Geir Hjorthol

Born:

Geir Hjorthol was born on September 12, 1952 in Sykkylven, Norway. He started to play the trumpet in a marching band at the age of 14, but it took a few years before he started to work seriously with music – along with his academic career as a teacher and researcher of nordic literature. As a trumpet player Geir combines the sound of the trumpet with alternative playing techniques and electronic sound processing. His free improvised music is inspired by folk music and contemporary, free tonal music. The sounds of Geir’s music come not only from acoustic instruments, electronic effects and the human voice, but from nature and everyday life

Basic Food Group

Active since:

Basic Food Group employs rock trio instrumentation to investigate new combinations of musical genres. Compositions are scored in detail with sections allowed for improvisation. Over time the work is "pureed," that is , reworked and rearranged by the entire band, with elements of the music scrambled and shuffled, and new influences added. We approach it as if we were playing electric chamber music, yet each piece might include combinations of latin, reggae, rock, punk, funk, avante-garde or classical forms. The music has three equal parts, with each instrument playing a different, often non-traditional role

Piotr Budniak Essential Group

"Heart, Mind & Spirit" is the new album of Piotr Budniak Essential Group. The title loosely refers to the concept of a human being as the sum of the spirit, soul and body professed in early Christianity and derived from Hebrew philosophy. The assumption of the team is an attempt to capture the essence of human integrity with the whole palette of his feelings, thoughts, beliefs, experiences and struggles. The musical layer of the album differs from the choices made by the band, using, apart from - acoustic instruments - electric and enriching the whole with electronic elements and modern production procedures. Piotr Budniak Essential Group was formed in 2014

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
