Nutshell e Nattjazz 2016

Read "Nutshell e Nattjazz 2016" reviewed by Luca Vitali

Visitare Bergen in maggio è sempre un terno al lotto: il clima, spesso piovoso, condiziona l'umore, ma quando è il sole ad accoglierti, l'incanto è assicurato. 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 ...

Looking at the cover of the album NyeSongar.no, there's no doubt that the Norwegian saxophonist and goat horn-player Karl Seglem is still exploring the Nordic aesthetic that he perfected on his album NORSKjazz.no (Ozella, 2009). The resemblance between the titles is striking and it is underlined by a Nordic iconography. NORSKjazz.no had an image of tall ...

Andreas Ulvo + Slagr: Softspeaker

Read "Softspeaker" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The music of Norwegian pianist Andreas Ulvo--a member of the Eple Trio and Karl Seglem's acoustic quartet--commutes naturally between the worlds of modern jazz, contemporary classical music, Norwegian folk music and even pop songs. All these musical universes are melted organically to his collaboration with Norwegian contemporary folk music ensemble Slagr.

Read "John Kelman's Best Live Shows of 2012" reviewed by John Kelman

Another tremendous year of travel, to find music in whatever nook and cranny it's hiding. From South Africa to Sweden, from Norway to the Netherlands, and from Germany to home base in Ottawa, Canada, it seemed as though there was an endless supply of great music to see--and even more that sadly had to be skipped. ...
