On his third album, recorded for HUBRO, as the other two: debut Bedeus & Hawaii and following Fengselsfugl , guitarist and composer, Trond Kallevåg, sets sail and explores the stories and mystique of American music and culture. With a cinematic quality reminiscent of Ry Cooder and Bill Frisell, it draws inspiration from transformative journeys of hundreds of thousands of Norwegians who embarked on transformative journeys across the vast ocean.
The Norwegian jazz scene has it all: cutting edge-contemporary, orchestral and vocal jazz, jazz rock…and a growing audience, jostling and responding to the music while getting younger and younger. It has a background in folk music, with original instruments and sounds, traditions carried forward and transformed by the people of today. It has a classical music heritage with prominent composers who have left a deep mark. All of this has pushed the nation’s music… ANNE YVEN
