Lately Kasper lead his "Strawboss" sextet and "Terzet" trio and also performs solo. These groups will be documented in his coming trilogy "Suite Cobra" on ILK Music.

The album was recorded live in Jazzhouse in Copenhagen after a weeklong tour in Denmark during VinterJazz 2017. It captures the raw and intense feeling of the music beautifully. 

“Strawboss” is an exciting frame for Tranberg’s heartfelt playing, and is also an explosion of improvisations based on Tranberg's compostions which focus on tonal constructions, abstract soundscapes, longer forms and grooves. 

Tranberg says: “I am listening for the beautiful, powerful and surprising in music, and my compositions create the platform for what we can find and achieve together. We seldom leave the material when we improvise..we play jazz – that’s the essence and pulse of this music” 

 

The Strawboss sextet consist of a very strong cast of today's leading improvisers: 

Tony Malaby: is one of the leading sax-improvisers of the world. He is leading his own spectacular ensembles from New York and has also been active in bands lead by Paul Motian, Charlie Haden, Ches Smith and many others. - “a hero of today’s improvised music scene” –Jazztimes
