Drummer, composer and bandleader Stefan Pasborg has had a close relationship to amongst others Stravinsky's music, as his mother was a former ballet dancer at the Royal Danish Ballet in Copenhagen, and some of his earliest musical impressions came from the 'classical' world.
In 2011 in connection to his artist-in-residence at Jazzhouse in Copenhagen, Denmark, Stefan formed the trio called The Firebirds, which is a trio named after Igor Stravinsky's 'Firebird', and he released the album ''The Firebirds'' on ILK Music in 2015, which consisted of his interpretations of ''Sacre du Printemps'' and ''Firebird''.
He wished to explore the meeting between written music and improvised music in his very own way, which draws on references from genres and styles as different as jazz, surf, free improvised music, blues and much more.
When Stefan Pasborg received the prestigious musician-price ’’The Gudman Award 2017’’, he wanted to extend his trio-interpretations to a larger ensemble, and he asked the big band ''Blood Sweat Drum´n´Bass Big Band'' + the 2 soloists Fredrik Lundin and Anders Filipsen to perform ''3 movements from Sacre du Printemps''...this is the result.
