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”

A little quote in Swedish: “Här får publiken Äterigen njuta av Bevort på tenorsax som levererar en stark solistinsats som för tankarna till Michael Brecker”.

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)
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”

Here is a little video from our very nice concert at Paradise Jazzcafe in Copenhagen 15. feb. 2017. We play my tune “Tiny Hesitation” and it’s performed by my octet “Radio Bévort”:
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.”
– Ian Patterson
Link to my profile
“The many different instruments represented by her group, Radio Bévort, underline a rich palette of sounds where saxophones, flute, guitar, drums, piano and accordion contribute to a jazz sound that seems to draw inspiration from all around the world. For instance, “Nine is Fine” starts out with intimate tango-romanticism from Francesco Cali‘s accordion, but soon transforms into an advanced funk piece with polyphonic horn voices. ” –
The whole review: Review – Which Craft – By Jakob Baekgaard
The very first review of the new Cd “Which Craft?” arrived on the releaseday June 17th 2016.
Here is a short extract:
“It´s apparent that Bévort joyfully makes use of the different possibilities she has as composer and arranger when it comes to the many possible combinations of instruments in this ensemble. She shows both overview and reserve of strength. The release is a remarkable and particular delight”

The next review was published a few days later on June 21st 2016:
Here is a short extract:
“It´s a release that shows thought-through integrity and where the melodies are in focus…..the lovely «Heavy Feather» could almost sound like the score for a film…….Altogether «Which Craft?» is a fine release definitely worth listening to from a Danish musician that ought to have far more concerts booked in her calendar – not just in the Copenhagen area but also in Norway, Sweden and Finland”

We played a wonderful concert during the jazzfestival with a special trio:
Bévort, Kjølby, Ankarfeldt.
It took place at Koncertkirken, Blågårds Plads – a very nice room with a great acoustic for this small line up – very transparent and a nice naturel reverb.
It’s possibly to see and hear some of it here
