Birmingham Jazz presents

There’s more quality jazz coming to the Jewellery Quarter.

There’s an international flavour to Friday’s offering at 1,000 Trades when Danish bassist Henrik Jensen leads his own quartet Followed By Thirteen, which he founded in 2010. His compositions are thoughtful, playful, bursting with energy, at times melancholic and there is space in the arrangements, room for each member of the quartet to express themselves.

The group released their second album Blackwater in September 2016, which featured Andre Canniere-trumpet, Esben Tjalve-piano, and Antonio Fusco-drums. Blackwater has received some outstanding reviews including the Guardian and the Evening Standard.

Henrik is writing new music for the quartet that will feature in this gig, and then they head to the studio. The band are very excited to record a third album for Jellymould Records with these amazing musicians.

Followed by Thirteen, Friday 15th February. 1,000 Trades, 16 Frederick Street, Jewellery Quarter, B1 3HE
