A friend of mine alerted me to the piano of Morten Ravn Hansen, who lives in Denmark. Having spent several weeks hitchhiking through the countryside of Denmark in 1979, I completely understand and relate to Morten's creative approach.
On the three originals available as downloads, Morten plays a distinct style of jazz that is both bouncy and brooding. His originals remind me of the country's quiet scenery, temperamental skies and homemade jams. I lived on those preserves each time I was picked up and taken home to a driver's home for a full family lunch. In Denmark, there's a special kindness by strangers that doesn't exist anywhere else.
At any rate, all of Denmark's spirit rests in the music of Morten's North Sails. You can sample the tracks and download them here.
