Following the release of Neck of the Woods, released in 2011, we’re very pleased to announce that Norwegian Tuba player Daniel Herskedal is set to continue his relationship with Edition Records with a new trio album due for release in Spring 2015.
Featuring fellow Norwegian musicians Eyolf Dale on piano and Helge Andreas Norbakken on percussion, the trio will also be joined by Norway’s leading string chamber orchestra, the Trondheim Soloists.
Daniel Herskedal is an instrumentalist and composer who has defied the conventions of the tuba. He has pushed the boundaries both technically and sonically and created a spellbinding and mesmerising sound. Based in Copenhagen, Herskedal has performed with many different projects and bands throughout Europe including Django Bates, City Stories, Magic Pocket and Trondheim Jazz Orchestra but it wasn’t until 2011 when he released ‘Neck of the Woods’ with saxophonist Marius Neset that the world really took notice and pushed his name to the forefront as a world class soloist.
‘Norwegian tuba player Daniel Herskedal is nothing short of a miracle, which is mainly brought about by his perfect mastery of the instrument’. JAZZENZO
