Saxophonist and flautist Julie Kjær’s edgy and thoughtfull playing and ‘dark, otherworldly imagery’ (Jazzwise) has become incerasingly evident around Europe, inhabiting ground between composition and free improv.

She plays with London Improvisers Orchestra and is a leader and sidewoman of several other English and Danish ensembles. Currently she is working on a new trio project with bass player John Edwards and drummer Steve Noble. Julie was recently chosen to be a Sound and Music “New Voice” artist and is now a part of the ‘Portfolio’ artist development program for improvisers.
