#var:page_name# cover

Långt ut väst från Kanada får vi denna vecka tungt storbesök tillsammans med en av BrÖtz sedan långt ut bäst favorit Roligheten med ny kvartett: Roligheten.
Dessutom:
Tordag den 12/4 FFFFK-Forum För Främjandet av den Fria Kulturen + Jam no.21

och apropos det: Tänk er en dubbelsidig tratt med en mycket trång mellandel. På ena sidan har vi alla musiker med fantastisk musik. På andra sidan har all fantastiskt intresserad publik.

Det trånga i utrymmet i mitten är utbudet av scener som effektivt decimeras av en kulturpolitik som gör att den ändå ganska generösa kulturslanten fastnar på vägen. Se: brotznow.se

The NOW Society Ensemble is drawn from Vancouver's finest improvising musicians. Currently under the Artistic Direction of Lisa Cay Miller, the NOW Society Ensemble has been presenting engaging and varied concerts since 2008 in a multitude of venues and formats, from formal concert halls to DIY stages, from showcases to concerts and installations. The music is closely associated with Musique Actuelle and Creative Music, fusing improvisation and composition, the predetermined with the undefined. Events planned and unplanned are linked, craft and skill navigates the endless possibilities of the unknown.

With flexible instrumentation and five to ten members, the NOW Society Ensemble proudly presents compositions commissioned by the NOW Society, and has premiered new works by Giorgio Magnanesi, Rainer Wiens, Joane Hétu and Gary Wildeman. The ensemble collaborates with world-renowned composers, performers and improvisers; recent and coming guest artists include Ellwood Epps, Vicky Mettler, Lori Freedman, Joane Hétu. Jean Derome, Christine Duncan (Montreal), Anne La Berge, Ig Henneman (Amsterdam), Jim Denley (Australia), Pauline Oliveros, Lisle Ellis and Eyvind Kang (USA).

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

André Roligheten is playing his original tunes with his favorite musicians. The quartet is brand new, but with long time college and friend Jon Rune Strøm on the bass, study colleges Erik Nylander on drums and Adrian Waade on the violin, and when they happen to be three of Norway’s most flexible and creative young players, this quartet sounds as natural and confident as it sounds open and tactile.

Their first album was released in September 2017, on Clean Feed Records

Their first album ”Homegrown” released in September 2017:

The title “Homegrown” gives justice to the music assembled in this CD: it testifies exemplarily the way jazz is played in the North of Europe. Scandinavian musicians may not do it better, but certainly they do what they brilliantly do with a personality you can’t find elsewhere. It’s strong, seductive and full of arguments in what regards musicality, expression, technical control, imagination and that kind of vision only achieved when there’s an analytical and critical distance towards the tradition – if any doubt happens to appear, it’s enough to hear what saxophonist André Roligheten does with an Ornette Coleman’s composition, “Kathleen Gray”, the last of the album.

«Roligheten states that he has written all the compositions inspired by, and especially tailored for the musicians on this record. «My idea for this recording is based on the warm sound of tenor sax and violin in octaves, the open harmonic flexibility of no chord instruments, the spirit and feeling from some strong live experiences of music from Greece, Marokko, Madagascar, Norwegian folklore in Telemark, all tied together in the attitude and approach of legends like Ornette Coleman and Archie Shepp. I found my dream-team of musicians to execute these ideas in three of Norway´s most distinctive, creative and unique players: Adrian Løseth Waade on violin (Trondheim Jazz Orchestra), Jon Rune Strøm on double bass (Paal Nilssen-Love Large Unit) and Erik Nylander on drums (Ola Kvernberg Trio)»

Roligheten is one of the most distinctive horn players in Norway, and a mere consultation of his curriculum gives a good idea of how elastic his playing can be, never loosing focus: either as a member of the prestigious Trondheim Jazz Orchestra or contributing to the music written by Stale Storlokken for the psychedelic rock band Motorpsycho, and either collaborating with musicians like Paul Lovens, Håvard Wiik, Fredrik Ljunkvist, and Per Zanussi or being an active voice in the projects Albatrosh, Friends & Neighbors and Team Hegdal, this dynamic player is capable of covering a wide ground. Just confirm it.
