about

Kristian’s second album as a bandleader “Urban Novel” draws inspiration from the cityscape and is a personal homage to life in a metropolis. The album, released on Jellymould Jazz, features his working quartet. Vibraphonist, Jim Hart, also joins in the creation of a rich sound palette consisting of guitar, piano and vibes. The music on “Urban Novel” with its strong sense of melody set in a contemporary ‘sound-scape’, has been described as being “clean, cool, precise and contemporary” – (The Scotsman). Jazzwise reviewer Selwyn Harris said, “Borring's set of originals are engaging and their subtle rhythmic and harmonic twists add to the interest”. Commenting on Kristian’s continuous ability as strong melodic player, All About Jazz ‘s Bruce Lindsey described Kristian’s playing as a “warm, open tone - a welcoming sound that draws and holds the attention”. Lance Liddle from Bebop Spoken Here added “one of the finest, most tasteful and accomplished guitarists on the scene, with Jim Hart - one of the world's great vibraphonists - in the mix, the result is another triumph for the Danish guitarist and his team.”
