Nordic Jazz Fest - IPA

Over the last decade or so, there has been great jazz coming out of Scandanavia. IPA features combines members from two of the top Swedish/Norwegian groups: Magnus Broo (trumpet) and Ingebrigt Håker Flaten (bass) from Atomic, and Atle Nymo (tenor sax and bas clarinet) and Håkon Mjåset-Johansen (drums) from Motif.

"IPA's new album, Lorena (Bolage), shares an affinity for [Don] Cherry's music as well as the work of Ornette Coleman, an energetic, bracing strain of free bop marked by rigorous improvised interplay in the front line....[Broo's] bold, blustery playing seethes with a muscular melodocism, ripping through tricky, rhythmically complex themes (which set up provocative platforms for improvisation), then busting out with endless streams of lyrical elaboration." -- Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader.

"Norsk-svenska IPA följer upp suveräna debuten med en ny sinnesutvidgande skiva. Bandet börjar på full speed med låten Einstein, som tar andan ur en. Därmed har de rört upp en storm och följande Enigma blir lite som lugnet efter, med ett melodiöst medryckande spel. Därmed har de dragit upp några av huvudlinjerna med skivan. Från det poetiska till det stormiga med bibehållet fokus och ett samspel som nästan är på väg att brista. Kvartetten (Ingebrigt Håker Flaten – bas, Magnus Broo – trumpet, Håkon Mjåset Johansen – trummor, Atle Nymo – tenorsax och basklarinett) känner varandra så väl från allehanda konstellationer att de kan tillåta sig stora friheter med bibehållen skärpa. Ingenting går på rutin hos dessa musiker. Det kräver å ena sidan mycket av lyssnaren, vilket å andra sidan betalar sig tillbaka mångfalt." -- Andreas Lagercrantz

    Thanks. I didn't see the Meetup post, but I was aware of the concert. I'm going to see the ones I'm interested in at Twins.

    I really like your jazz posts, Neal. Maybe we could figure out some cross postings with a jazz meetup? It would be great to expand the genres of the group. Let me know what I can do to help that along.
