“Young Vibrant Modern Jazz“
Woodhouse – The Music
Woodhouse is young, Danish “Nu jazz” composed by Christoffer Skovhus. The music invites the listener into a odd-time-hiphop-universe with Balkan inspired saxophone sound, hip grooves, strong bass lines and dreaming keys that creates a unique and energetic sound. Ahead awaits a tour de force with a group, that has given modern danish jazz a fresh and vibrant sound with a new power dimension.
Woodhouse was in the spring of 2022 a part of the prestigious jazz competition “Jazzkonkurrencen”, arranged by Jazz Danmark, where they won the “audience award”.

Together they have a common interest in exploring jazz and grooves. With music that could be played by a bigger band the members tries to make their roles bigger and uses effects and electronic elements to widen their sound when the music is at its largest.
