Hans Ulrik, saxophone

Born 1965 in Copenhagen. Studied at Berklee from 1984 to 1986. Resided in New York 1986 and 1996. Played with, among others, Steve Swallow, Gary Peacock, Mino Celu, Adam Nussbaum, John Scofield, Peter Erskine, Marilyn Mazur and Lars Jansson. He is leading various groups of his own, and is also part of a trio with Steve Swallow and Jonas Johansen.

Hans plays not only the saxophone but also many wind instruments including clarinet, recorder and flute as well as harmonica. He has developed a personal style of playing in which he combines a strong sense of melody encompassing a highly-developed harmonic viewpoint. His style is very expressive and "Nordic", and rhythmically dynamic.
