Peter Danemo växte upp med 60 och 70-talets kreativa rockmusik i ena örat och jazz i det andra. Många grupper som Deep Purple, Cream, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix m fl, såg improvisation som en naturlig och självklar del i deras musik, något som framför allt märks på live-albumen. Detta är något LED tagit fasta på. Peter Danemos kreativa och mycket personliga arrangemang lämnar stort mycket utrymme för infallsrik och lekfull improvisation. Peter Danemo har satt ihop en mycket spännande grupp bestående av en samling starka musikaliska personligheter. LED gjorde sin debut spelning på Landet Jazz 2010. Sveriges Radio var där och sände direkt.
In English: Peter Danemo, one of Sweden’s leading jazz drummers, grew up with the creative rock music of the 60’s and 70’s in one ear and jazz in the other. With this new project, he has come full circle.
Inspired by the element of improvisation in rock music like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Danemo has written very creative and personal arrangements for hand-picked musicians, all within the absolute elite of improvisational jazz in Sweden.
This sextet includes five horns, plus himself on drums. The tubaist, Per-Åke Holmlander, is also a member of Swedish Azz (w Mats Gustafsson) and of Peter Brötzmann tentet, and there are obvious free/avantgardistic elements in LED:s music, but also influences from New Orleans and other funky grooves. And surprisingly mellow sequences of lyrical polyphoni. These refreshing arrangements, combined with the inventive and playful musicianship of the sextet, puts a totally new perspective onto Led Zeppelin’s music.
Danemo, born in 1961, has had a professional career since the 80’s, when he started Peter Danemo Kvartett (1987) featuring Esbjörn Svensson (several years before e.s.t.). Their debut CD ”Baraban” was very well received, and since then he has released 5 more CD’s under his own name, with his own music. Through the years, he has toured and recorded with a very large selection of international and Scandinavian musicians. Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, Bobo Stenson, Ray Anderson, Aaron Parks, Lars Danielsson, Jacob Karlzon, Fredrik Ljungkvist.... and vocalists like Lina Nyberg and Viktoria Tolstoy.
