First reviews of the album BLIK

The album BLIK with my septet Radio Bévort was released on May 11th 2020 and it has already been reviewed several times. Here are small samples from the 3 first reviews:

“Whether she creates melodic ballads or rather complex compositions Bévort is a highly fascinating, comprehensive, focused and mature artists.” – Ivan Rod, Gaffa, May 11th 2020

“Radio Bévort surprises with an intensely clear and refined sample of modern jazz from the highly creative North” – Bernard Lefèvre, Jazzhalo May 8th 2020

”The music is narrative and imaginative. Spend some time with this music. The music deserves it – and so do you.” – Niels Overgård, Jazznyt, May 12th 2020

BLIK – new single and album

In January 2020 me and my septet Radio Bévort made a new live studio recording.
On april 14th 2020 we release the single BLIK
On may 11th 2020 we release the full album BLIK.
We are looking so much forward. The album is recorded at Thomas Vangs the Village Studios in Vanløse, Copenhagen. A wonderful and well equipped studio.
Here you can hear a snippet of the beautiful ballad BLIK, tenor saxophone, composition and arrangement by me, Pernille Bévort. (A video teaser)

Radio Bévort recommended

On the site POV the author Per Vadmand looks back on the year 2019 within jazz and he recommends his readers to listen to different selected Danish ensembles – including my septet Radio Bévort. (January 2020).
He writes that he hopes the jazz clubs will find place for us in their programs in the future.
I share that hope.

New playlist on Soundcloud

I have just created a new playlist on Soundcloud presenting my trio live from Pakhuset, Nykøbing Sj., Denmark. July 13th 2019.
This recording is very simple and it has the energy of the live performance that I really like. Pernille Bévort on tenor saxophone (composer), Morten Ankarfeldt on bass and Espen Laub von Lillienskjold on drums:

Release – Gopler og andre Urovækkende Fænomener

7 th of May we had a very fine release of this new vinyl with a 12 page booklet (only printet in 350 pieces).
Music by Pernille Bévort and illustrations by Jeppe Grangaard.

As part of the event we played a duo concert just bass and saxophone with added field recordings – to match the spirit of the music on this vinyl.

Apart from the release itself we have made a dedicated homepage about this project:

Gopler og andre Urovækkende Fænomener

”Gopler og andre Urovækkende Fænomener” is a special edition – a vinyl with a 12 page booklet only printet in 350 pieces.
Music by Pernille Bévort and illustrations by Jeppe Grangaard.
This release is the result of several years of cooperation and mutual inspiration between the two makers.
The music is created as a DIY-project, where saxophonist Pernille Bévort mixes her many wind instruments with field recordings and once in a while also mixes it with beats.
It’s a sort of sound-poem–universe complimented by a strong graphic aspect.
It is released on vinyl to celebrate the texture and warm acoustic sound of vinyl, the sounds of wood and air through instruments, and to have the advantage of the big cover and booklet format – the feeling when you touch and handle the physical vinyl – unpack, unfold, smell, hear the crackling paper – in other words the whole experience of sensing.
The release contains our acoustic and graphical imprint of impressions and it reflects our mutual inspiration. Large brushstrokes and sometimes alarming sounds as omens of impending destruction or just a slightly disturbed presence in life mixed with joyful wonder.
Acoustical and visual fragments of a diary.
