European Sunrise is a band that originated out of Take Five:
Europe II, the second edition of a program designed to give a
number of Europe's most talented and upcoming jazz musicians the
opportunity to further develop their skills.
Ten participating musicians from France, the Netherlands,
Norway, Poland and the UK will be demonstrating the special result
at North Sea Jazz. In January 2013, they came together for a week
in the English countryside: trumpeters Arielle
Besson (France) and Piotr Damasiewicz
(Poland), reed players Arun Ghosh (UK),
David Kweksilber (The Netherlands) and
Guillaume Perret (France), tuba player
Daniel Herskedal (Norway), guitarist Chris
Sharkey (UK), pianist Marcin Masecki
(Poland), bassist Per Zanussi (Norway) and drummer
Marcos Baggiani (The Netherlands).
During their residency, the musicians had the unique opportunity
to discuss, explore and strengthen all aspects of their future
career, both musical and business related. Due to their combined
effort, a strong and unique tentet is the musical result of Take
Five: Europe II.
