Carsten Dahl is widely considered to be one of the most original and creative pianists coming out of Europe. He has received several awards like the Ben Webster Award, the Django D’Or, the Carl Nielsen Prize and several Danish Music Award Jazz. With a huge audience in Scandinavia he is now conquering the rest of Europe. Now he’s ready with a follow-up to the highly acclaimed Painting Music released on ACT Music.
On Mirrors Within, Dahl and his bandmates, Stefan Pasborg (drums) and Nils Bo Davidsen (bass), explores total improvisation. All the recordings were made without talking in the studio and with no prior previous agreements or ideas, except two tracks based on rough sketches (Falling Down Down and How I Hear Beautiful). That the result sounds so good and cohesive is a testament to the level of musicianship and connection between the three.
