Delirium consists of sax player Mikko Innanen (FIN), cornet player Kasper Tranberg (DK), bassist Jonas Westergaard (DK) and drummer Stefan Pasborg (DK), representing Nordic co-operation among the bold, new jazz generation at its best. The quartet released its eponymous debut cd in the spring of 2002 after having played together for four years and touring in Denmark, Finland, Estonia and France.

"With Ornette Coleman in the backpocket, the quartet play themselves into an original universe. They paint intense pictures that are obscure and straight-ahead - as well as wild and lyrical. A fascinating musical journey with the new, young talents and their fresh view on tomorrow's jazz." (Pierre Dorge)
