At this years jazzfestival legendary drummer and improviser Paul Lovens will be visiting Copenhagen on invitation from guitarist Mark Solborg. Lovens has been among the central figures of the european jazz and improv scene for half a century. His intense and playfull approach to the music is truly one of a kind and always makes for exceptional artistic integrity. As a regular member of the legendary Alexander Von Schlippenbach Trio with Evan Parker and in collaborations with Axel Dörner, Thomas Lehn, Lotte Anker, Globe Unity Orchestra, Eugene Chadbourne, Peter Brötzman, Cecil Taylor, Joelle Leandre and many, many others he has knocked listeners all over the world off their feet. http://www.efi.group.shef.ac.uk/mlovens.html

ILK welcomes Lovens to the 5e stage, where he will be the center of a 2 day residence, July 8th and 9th, performing with various artists from the label a.o.

In April 2018 Solborg formed a beautiful trio with Lovens and Portuguese trumpet-comet Susana Santos Silva for concerts in Denmark. Among other things live to Carl Th. Dreyers infamous movie Vampyr at sold out events in Cinemateket. Now the three meet again for new adventures in Copenhagen – and this night they have invited exquisite danish reedman Lars Greve to join them for a meeting of kindred spirits across borders and generations at the 5e festival hotspot.
