Copenhagen Art Ensemble - one of the most open-minded Danish orchestras in the fields of improvisation and modern composed jazz - has recorded a new cd: Don ́t Mention the War. Don ́t Mention the War presents music which has been in the Ensemble’s repertoire for a number of years. With this cd the orchestra puts on record and documents several years of concert music as it sounds when Copenhagen Art Ensemble “plays on its own”, i.e. without any guest composers/soloists or concept-based projects.
