Tine Bruhn's debut album "Entranced" is a welcoming blend of mellow, yet groove-based originals, 2 contemporary pieces by Joshua Redman with Tine's lyrics, songs by McCoy Tyner and Djavan, and a Swedish folk song arranged as a jazz waltz.
The record features Maurice Brown on trumpet on two of the tracks and the stellar rhythm section consists of Daniela Schächter (pn), Marco Panascia (bs) and Greg Hutchinson (dr).
The Tine Bruhn Quartet just returned from a tour to Europe where they played sold out venues such as B-Flat in Berlin. A tour in the summer 2010 with a focus on jazz festivals is in the works.

Tine Bruhn moved to New York City in 2001 after having graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston. Since then she has performed at some of the city’s best music venues including The Jazz Standard and The Cutting Room. Once a month Tine and her group of outstanding musicians perform at the well-know jazz club Zinc Bar in downtown Manhattan.
Born in 1978, Tine grew up belonging to the Danish minority in Flensburg, Germany. At the age of 15 she founded the a cappella group "Kvart I Fire" which gained high recognition in Denmark and Germany, especially after its release of the CD "Go 4 it" in 1996. The group kept an average of 3 performances a week during their high school years and they were requested at many official functions as well as private parties. Additionally Tine sang in classical choirs including the highly renowned semi-professional youth choir “Landes Jugend Chor Schleswig Holstein” and “Jugend Kammer Chor Flensburg”. Around that time she discovered her passion for jazz and started getting solo gigs.
In Boston she continued performing in a cappella settings, one of them being the "Vocal Jazz Ensemble" under the direction of Sharon Broadley-Martin, a Vox One member. She studied with Sheryl Bentyne from Manhattan Transfer, Walter Beasley, recording artist, Richard Evans, Grammy award winning arranger, and legendary scat educator Bob Stoloff.
