TIC All About Jazz 600

This is frequently sparse, impressionistic music made by great players with a shared vision. Yet it’s anything but monochromatic: it goes from rubato to rhythmic, traditional to modern. A beautiful example of Norwegian jazz, it marks Hildegunn Øiseth and the rest of her band as players to watch. A reunion would be most welcome. Mark Sullivan allaboutjazz.com

Time_is_coming_195

Impeccably recorded, with delicacy and with depth, this album has added five years to my life. As Hildegunn breathes life into her trumpet and into her bukkehorn (goat’s horn), I listen and I learn to breathe properly, to relax.

Sharaka Ensemble er et unikt samarbeid mellom norske og palestinske musikere! Musikken er inspirert av både norsk og arabisk tradisjon, men utviklet videre til noe egenartet og kraftfullt. Den er full av kontraster, men likevel gir den et hint om en rekke likheter, og en nerve som forbinder de to kulturene på en trollbindende måte!
