"Acclaimed Danish guitarist and composer, Kristian Borring, launches his fifth album with a concert in Fremantle at the fabulous Kidogo Arthouse.

His latest album – "Out of Nowhere" – was featured on ABC Jazz as Album of the Week, and has been hailed as "a typically classy, intelligent & sophisticated offering from Borring" (The Jazz Mann) and "creative contemporary jazz at it's very best" (JazzViews).

Kristian is joined by some of Australia's finest players – pianist Harry Mitchell, Double Bassist Soonyong Lee and Ben Vanderwal on drums".

Expect a night of lyrical jazz with funky grooves with a 'Scandinavian touch' performed in a wonderful intimate acoustic space.

Biography:
Originally from Denmark, guitarist Kristian Borring established himself as a “rising star” (Time Out London) when moving to the British capital from Amsterdam, cementing his name as a melodic contemporary jazz artist, who can be a leader and sideman alike. He has appeared and/or recorded with cutting edge jazz players such as saxophonists Tommaso Starace and Will Vinson, vibraphone player Jim Hart, as well as lyrical vocalists such as Polish folk diva Monika Lidke, and Australian jazz singer Chris McNulty.

Kristian is now residing in Australia’s Western capital of Perth where locals may have heard him with the 'The Awakenings Ensemble', but he continues to work with his European quartet which has received much acclaim over the years. The Danish Jazz Magazine, Jazz Special, described the group as delivering “hard swing, lively post-bop and mellow Nordic melancholy to edgy jazz-rock fusion…with great force and a controlled ferocity which suits the quartet well”, and BBC Radio 3 presenter Julian Joseph recognised the group as “a band exercising a strong sense of control and empathy”.

Kristian’s fifth album Out of Nowhere was released in 2021, immediately becoming album of the week on both ABC jazz Australia as well Danish Radio Broadcast P8jazz. It was reviewed as being “creative contemporary jazz at its very best” by Jazz Views, and jazz reviewer Ian Mann described it as: “A typically classy, intelligent & sophisticated offering from Borring”.

Kristian’s collaborative efforts includes his new Australian trio Number Junky (an experimental guitar-led jazz trio which was featured at this year’s West Australian Guitar Festival), the band Turning Pages – with Sydney-based Drummer Paul Derricott – as well the British/Scandinavian “cool-grooving organ trio” (AP Reviews) Acrobat, which latest 2019 album Make Your Stand received critical acclaim and was followed by a three-week European tour in early 2020 before the world pandemic.

Kristian’s quartet featured at Perth International Jazz Festival in 2018 upon the release of his live album, recorded at the celebrated venue Vortex Jazz Club in Dalston, London. A three-week tour of the UK and Spain followed featuring the line-up from the album; Rick Simpson (p), Dave Whitford (b) and Jon Scott (d). Adrian Pallant from AP Reviews wrote about this album: “A COOL, LUMINOUS BREEZE once again permeates the classy grooves of Danish guitarist Kristian Borring’s original music… The guitarist’s clear improvisatory journeyings, as always, catch the attention.”

Kristian currently teaches jazz guitar at WAAPA, and has performed with his own ensembles and as a sideman for other all over Europe (England, Wales, Scotland, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain, Cyprus) and Australia. Kristian has worked as ‘session’ and ‘side-man’ over the past nearly two decades with a great variety of groups and performers in Australia and Europe, including: Archie Shepp (US), Fabian Almazan (US), Linda May Han Oh (US/AUS), Bruno Heinen (UK), Antonio Zambrini (ITA), Laurence Cottle (UK), Fred Grigson (AUS), Jamie Oehlers (AUS), Tom O’Halloran (AUS), Steve Barry (AUS), Salena Jones (US), Daniel Susnjar (AUS) and Georgie Aue.
