with whom she performed two radio broadcast concerts in 2018. Her ambitious work has also inspired international greats such as Mike Stern, Seamus Blake and Gilad Hekselman to share a stage with her.

“Windfeld's band of leading young Scandinavian musicians is as tight and sharp as any you'll hear" The Guardian
