Nikola Bankov - Bright Future

Nikola Bankov - Bright Future



Nikola Bankov is a 20 year old alto saxophonist and composer who is truly pushing the boundaries of his instrument. His debut album ‘Bright Future’ emerges as Nikola’s definitive statement, merging inspiring and catchy melodies with a refreshingly original sound.

The album features world-renowned tenor saxophonist Seamus Blake. Bankov and Blake experiment with a range of FX effects applied to the sound of the saxophone, adding a new set of colours to their musical palate. The rest of the band is made up of some of the best young and and high-in-demand musicians in Denmark.

Bright Future consists of 7 original compositions by the band leader, who has been gradually forming them since he was 16 years old. It is a mix of contemporary jazz with electronics, creating fresh and modern soundscapes.
