The Danish/Australian trio Number Junky from Perth combines exciting rhythms and odd-time signatures while retaining a focus on lyrical melodies and lush harmony. They play contemporary original jazz and re-workings of standards led by Danish guitarist and “post-bop wizard” (Vintage Guitars) Kristian Borring with the “hip and capable” (Ivan Rod) rhythm section of Zac Grafton on bass, and Peter Evans on drums.

Number Junky released their critically acclaimed album Earth Matters on Coolit! Records in 2022: “It’s success is built on their great ability to navigate busy rhythmic minefields, and also on the immaculate time inherent in Borring’s strong playing” (The Australian).
The album’s maturity and appeal has been praised internationally with “its lustrous sound and its melodic and harmonic qualities combined with the exploration of skilful rhythms” (Jazz Mania).

Number Junky has performed and recorded with American/Cuban pianist Fabian Almazan and British saxophonist Will Vinson. Strongly in demand on the jazz scene, they are also known for their monthly residency in Perth, The Villa House Sessions.

“An album we could all benefit from listening to “ – Dingo Jazz
