Dag Magnus Narvesen’s octet DAMANA released it’s debut cd this weekend, recorded almost two years ago and finally released on Portuguese label Clean Feed. This was celebrated with a concert at Bergen Jazzforum on Friday. As it happened, all three of our regular saxophonists were unavailable so we had some top-notch stand-ins: Fredrik Ljungkvist, Eirik Hegdal and Klaus Holm. All three are amazing musicians and it was my first time playing with Fredrik, we had a ball! The other regulars are Kristoffer Kompen on trombone, Adrian Myhr on bass and Øyvind Dale on piano.
