Last week, I did three gigs with Trondheim Jazz Orchestra and Magic Pocket to promote our new album “Kinetic Music“. We played to enthusiastic audiences in Trondheim, Mo i Rana and Tromsø and I really had a good time performing this music again (we haven’t played this concert since it’s premiere at Moldejazz 2010). The band consist of 11 wind instrumentalists, three drummers , a vocalist and the Kinetic Sculptures of Atle Selnes Nielsen. We have a lot of unusual instruments, like a tubax (subcontrabass saxophone), bass saxophone, cimbasso (contrabass valve trombone) and a contra-alto clarinet. So it’s a dream band for a someone like me who’s always looking for new sounds!
Actually, this was my first visit to Tromsø and I was lucky to get a great view of Ishavskatedralen from my hotel window. I’m going back in February to play with my trio so looking forward to that.
