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 2016, Barefoot Records presents 18 concerts at the cozy Christianshavns Beboerhus, a vibrant cultural meeting point in the heart of Christianshavn. 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 over 14 different countries. This year’s programme includes international virtuosos such as Chris Heenan (US), Alexander von Schlippenbach (DE), Pat Thomas (UK), Susana Santos Silva (PT) and Yasuhiro Yoshigaki (JP).
“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 6 musicians from Denmark, Norway and Poland. As well as organising concerts, Barefoot Records also functions as a record label with a catalogue of 50 albums to date.
Christianshavns Beboerhus has been one of the hot-spots in Copenhagen for exciting and improvised jazz for many years. The atmospheric community house has been the stage of many of the world’s leading improvisers while keeping a down-to-earth vibe, selling inexpensive beer, wine, drinks, coffee and cakes.
The concerts are sponsored by The Danish Art Council, JazzDanmark, Copenhagen Municipality, DJBFA and the Danish Musician’s Union.
