Moskus: Mirakler

Read "Mirakler" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Not every picture paints a thousand words, but some are more symbolic than others. Take the cover of Moskus's new album, which depicts a hip young hiker facing a two-horned beast in the wilderness. But is the animal real, a mere figment, or even an applied image? And what of that rock pile between them, painted ...

Punkt Festival
Kristiansand, Norvegia
Varie sedi
31.8-2.9.2017

Atomic: Six Easy Pieces

Read "Six Easy Pieces" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Founded in 2000, the Swedish/Norwegian group Atomic has remained true to their uncommon blend of American and European influences over the years. With only one lineup change since their inception, the quintet continues to pay homage--in equal parts--to the post 1960s era in the US, and the inherent innovations of Europe's northern-most region.

Nutshell e Nattjazz 2016

Read "Nutshell e Nattjazz 2016" reviewed by Luca Vitali

È da qualche anno che mancavo da Bergen e non facevo visita all'USF (United Sardine Factory), antica fabbrica di sardine convertita in tempio della cultura di quella città, e come ...

Atomic: Lucidity

Read "Lucidity" reviewed by Troy Collins

Living up to their name in performance and on record, the all-star Norwegian quintet Atomic challenges preconceived notions regarding the stereotypically introspective nature of Nordic jazz. Inspired by the unbridled spirit of 1960s American “Fire Music" and the post-war school of European free improvisation, Atomic eclipses the meditative lyricism of influential local legends like Jan Garbarek ...
