Read "Nuove suggestioni dalla Norvegia: Eyolf Dale e Thomas Johansson con la Scheen Jazzorkester" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


La norvegese Scheen Jazzorkester, nata nel 2010 nella pittoresca regione Telemark, mostra tutto il suo valore in due recenti album realizzati con il trombettista Thomas Johansson e il pianista Eyolf Dale, giovani connazionali che hanno scritto le musiche e si aggiungono all'ensemble nei rispettivi ruoli strumentali.
