Welcome to my website

Welcome to my website. Here you can find all sorts of informations about me.
I mostly write in English here – since music is a language without boarders.
If you are interested in my biography in Danish you can visit “Biography Wikipedia (Dk)” and also find my Danish CV under “Press”. Several reviews are also in Danish or even Swedish/Norwegian.
Enjoy.

Live on Swedish Radio once again

Live Jazz, Swedish Radio P2.
For the second time this year I can be heard in a live recording from Sweden. Last time it was as part of Bohuslän Big Band with Maria Schneider.
This time it’s as part of Swedish drummer/bandleader/composer Calle Rasmussons 10 piece ensemble “Roots”. I had the great pleasure of playing 2 concerts with them in Halmstad Friday and Saturday (may 18th and 19th).
The concert on Friday evening in Halmstad Teaters Festsal was recorded live by Swedish Radio. The concerts starts 1:58 in this broadcasting. We were part of the big Swedish jazz gathering in Halmstad with important meetings and a big Jazz Galla Concert as well. Very fine music. It will only be possible to listen to within the next 30 days.

Reviews of the concerts with Maria Schneider and Bohuslän Big Band

Review of the concert in Malmø 12. oct. 2017. By Christer Nilsson, Orkesterjournalen.
A little quote in Swedish: “Men det finns många andra strålande solister i BBB. Inte minst kända danska Pernille Bevort, med ett tenorlir som skulle imponerat på Joe Lovano”

Review of the concert in Vara 17. oct. 2017. By Andreas Backelund, Lira, 18 oct. 2017.

2 new ensembles will make their débuts

During the Copenhagen Jazzfestival July 2017 I will be part of 2 different ensembles that both make their débuts presenting a lot of new and interesting music.

July 12th it’s the “Bebiandi – Postkort fra Mellemrummet” – a septet.
Paradise Jazzcafe, Huset 21:00
Lisbeth Diers, Thommy Andersson, Pernille Bévort and Signe Bisgaard are the 4 composers and band leaders.
4 composers create one concentrated musical idea – a postcard – and sends it to the other 3.
3 postcard are received by each composer that uses the postcards as inspiration for writing 3 new compositions.
7 musicians prepare and rehearse the music for the premiere.
12 new compositions with shared take-off will create an evening of music with a joint story.

Pernille Bévort: composition, tenor- and soprano saxophone, bass clarinet and alto flute; Fredrik Davidsson (S): trumpet/flugelhorn; Lisa Stick: (DE): trombone; Ida Nørholm: cello; Signe Bisgaard: composition, piano; Thommy Andersson: composition, bass; Lisbeth Diers: composition, perc/drums
This evening I will premiere 3 compositions: Bebiandi, Totur fra Vanløse and Kort og Godt

July 14th at Koncertkirken, Blågårds Plads 20 – 21 I’ll perform with the new Maluba Orchestra (Marilyn Mazur, Fredrik Lundin and Kasper Bai).

Fredrik Lundin (mezzosoprano- and tenor saxophone, flute and bass flute) Peter Fuglsang (alto saxophone, flute and clarinet) Pernille Bévort (tenor- and soprano saxophone, alto flute and bass clarinet) Jesper Løvdal (baryton saxophone, alto flute, clarinet and contrabass clarinet) Tomasz Dabrowski (trumpet and flugelhorn) Maj Berit Guassora (trumpet and flugelhorn) Mia Engsager (trombone) Annette Saxe (bass trombone and tuba) Kasper Bai (guitar and conducting) Makiko Hirabayashi (piano and keyboard) Klavs Hovman (double bass and electric bass) Emil de Waal (drums and electronics) Marilyn Mazur (percussion and conducting)

 

 

Beautiful review in London Jazz

I’m very glad to see that my contribution to this new release is mentioned in this Cd review by Patrick Hadfield. “Charlie Watts Meets The Danish Radio Big Band” is a live recording from the DR Concert Hall with the Big Band featuring the legendary drummer Charlie Watts (The Rolling Stones).
I was part of the DR Big Band on this project – called in with very short notice as a sub on the alto and soprano saxophones.
You Can’t Always Get What You Want is taken fast and tight, with Presencer’s flugelhorn leading the melody over the band riffing. The Hammond-like organ creates a funky feel. Pernille Bevort extended solo on soprano sax ramps you the excitement to a climax”

You can’t always get what you want (me on sopsax solo among others):

Molasses (me on alto solo among others)

Updated profile on All About Jazz

I have updated my profile on the site All About Jazz.
Here you can find 2 interviews and several reviews from the archive.
The latest review was released december 28. 2016
“There’s long been the feeling that Bévort’s talents deserve greater acclaim and much wider exposure. Which Craft?, another compelling addition to her impressive discography, once more makes the case for Bévort as an original composer/arranger and a fine instrumentalist. Her craft, rooted in tradition yet of subtly contemporary outlook, is definitely worth tuning in to.”
