Drummer and composer Kasper Tom has assembled a group of significant, international musicians from the European jazz scene. The band is put together in an attempt to create a new sound of original compositions that require and challenge each musician’s individuality and artistic identity. The band covers a wide musical spectrum, from catchy melodies to complex structures and expressive construction and deconstruction of the material. Seriousness and oddity reign together, the music exudes innovation and creativity and pushes the boundaries without forgetting tradition.
Kasper Tom 5 is a band with a serious take on “Danish jazz” as of 2013.
