Elephant9 med Reine Fiske

Ny skive ute på Rune Grammofon : Atlantis

 

On their fourth album, counting the limited vinyl only ”Live At The BBC”, Elephant9 join forces with Reine Fiske, the quite excellent Swedish guitarist from Dungen, The Amazing and Träd, Gräs och Stenar, for yet another heavy slice of mindblowing modern rock´n´jazz psychedelia. Writers have called upon names like Tony Williams´ Lifetime, Deep Purple, Brian Auger, Emerson Lake & Palmer and early seventees Miles Davis to describe the music, pointing to the fact that Elephant9 are comfortable in both rock and jazz.

Reine Fiske makes his entrance on the title track, the long intro section almost sounding like it could have come off an early Terje Rypdal album. No coincident considering Fiske is a big Rypdal fan and Storløkken being Rypdal´s keyboard player for well over a decade. His guest spot ends with the final thirteen minute tour de force and its heavy funk intro reminiscent of another guitar great and his Band of Gypsys.

”Atlantis” is all originals, four from Storløkken and three from Eilertsen, recorded at Stockholm´s legendary Atlantis studio under the masterful supervision of Janne Hansson and the band´s regular engineer Christian Engfelt.

Ståle Storløkken is widely considered to be the most inventive keyboard player from the fertile Norwegian jazz scene, his playing with bands like Supersilent, Humcrush, Motorpsycho, Terje Rypdal and countless others being firm testament to this.

Nikolai Eilertsen was first known to the Norwegian public through his playing with popular rock group Big Bang and later chart topping pop group The National Bank.

Torstein Lofthus is a most versatile drummer who has done a lot of session work as well as playing in jazz, soul and rock bands, most notably blackjazzers Shining.

Tone Hille Bringsdal

 

Tone Hille Bringsdal er en singer-songwriter med føttene plantet i Americana, med inspirasjon fra både folk, country og blues. Låtene, som omhandler søkende og konfronterende karakterer i et ofte merkverdig værbitt landskap, er gjerne preget av et politisk (ukorrekt) og noe satirisk underspill.

John Fullbright (US) + support: Unnveig Aas

Dette er en ung artist som bærer en tung bør. Han er født i Woody Guthries hjemtrakter nær Okemah i Oklahoma, og han sammenlignes med de aller fremste representantene i den store og litt uformelige americana-sjangeren. Fra salige Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle via smått mytiske Ryan Adams og den relativt nyslåtte mesteren Jason Isbell til en artist som er sin helt egne sjanger, Randy Newman: navnene dukker opp når 26-åringen John Fullbright skal beskrives.
