Loading tracks...

Arranged & played by Søren Bebe (piano), Anders Mogensen (drums) & Kasper Tagel (bass)
Class devised by Allan Nielsen

On May 18 our new ballet class album “Jazz Music for Ballet Class – the Songs of George Gershwin” will be released to all major streaming and download platforms including Spotify, Amazon and iTunes.

But already now it’s possible to buy the CD as well as just a digital mp3 download of the album here on this site. See links below the album cover.
The CD comes with FREE shipping worldwide + a digital mp3 download of the album.

The album covers a full ballet class and all themes are by the wonderful composer George Gershwin. This time however, as well as the piano it features a drummer and a bass player on all tracks! Have you ever heard a ballet class album like this before?

The musicians playing on this album are top of the top, world class, and world touring jazz musicians and it’s our dream that this unusual (for a ballet class album) orchestration will bring a burst of energy, creativity and joy into your ballet studio, or home, or wherever you’ll be listening to this music. We certainly had a lot of fun creating it for you!
