Nils Petter Molvaer Nasjonal Jazzscene

Molvær enjoys a great reputation abroad and we can at last welcome him back with a new record in tow! “Switch” is an experience, this progressive artist paints a magnificent landscape with his lyrical signature tone out front. The band consists of a collection of strong voices; drums, bass, slide guitar, creative tangents and optimal electronics take you on a journey that you wish could last longer. Together they break new ground, where Molvær formerly captured the sound of the city, this is an organic whole, reminiscent of nature and its contrasts. The weather changes quickly, the quartet capturing both the sunrises and intense storms, the beautiful and dangerous. The music is unmistakable Molvær, a contemporary Nordic tone of innovative jazz with excitement sprinkled through, all surrouded by top-of-the list musicians!
