From Ålesund with great success in Denmark
After skyrocketing onto the European Jazz Scene as a sideman with some of the finest names on the Scandinavian jazz scene today, recent years have seen drummer Snorre Kirk emerging as a full- fledged artist and composer in his own right.
With Blues Modernism, the hugely successful 2012 debut outing from Snorre Kirk, awarded with the prestigious Jazz Special Award in Denmark for "Album of the Year", as well as receiving two nominations in the Danish Grammy Awards, the drummer got an opportunity to showcase his remarkable qualities as a composer and as a bandleader.
With the release of BEAT, presenting an eclectic mix of exotic rhythms and vivid, colourful compositions, Snorre Kirk has realized his most personal and ambitious project to date.
