Mads la Cour’s Almugi
is an ancient Scandinavian word that means ‚free men of the Kingdom who possess the ability of goodness‘ and also the name for the new quartet of danish brass player and composer Mads la Cour.
Kasper Tom Christiansen (drum), Andreas Lang (double bass) and Lars Greve (clarinet) are joining Mads la Cour (cornet) in this quartet to play la Cour’s music with the intention of creating an honest, interactive and beautiful sound world.
Mads la Cour’s Almugi comes with a highly personal sound that explores a modern context of the Nordic region. The music is a reflection of la Cour’s unique compositional voice that features his highly personal playing style. This is organically developed contemporary jazz, with a wide variety of inspirations, from folk to avant-garde that nurtures a freely tonal language within collective improvisations.
