Diggin’ This: Svaneborg Kardyb – “Op” (Official Video) (Gondwana Records)
Nordic jazz served chilled.
I remember really enjoying “Haven” by Svaneborg Kardyb, the Danish duo of Nikolaj Svaneborg who plays the keys on the Wurlitzer, Juno, and piano alongside drummer and percussionist Jonas Kardyb, when I first wrote about them back in October 2020.
(Since then I have also learned that Kardyb is pronounced “kah-doob” and not “Cardi B.”)
Now they’ve returned with “Op,” a subtle, rhythmic, and meditative piece that I am quite happy to play again and again.
