With Seven Days in August, Svend Undseth takes us back to the musical landscape of his first solo album, Grenseland.
Large soundscapes color the melancholy found in the melody lines.
The voice of Tracee Meyn and her interpretation of the lyrics by Dag Furuholmen comes out in the most breathtaking way.
Delicate complex rhythms and exciting improvisations on Alto Flute and Bass Clarinet also characterize the album.
Svend Undseth and Erik Wesseltoft has embraced many genre,
but with Easy Classics for Flute and Guitar they go back to where it all started, the Classical music.
This album was recorded live in the rehearsal room and no edits are made.
This proves the authenticity of performers and the way they follow each other in pure joy of musicianship.
We hope you will enjoy this record of easy listening classical tunes from composers like Antonini, Giuliani and Gossec.
Due to the absence of new releases in this musical tradition, we have decided to keep Jazz/Fusion music alive with newly written compositions.
More or less the same musicians as on previous releases have come together again to make great Fusion for you.
Svend Undseth has again made all the compositions and production.
We hope this firecracker of an instrumental album will delight and inspire listeners to take part in the energy and joy of this music.
Funky rhythms, rock guitar solos, captivating ballads, inspired horn section and bouncy arrangements characterize this collection.
You might even experience fireworks diving into intricate details.
This Norwegian jazz/rock CD with funky elements, let the good times of the seventies return in a new shape.
Together with his band and a whole bunch of guest, he has created a fusion album with roots in the original jazz-rock canon.
We just say: Enjoy!
Just like the album Blue Stairs from 2003, The Neon Jazz Collection was also ment to be a computerbased album.
A look at the list of musicians, shows that it did not turn out this way.
With three generations of musicians, the music carried itself into a new dimention of modern jazz.
The combination of complex simplicity and expriments creates moments of stunning hights for the listener.
The music draws its inspiration from the progrock and jazz rock scene during the 70ies and 80ies witch the composer was a part of.
With new technique and the musical reality of the new century combined with a melodic nerve,
the music on this album will continue to surprise you every time you put it on.
