Over the years of this research project I have collaborated with many inspiring artists -
the chance to perform together and to work together on my music has deepened and enriched my reseach project immeasurable.
For each of the four artists I collaborated with, it was important to contribute to religious life in their respective local churches through their music while maintaining a performance schedule outside the church walls in jazz clubs and festivals. Therefore, the artistic collaborations in the field of Spiritual jazz brought also insights in Liturgical and Sacred Jazz and an exploration of four Lutheran jazz ministries:
Chanda Rule Saint Peter´s Church, NYC, USA
Janne Mark Brorsons Kirken, Copenhagen, DK
Tord Gustavsen Tanum Church, Oslo, NO
Daniel Stickan Nikolaikirche Lüneburg, GER
Here are four representations of artistic collaborations which I was able to document and display a spectrum of the three subgenres identified in my research, Liturgical, Sacred and Spiritual Jazz.
