In july we toured Denmark and played at two of the major festivals; Copenhagen Jazz Festival and Aarhus Jazz Festival.
The band was smoking and we had a lot of fun.
Here’s a review of one of our concerts:
AARHUS JAZZ FESTIVAL – LARS BORUP
“It was a musical firework – blazing and excellent”
“There was played extremely intense, the band showed a great sense of finding each other in the music, and it was quite obvious that they enjoyed playing together”
“It was for two glorious hours in good musical company”
In July 2013 Walbum/Maintz Brazilian Quintet will be touring Denmark. We will be performing at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival, World Scene, Aarhus Jazz Festival as well as at some other venues.
The lineup will be as on our cd, except will have Sidiel Vieira (bass) as a sub for Sizão Machado.
