It’s with good cause that they call Esben Just the uncrowned Danish king of New Orleans rock’n’blues piano. When his fingers roll expertly over the ivories, they unleash an incandescent display of swinging swamp rhythm’n’blues. Esben Just (born in 1965) has inhaled the heady reek of the New Orleans musical gumbo pot: blues, roots, funk, soul, rumba, rock’n’roll and more. He masters the piano style we know from Dr. John, Fats Domino and Professor Longhair, traceable back to Jelly Roll Morton. When Esben Just takes the stage, the good times will roll. Many of us know him from shows and recordings by the trio SP Just Frost, where Esben Just played with Henrik SP Poulsen on bass and Søren Frost on drums. After a long break, they returned to the scene in 2018. At Tønder Festival 2019 we present Esben Just’s solo piano show, and a musical rave is guaranteed.
