The five musicians met and developed as students at the Funen Music Conservatory in Odense, before setting off in different directions.
Award-winning trumpeter Mads La Cour has forged a sound with his own groups, as has Simon Krebs on guitar. Pianist Peter Kohlmetz Møller has played a key role in genre-twisting collective The Eclectic Moniker, whilst Nikolaj Bundvig on drums and Morten Jørgensen on bass have established themselves as in-demand members of groups including Blue Foundation, and Søren Huss respectively.
But despite these five high-flying careers, their long-time goal has been to reconnect around their early musical passions together.
