Klabbes Bank are a group that are taking the four letter word out of jazz. A shining beacon of the new Scandinavian young jazz sound, they’ve blown off the cobwebs and ignited a whole new generations interest in a genre that is often criminally overlooked by the mainstream press, yet has so much to offer. Mixing, at times, electronic elements with haunting minimalist piano, then moving on to uptempo drums and even a swing vibe, Klabbes Bank are making their mark in a big way. Along with the other young upstars such as Portico Quartet and Polar Bear, Klabbes Bank really have the potential to introduce and inspire a new age.
Catch them tonight at Matt & Phreds, 9.30pm, £5.
