The Jesper Lundgaard Trio
was formed in Copenhagen on a June evening in 2014. Jesper Lundgaard, Enrico Pieranunzi and Alex Riel met at the famous Jazzhus Montmartre which became the genesis of this exciting group. 60 Out Of Shape
was the result of this performance - also a celebration of Lundgaard's 60th birthday.
Featuring Lundgaard on Bass, Enrico Pieranunzi on Piano and Alex Riel on Drums, there were high expectations for the combination of three world-class musicians. The result of this performance was a fantastic exhibition of improvisation on songs from the Great American Songbook, including Autumn Leaves, All The Things You Are and My Funny Valentine.
