Humvee - Humvee
Humvee was established the spring of 2005. After several concerts in scandinavia the band decided to record their first cd, released on Jazzland Records. The band plays acoustic improvised music, and often with an idea of making music that sounds composed. The music could be described as free jazz inspired by both rock, free impro and contemporary music. It´s compromiseless, impulsive and energetic, but always with a great dynamic span. The members of the band are three busy young musicians of the new up and coming jazz generation on the norwegian jazz scene today.
