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.
Master Oogway - Earth And Other Worlds
Master Oogway
Earth And Other Worlds
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Rune Grammofon)

Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Håvard Nordberg Funderud - guitar Lauritz Lyster Skeidsvoll - saxophone Karl Erik Horndalsveen - double bass Martin Heggli Mellem - drums It is with great pleasure we can introduce a new name to our roster. Master Oogway are four young musicians aged between 23 and 26. They met at the Norwegian Academy of Music in 2015 with a common desire to play vibrant, improvised music with strong themes and room for spontaneity at a high energy level. Like many players on the young, Norwegian progressive jazz scene their instrumental skills are already highly developed but never used to show off. "Earth And Other Worlds" is the quartet's second album, their debut was released on the Clean Feed label in 2018. Their new effort is more dynamic and varied and shows more mature and accomplished songwriting, not to mention the stronger group interactions and the impressive solo stretches from sax player Skeidsvoll and guitarist/composer Funderud. While it's fair to say that they operate in much of the same musical landscape as Bushman's Revenge or Kokofant, it's equally fair to note that their general approach and attitude comes with a slightly stronger emphasis on jazz. Håvard Nordberg Funderud finished his bachelor at the Norwegian Academy of Music in 2018 and has also studied in Gothenburg and Copenhagen. He is involved in several projects, but Master Oogway is his priority. Lauritz Lyster Skeidsvoll and Karl Erik Horndalsveen have both finished their education at the same academy as Funderud. Martin Heggli Mellem is currently finishing his bachelor at the jazz program at NTNU in Trondheim.
I Like To Sleep - Daymare
I Like To Sleep
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Rune Grammofon)

Genre:Organic Grooves
Amund Storlokken Åse - vibraphone Nicolas Leirtro - baritone guitar Oyvind Leite - drums It is with great pleasure we can introduce another new name to our roster. Taking their name from a Thelonious Monk quote, I LIKE TO SLEEP are three young Norwegian musicians, all 22 years old. Nicolas and Oyvind first met in high school in Trondheim before they joined up with Amund in a youth big band. It soon became apparent that they shared the same musical background centered around 70s progressive rock, classical music, jazz and improvisation. Soon after the trio was formed, first for fun, but soon with higher ambitions, they won the prestigious "Young Jazz Musicians of the Year" award in 2018. "Daymare" is the trio's second album, their debut was released on the small All Good Clean Records label in 2017. While their debut showed a lot of quality and promise, their new effort is a huge step forward on all accounts, especially considering their young age. The lazy way would be to place I LIKE TO SLEEP with certain other Rune Grammofon "power jazz" groups, but their unique instrumentation, natural openness and youthful curiosity place them apart from the rest. All three members are currently in the middle of their jazz studies at NTNU in Trondheim. They are active as composers, freelancers and in other projects, including concert booking on the city's vibrant music scene. In case you recognize the name, Amund is the son of Ståle Storlokken who as a member of Supersilent appeared on our very first release back in early 1998, and later on several more records with Supersilent, Humcrush, Elephant9 and a couple of times with Motorpsycho. The circle is closed.

As David Fricke points out in his liner notes, this is not just another novelty guest-project, the Krokofant on "Q" is like a brand new band. In fact, all the involved are so happy with this album that there's more to come with a bunch of new material already written. After three albums in three years as a trio, and sensing the possible danger of being stuck in a formula, they all felt a need to try something new, taking the band one step further. Especially Tom Hasslan, guitarist and main composer, felt an urge to expand the canvas and sonic possibilities. Ståle Storlokken (Elephant9, Supersilent, Terje Rypdal) was the trio's first choice for a keyboardist. He had seen Krokofant live in 2015 and, in his own words "had an instant kick", so he said yes straight away. Ingebrigt Håker Flaten (Scorch Trio, The Thing, Atomic) had seen them the same year, and practically invited himself to join up at some time. Hasslan's tunes are perfect vehicles for Storlokken to present the full scope of his playing; from sheer pastoral beauty to full on jazz skronk. The same can be said about Mathisen, who is given ample room for soloing. By introducing Håker Flaten and his bass, work was lifted from Hasslan's shoulders while a "proper" rhythm section was born, Skalstad and Flaten instantly bonding. Tom Hasslan - guitars Axel Skalstad - drums Jorgen Mathisen - saxophones Ståle Storlokken - Hammond organ and keyboards Ingebrigt Håker Flaten - bass.
Kjetil Mulelid Trio - What You Thought Was Home
Kjetil Mulelid Trio
What You Thought Was Home
LP+CD | 2019 | EU | Original (Rune Grammofon)
28,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Eight new beguiling Mulelid compositions expertly balancing energetic, often rhythmically complex and harmonically rich music with beautiful and evocative melodies. It's not all about Mulelid though, bassist Hegge (31) and drummer Winther (28) effortlessly conjure additional layers, tones and textures, incorporating a sense of calm; an unhurried yet constantly unfolding sound world which can be said to be distinctively Scandinavian, most typically heard in Hegge's sole composition "Bruremarsj (Wedding March)". Kjetil André Mulelid grew up in the small village of Hurdal, and started playing the piano when he was nine, after hearing Chopin on the stereo. In highschool he had the good fortune of studying with some inspiring piano teachers. Later he did a bachelor degree in 267 performance at NTNU in Trondheim, again being blessed with top teachers, such as Erling Aksdal, Vigleik Storaas and Espen Berg. He is also a member of 267 quartet Wako. Bjorn Marius Hegge has been making waves on the Norwegian 267 scene lately, with his quintet's debut album "Hegge" winning a Norwegian Grammy. He also has his own trio with pianist Oscar Grönberg and young drummer ace Hans Hulbækmo.

Elephant9 - Greatest Show On Earth
Greatest Show On Earth
LP+CD | 2018 | EU | Original (Rune Grammofon)
26,99 €*
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)
