LABtrio meets saxophonist Harald Lassen: Norwegian tour!
Did you know LABtrio is touring in Norway with the incredible Norwegian saxophonist Harald Lassen next week? After a short residence in Oslo, the musicians will present this new-made material exclusively during some exciting concerts in Norway:
05/05 Maijazz (Stavanger)
06/05 Anjazz (Hamar)
08/05 Kampenjazz (Oslo)
02/06 Nattjazz (Bergen) (only trio)
After many years, building up strong band concepts such as the indie jazz quartet Pixel, avant-hiphop sextet Mopti&Bendik Baksaas and the innovative duo DUPLEX, saxophone player Harald Lassen decided to track his jazz roots and write music for a really conventional jazz line up; the piano quartet:
« I’ve missed the «jazz way» of running a band and create music; just write some simple tunes, play through them and do a gig - and let the rest be up to the music.»
Lassen had been searching for a while for the perfect quartet, and then he heard LABtrio in Umeå:
«They totally blew me off with their interaction and musicality! I decided immediately; LABtrio or no one!» «Our concert at Maijazz will be our first time playing together and I’m really excited about the idea of entering such a strong unit as LAB trio with my compositions.
I’m looking forward to not having full control and to be really vulnerable. I guess it’s called «jazz»! »
Lander, Anneleen, Bram, Harald & the Aubergine team hope to welcome you there!
