Hedvig Mollestad
Ekhidna Black Vinyl Edition

In May 2018 Hedvig received an invitation from Vossajazz - the much loved annual festival established in 1973 - to write the commission work for 2019. This came at the right time, she had been thinking about writing for a bigger group than the trio, and this would be a good opportunity. To make it suitable for album release the full festival version was edited, sharpened and recorded from scratch in Amper Tone studio in Oslo. And this stunning album is the result! In addition to Hedvig on guitar, the line-up includes powerhouse drummer Torstein Lofthus (Elephant9) and percussionist Ole Mofjell, the youngest member, but with solid experience from the European improvisation scene. Keyboard duties are handled by Marte Eberson, probably most known from her five years with Highasakite, and Erlend Slettevoll (The Core and supergroup Grand General, Rune Grammofon 2013). Hedvig first met trumpeter Susana Santos Silva in Mats Gustafsson's NU-ensemble. This three women, three men lineup defies the general notion of progressive jazz as being a typically male activity. Maybe this is why it's so multifaceted, rich on textures and melodically strong? Being the riffmeister Hedvig truly is, she has of course found room for some really strong ones, as well as some subtle and powerful soloing.
Elephant9 - Greatest Show On Earth
Greatest Show On Earth

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
It's not often a "jazz" band take the big step from the club scene to a 1300 capacity
rock venue like Oslo's Rockefeller. But then again, Elephant9 is not your ordinary jazz
band. Often being named Norway's best live band - surely quite rare for an
instrumental band - they are equally popular in jazz and rock circles. On this, their fifth
studio album, Elephant9 are back to the core trio of their first two albums; Ståle
Storlokken, Nikolai Hængsle and Torstein Lofthus, three of Norway's finest musicians.
"The Greatest Show On Earth" displays some truly astonishing playing and is a more
dynamic, structured and focused album with all tracks clocking in around the six
minute mark. It's also very much a trio effort where all members are equal, and not
only a vehicle for a soloist. Ståle Storlokken (keyboards) is widely considered the most
inventive keyboard player on the Norwegian scene, his playing with bands like
Supersilent, Humcrush, Motorpsycho, Terje Rypdal and countless others being firm
testament to this. Nikolai Hængsle (bass) is since long a member of popular rock
group Big Bang as well as Ketil Moster's quartet Moster!, Needlepoint and Band Of
Gold. Torstein Lofthus (drums) is probably the most in demand session drummer in
Norway. "Lashes of mellotron and textured guitars create a sprawling psychedelic jazz
epic. Few have come close to the greatness of this in recent years. " Record Collector
(UK) "There's no denying the thrusting vitality charging through the snaking chicanes
conjured by this formidable fusion unit. " Jazzwise (UK)
