Jez Nelson presents Scandinavian super-group Atomic, recorded in concert at The Vortex. Pianist Havard Wiik, bassist Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love met at Trondheim's music conservatory in the early 90s and formed Atomic, with Swedes Frederik Ljungkvist on reeds and trumpeter Magnus Broo, in 2000.
Their debut album, "Feet", heralded the birth of a new Scandinavian sound, which brought together contemporary rock & pop influences with the jazz tradition. Tonight they play music from their latest record, "Theater Tilters", and reveal how over the last decade their music has developed, becoming harder, faster and louder.

Hi there!

Only just noticed the thread - very thoughtful of you to mention this; I'm just listening to it now before heading off to have my curved soprano adjusted.

Kind regards
Tom:cool:

It was lovely to hear Kenny Wheeler but did not like Atomic at all, I'm afraid - too noisy and shapeless for my sensibilities, and not Sibelian enough.

Kind regards
Tom

If they are noisy and shapeless it might equally apply...............;}.
I do think that there is Scandinavian Jazz and then Scandinavian Jazz. I like the folk based music - Nils Landgren, Jan Garbarek, Tomasz Stanko, and also the more ambient stuff - Nils Petter Molvaer and Arve Henriksen, but not the noisy rock based stuff which is too close to unreconstructed modern Jazz combineed with the worst of European experimental rock improvisation - if you pardon my Welsh! :w00t::shocked:

Have a nice day, OG

I didn't think it was that bad.

Not easy listening but definitely listenable.

I am being a little unfair.....I've been told millions of times to stop exaggerating.........:shocked::w00t:;}

Kind regards

Reality is that I like challenging music and only heard about 3 minutes of the broadcast. Will come back to it and share more reflective thoughts subsequently.
Have a good day, Mamos

I am going to dedicate today to looking into some of the artists you mentioned in your post. I do not know an awful lot about the this style of music although I have been a fan of Jan Garbarek since I lived in Norway in the early 90s.

Jules will be pleased. She has to put up with some pretty hardcore jazz music at times. Bless her.

Quite enjoying Masqualero at the moment. I know it wasn't in your list but Nils Petter Molvaer did play with them
