NORTHWEST – September 2024 (Challenge Records)

Hoff Somsen Lindholm

Record Details


Jan Gunnar Hoff – Piano
Jasper Somsen – Double Bass
Carsten Lindholm – Drums

A brand new exciting trio has seen the light: Hoff Somsen Lindholm. The trio will perform at European festivals and clubs in 2023 and 2024. Jan Gunnar Hoff (NOR), Jasper Somsen (NL) and Carsten Lindholm (DK) share their love of Nordic Jazz, mixed with strong undercurrent of both the American Jazz tradition and European classical music. Besides that they also share a positive attitude in life, which reflects in their compositions and improvisations.

The first performances of Hoff Somsen Lindholm in Bayreuth (DE) and Bastia (Corsica, FR) were sold out. The trio will continue their concert series in 2024, in amongst others Norway, Denmark and Germany. Since the three musicians are well respected composers, their repertoire is a fine blend of their (newly) composed best music for this line up.

The Copenhagen album recordings (2023) will be released on September 24, 2024 (Challenge Records).
