Sinne Eeg & Thomas Fonnesbæk

Entry: DKK 200, – plus 10, – i gebyr
Eeg-Fonnesbæk
A duo only with vocal and bass pairs danish jazz singer Sinne Eeg with danish bassist Thomas
Fonnesbæk. Purposely intended to feature Sinne in an open and bare setting and as a
departure from her previous lush recordings. Sinne’s voice has a lush timbre that marries
perfectly with Fonnesbæk’s warm bass sound.
Eeg and Fonnesbæk listen intensely and inspire each other to take chances. But spontaneity,
communication and interpretation is, after all, the essence of jazz. The two are like dancers
who are finely tuned and responsive to each others every gesture. The results are simply
captivating.
Sinne eeg
sinne eegs distinctive vocals have earned her a loyal and rapidly growing fan base in her
native country of denmark and around the world. Considered the preeminent jazz vocalist in
scandinavia, sinne has already made her mark in the usa, japan, china, and throughout
europe with her exquisite live performances and award- winning studio recordings.
As a singer she is influenced by Nancy Wilson, Betty Carter and Sarah Vaughan, but adds her
own personal touch of soft darkness influenced by scandinavian melancholy. Even without a
drummer to keep time or a pianist to play chords, Sinne retains all her artistry and
interpretive powers.
Among the prizes and awards Sinne has won in her career are the danish radio jazz award in
2009, and the prestigious ben webster prize in 2014. She is a 4 times winner of the danish
music award (an equivalent to the american grammy) for best vocal jazz album of the year.
In 2014. Additionally in 2015, the academie du jazz (frances top 60 critics) honored face the
music with one of europes most distinguished awards.
Thomas Fonnesbæk
thomas Fonnesbæk is an award winning, in-demand danish bass player who has appeared on
more than 100 cds. Through the last years fonnesbæk has evolved to one of the best and in
demand bass players in the world playing and recording with other top artists such as Enrico
Pieranunzi, Justin Kauflin, Lars Jansson, Sinne eeg, Monty Alexander, Arron Parks and many
others.
Fonnesbæk has synesthesia (the ability to see music as colors in his mind). Combined with
equillibristic skills on his instrument this make him a remarkable musician. There are no
weaknesses in Thomas Fonnesbæks playing. A strong melodic, harmonic and rhythmic sense
makes him a complete musician. As a composer he is influenced by both the scandinavian
melancholy and the american jazz tradition
