their self titled debut album (2006), and follow-ups Music Speaks Louder Than
Words (2008), Driftin' (2011) and Colortones
(2015) Danish group Jamhunters are back with Nightclub
Supportive members of the new project are the musicians Christina Boelskifte (vocals),
Klaus Menzer (drums), and Peter Hansen (bass). All tunes are composed, arranged and produced by the
creative duo Lars Fabiansen (guitars) and Peter Michael (grand
Jamhunters introduce into the album with Welcome to the
Nightclub, an atmospheric prologue. The Palm Tree - Part II
ties up to Under The Palmtree from the album Driftin'
with a contemplative jazz excursion. A more eclectic approach
compared to the mainstream of the original.
Practice is essential for every musician to achieve routine
and mastery. Based on the concrete piece, the playful progress of
all musicians involved is reflected in the laid-back performance.
The organic voice of Christina Boelskifte on Morning Song
allures with sweetness and is impressively embedded in the lyrical
play of the group.
The 3rd Gate presents an intimate swing session with a
wonderful acoustic attitude. Peter Hansen on upright bass and Klaus
Menzer with brushes on snare drum underline Lars Fabiansen's superb
guitar performance. Around a Roundabout is inspired by The
Doors hit Riders On The Storm and Herbie Hancock's
Cantaloupe Island mixed with jazzy craftsmanship and a big
potion of elegance.
In a Lifetime shines with an infectious and captivating
spirit inflamed by jazz vocalist Christina Boelskifte. The aptly
titled Slow Motion heightens the perception of the
otherwise unheard sweet soft undertones. Close
to Your Eyes swings in the style of Joe Pass. Lars Fabiansen
is incredibly lyrical in his chord phrasing and Peter Michael has
the ultimate piano touch. Together they are transcending from swing
Compared to their previous releases Jamhunters have decided to walk
with Nightclub the jazz line. Keeping jazz alive is the
cornerstone of this release, a new face of this multifaceted group.
