Danish guitarist, composer and bandleader, Kristian Borring, has been described as a “guitarist of enormous technical ability who utilizes his considerable gifts thoughtfully and tastefully, a highly accomplished guitarist and composer." - Ian Mann, The Jazz MannKristian’s latest album Silent Storm – released July 2016 - was recorded on a dark November day in 2015 at Curtis Schwartz Studio straight off the back of his quartet’s Autumn tour around England. The writing on this, Kristian’s third album, is colorful and stylistically diverse and is concentrated exclusively around his accomplished group, putting the sounds of guitar and piano backed by a strong and emphatic rhythm section in the centre of the recording. The Danish Jazz Magazine, Jazz Special, describes the result as “…hard swing, lively post bop and mellow Nordic melancholy to edgy jazz-rock fusion is delivered with great force and a controlled ferocity which suits the quartet well." The quartet, which features the inspiring efforts of Arthur Lea (p), Mick Coady (b) and Jon Scott, has been playing together since 2009: “This feels like a ‘proper’ working band throughout, with a flexible and intelligent rapport honed by several years of playing together" - The Jazz Mann. The synchronicity of the band and the level of the music was noted by Peter Jones at London Jazz News: “This is confident, sophisticated work at every level – composition, arrangement, execution - and a pleasure to listen to throughout." The Silent Storm tour of England, Wales and Denmark was kindly supported by Arts Council England.
