Om Snorre Kirk:
After skyrocketing onto the European Jazz Scene as a sideman with some of the finest names on the Scandinavian jazz scene today, as well as working with prominent international names such as Diane Schuur, Eric Reed and Stephen Riley, recent years have seen inter-scandinavian 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 JazzSpecial 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 his subsequent outings, Europa from 2015 and Drummer & Composer from 2017, followed by performances at prominent international festivals such as the North Sea Jazz Festival, Pori Jazz Festival, and even the Kansas City Art of Swing Festival, Snorre Kirk has further cemented his position as one of Europe’s fastest rising jazz stars.
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.
