Barefoot Records @ H15 – Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2017
If you are looking for smooth bossa nova, lovely swing tunes or velvety vocals, look somewhere else. Barefoot Records will inject your summer nights with a nutritious formula of experimental and adventurous music.
Since its inception in 2006 the musicians collective Barefoot Records has been making its mark as one of the most important concert organisers in Copenhagen, presenting great music from the alternative side of the city’s vibrant jazz scene.
During Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2017, Barefoot Records will present 26 concerts at the new venue H15, a vibrant cultural meeting point in the heart of Copenhagen. The program presents some of the strongest and most exciting musicians the contemporary Danish jazz scene has to offer, in addition to a strong line-up of guests from all over the world. This year’s programme includes international virtuosos such as Liudas Mockunas (LT), Alexander von Schlippenbach (DE), Rudi Mahall (DE) and Marcela Lucatelli (IT).
“One of the most interesting new labels in Danish jazz” is how the American magazine All About Jazz describes Barefoot Records. The collective consists of 7 musicians from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Poland. As well as organising concerts, Barefoot Records also functions as a record label with a catalogue of more than 50 albums to date.
The concerts are sponsored by The Danish Art Council, JazzDanmark, Copenhagen Municipality, DJBFA, Vesterbro Lokaludvalg and the Danish Musician’s Union.
