Get ready for an adventure into the future with Morten Schantz, piano and keyboards; Josh Arcoleo, sax; Anton Eger, drums. A stellar line-up. In January 2017 Danish keyboardist and composer, Morten Schantz, released his first international album, "Godspeed", on Edition Records. This album has been applauded by reviewers from all over the world. Often compared to legends, Weather Report, Schantz has re-invented the music that used to be described at fusion and transformed it into his very own brand. It's electronic jazz that points into the future. With 'Godspeed' the trio idiosyncratically stamp their bold imprint on the music in typically dynamic and imperious fashion creating music full of euphoric riffs and blissful melodic hooks. Utilising an impressive array of electronics with all the predictable skill and virtuosity at their command this trio generate some of the most vibrant music to burst onto the European jazz scene in recent times. telepathic interaction between Schantz, Neset & Eger lifts the album into the realms of the exceptional (and unmissable) a group that really turn heads JAZZWISE (UK) Morten Schantz is a European jazz name we're going to get used to hearing. THE GUARDIAN (UK) "Will we hear from a better trio this year? Nope WEXFORD ECHO (IRE) A swirl of exploratory playing LONDON EVENING STANDARD (UK) Extraordinary achievement The last decade was characterized by jazz-rock reminiscences, but mostly it was missing animal energy and originality. I salute Schantz Godspeed as that rare exception JAZZPORT (CZ)
