about

”The album, consisting entirely of compositions penned by the leader, shows a band whose understanding of the complexities of musical form belies its young age. While each of the members is certainly a highly skilled musician, instrumental prowess isn’t really the issue here. It’s about unfolding the melodic beauty of Fiil’s compositions, creating a mood and a sense of dynamics that ties the work together as a whole.”
‐ Allaboutjazz (USA)

”Reconsideration is a sublime piece of work.” ”...Reconsideration aims much higher and beyond many of it’s Scandinavian counterparts.” ”...I believe we will be talking about this album again as part of our Best Albums Of 2011...”
Jazzwrap (USA)

The members in Lars Fiil Quartet joined forces in 2007 and their career really took off when they won the prestigious Danish talent‐competition “Young Jazz” in April 2010. The victory led to concerts abroad, amongst others Bohemia Jazzfest in the Czech Republic and Umea Jazzfestival in Sweden, and when they participated in the pan‐Scandinavian competition “Young Nordic Jazz Comets” in Helsinki in September 2010, their bass‐player was presented with the award for “Best Soloist”. Their sucees reached new levels in 2011 when they were nominated for a Danish Music Award (The Danish equivalent to the Grammys) in the category “New Artist of the Year 2011”.

In the beginning of 2011 the group released its debutalbum entitled Reconsideration. It features 9 tracks, all penned by bandleader Lars Fiil, and it draws its inspiration both from the lyrical, melancholic sounds of Scandinavia and the wild and extrovert expressions from the modern experimenting jazzscene.

The record has received a lot of praise from critics all around the world, and has gotten airplay on major radiostations in Scandinavia, the UK and in USA.
