Hess/ AC/ Hess Spacelab – SPACLEAB (New album)
March 13th, 2014 Hess/ AC/ Hess Spacelab released their second album “Spacelab”. This album was a long-awaited sequel to the trio’s debut “Nikolaj Hess Spacelab – The Champ” (2009).
Spacelab combines new songs with signature repertoire; the nine original tracks include four film compositions interwoven with five lyrical pieces, generating a beautiful and soulful cinematic vibe.
This purely acoustic and poetic voyage is a deep and trembling response to the trio’s wild and unrestrained debut, which channelled years of intense night jam sessions during Copenhagen Jazz Festival.
This is contemporary jazz at its finest, where moving compositions and catchy currents sail the listener through a virtuoso and magical universe.

The album received brilliant reviews and was nominated as Best Jazz Album of the Year for the Danish Music Awards Jazz 2014.

 Oh and …. Nikolaj, Anders and Mikkel have played together since early childhood – currently celebrating the trios 25th anniversary!
