Danish saxophonist and composer Lotte Anker has found musical success with renowned pianist Craig Taborn and relentlessly innovative drummer Gerald Cleaver. Since 2003 the trio has released three critically acclaimed CDs and has toured extensively throughout Europe and North America. Best known for an intense yet almost meditational sense of playing, Anker’s trio showcases her as an exceptionally strong improviser, crafting a voice unique in its long-form sonic gestures. Her style is almost painterly in nature with immense detail and movement that touches on the best of avant-garde jazz legacies.
