Remix-Eventyrer - Lassen
Who would have thought that a jazz band that played their first concert at a BDSM club in Bergen in 2017 was going to release one of the most featured Norwegian jazz albums, "Eventyrer", in 2018 and then end up on several of the year's best lists? LASSEN has the habit of not being like everyone else, finding different pathways and gradually shifting the limits of what jazz can be and particularly how it can be presented and communicated. 2019 is no exception.
With their new upcoming album "Remix-Eventyrer", the band has looked to its rich network and invited techno producers, indie musicians, characters and space jazz people to interpret the music from "Eventyrer". Not the usual daily routine in the jazz world, but who can object to recycled and sustainable music!?
Life: Live at Røverstaden - Knut Reiersrud Band
40 years on, and Knut Reiersrud has returned to the place where it all started. Along with his band, two of the capital's best sound engineers and a camera crew of five he filled the basement room in Munkedamsveien with people and electric guitars.
The place: known as Club7 in the 70s and 80s, now under the moniker Røverstaden: this was where Reiersrud had his first professional gig. The concert in June 1979 was such a success that the club employed him as a standby act for when booked bands failed to appear for whatever reason. Knut could always find people, and he had hundreds of blues songs filling his 18 year old head.
Juno - Brand New Single - They See You
Juno's Jazzland debut single brings a full-strength dose of 21st century electrocommunication paranoia directly into your head, high octane, vitriolic, saturated in fugitive determination, and imbued with an unstoppable momentum. And, to avoid confusion, abandon your genre classification toolkit - it doesn't work here.
