MOLDEJAZZ

This week I was lucky enough to get to play two exciting concerts at Molde International Jazz Festival. The first was pianist Espen Bergs comissioned concert with Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, a piece he based on several mathematic structures. It was a lot of fun, and the music turned out beautifully! A little bonus came the day after when the Jazz Orchestra received a mail from an eager member of the audience, who wrote that it had been one of the biggest musical experiences of his life. This turned out to be none other than Pat Metheny! What a nice surprise for both Espen and the orchestra.

The day after Hanna Paulsberg Concept played a sold out show at Storyville, and it was a lot of fun! National paper Dagbladet was at the concert and wrote a really nice review:
On the other hand, something causes my soul to vibrate is the saxophone game of Hanna Paulsberg. I have yet to attend a concert where she does not add anything extra. The same can also be said of her drummer Hans Hulbækmo, who has a childish curiosity: He makes every battle sound like the first of his life.  The two remaining members of Hanna Paulsberg Concept - pianist Oscar Grönberg and bassist Trygve Fiske - are also obviously very gifted and what makes the four-clover work well together is their knowledge and willingness to underplay. The highlight of their one and a half hour short concert is a jingle song and beautiful spiritual treat in Pharaoh Sanders' spirit. It feels like getting wrapped up in a nice and soft blanket and lying down in Mother Earth's lap.
