On July 1st 2020 my septet and I performed live at the Danish Radio (studie 2) as part of “Sommerscenen” – a special initiative where a jazz ensemble and a more ‘classical’ ensemble meet. In this case the duo Mathias Heise/Bjarke Mogensen and my septet.
It’s possible to see part of our performance her:

What an amazing review we (I) just recieved (Radio Bévort: BLIK).
It’s Jan Veldman from Jazz In Europe, and this one was really worth waiting for I must say:
“With this recording, Pernille Bévort has surrounded herself with a team of amazing musician and shows herself to not only be a great composer of modern jazz music but also an exceptional saxophonist and bandleader.
Personally, I would say this album is one of the best discoveries of the year, I can’t recommend this album highly enough.”
The whole review
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
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)

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.

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:
