HITRA

HITRA plays imaginative original music and improvisations. Born at the Norges Musikkhøgskole in Oslo, the band reunites four artists who have extensively investigated contemporary art forms: {{m: Hilmar Jensson = 23269}} (guitar), {{m: Alessandro Sgobbio = 53650}} (piano, compositions), {{m: Jo Berger Myhre = 121824}} (bass) and {{m: Øyvind Skarbø = 28781}} (drums). Inspired by a Norwegian county which covers hundred islands, islets and skerries, Hitra creates a genre-fluid journey into lost and hidden places. Debut album Transparence has been released on February 19, 2021 under AMP Music & Records.

Hilmar Jensson: Transparence

Read "Transparence" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Hitra: Transparence

Read "Transparence" reviewed by Emmanuel Di Tommaso


Immaginiamo un'isola chiamata Hitra, circondata da infinite altre isole e scogliere, e percossa dai gelidi venti del Mar di Norvegia, che si insinuano fra le barche e nelle case dei pescatori, tagliano i volti dei pochi vecchi abitanti del luogo, fino a infrangersi contro i monumentali fiordi secolari. “Isola," dal latino “terra insula," a sua volta ...

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!
