(Exit) Knarr

Odin Records ODIN 9579

Two largish ensembles from the northernmost parts of Europe have created programs that are almost antithetical but reflect the non-standard ethos of the ever-burgeoning Nordic improvised music scene. Precise and somewhat solemn, (Exit) Knarr is the result of a commission for peripatetic Norwegian bassist Ingebrigt Håker Flaten from his country’s Vossajazz Festival interpreted by an octet of Scandinavian players. Performed by a similar cross section of musicians from Iceland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark, the Copenhagen-based Horse Orchestra is a club band par excellence. Directed by local pianist Jeppe Zeeberg, the septet propels a set of originals and adapted tunes in a highly rhythmic, almost zany manner. MORE
