Then Giant Steps is ready for a powerful vitamin injection, which has been mixed by some of the most solid and experienced musicians from the Danish jazz and world music environment. You simply love the lid and warm the heart of hearing this international team, taking an incentive to the warm skies and catching tones and rhythms from the Orient, Africa and the Caribbean. Everything further developed with a touch of Nordic jazz and with the string instrument 'oud' as a thorough Arab basic tone. The band's chapel master, composer and saxophonist Simon Spang-Hanssen has through his long career been inspired by the collaboration with musicians from all over the world's cultures. Turkey, Brazil, Vietnam, Cameroon and Tunisia.

At this concert, he's along with the three splendid instrumentalists Ghanaian percussionist Ayi Solomon and Syrian Maher Mahmoud on oud and the Danish bassist Thomas Fonnesbæk - a poetic and life-affirming meeting where Spang-Hansen and Mahmoud captivating compositions blossoms in full bloom.
