He travels at least half of every year, playing clubs, concert halls, colleges, and pops concerts. He has headlined the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, the Blue Note, and Dizzy’s Club amongst many other venues. Ken’s CDs on the Capri label, “Noir Blue”, “In Search Of”, and “Maybe September” were released to great critical acclaim and massive airplay. He has recorded music as diverse as Italian and French folk songs, avant-garde jazz, pop, and classical music; he recorded the Darius Milhaud Clarinet Concerto with an orchestra in Sofia, Bulgaria, and was a featured soloist (playing Mozart) in 2015 at the Siletz Bay Music Festival in Oregon, where he will be premiering a new concerto in 2016, written for him by Dick Hyman. Ken was the musical director of the Oregon Festival Of American Music (OFAM) for eight years, and is a longtime performer/consultant to The Jazz Cruise, where he was elected into the Jazz Cruise Hall Of Fame in 2013. He resides in New York City with his wife, dog, and whatever children happen to be passing through.




Sinne Eeg’s distinctive vocals and original compositions have
earned her a loyal and rapidly growing fan base in her native
country of Denmark and around the world. Considered the
preeminent jazz vocalist in Scandinavia, Sinne has also made her mark in Japan, China, and throughout Europe with her exquisite live performances and award-winning studio recordings.

Sinne was born into a musical family in the Danish countryside. Her father, a physician, played bass, while her mother sang and played clarinet. Her brother played the saxophone, and her uncle was a multi-instrumentalist. Naturally, Sinne began playing music at the young age of four. At 16, she decided to pursue a career in music and attended a music preparatory school and continued her advanced studies at the highly competitive Danish Music Conservatory. The six years she spent rigorously training at the
prestigious academy gave Sinne a deep understanding of music, harmonically and rhythmically, which is evident in her stellar performances today.

Sinne has received numerous awards including the DR P2 Jazz Prize (2009), and four Danish Music Awards (Best Vocal Jazz Album) for WATING FOR DAWN (2007), DON’T BE SO BLUE (2010), FACE THE MUSIC (2014), and Eeg – Fonnesbæk (2015).
In 2014, she was awarded the prestigious Ben Webster Prize, and in 2015, 60 French critics paid their tribute with one of Europe’s most distinguished awards, Academie du Jazz, for FACE THE MUSIC.
