The Benjamin Koppel Ultimate Soul & Jazz Revue is a long awaited release that combines different, important aspects of saxophonist Benjamin Koppel’s versatile universe.
American soul music has always been a cornerstone in Koppel’s musicology and when he was just a little boy at first he played the drums, inspired by Bernard 8222;Pretty” Purdie, a master he now recorded with for this release. Soon he turned to singing, diving into Little Stevie Wonder-material, Aretha Franklinsongs and The Staple Singers all day long.
At 13 years of age he discovered the saxophone and his path was carved in stone, when he quickly rose into being the most prominent young jazz musician of Denmark, becoming the most awardwinning youngster, debuting as a leader with the CD-release BENJAMIN KOPPEL QUARTET, recorded when he was only 18 years old.
