Norway’s answer to Jaco Pastorius on electric bass and Niels Henning Ørsted Pedersen on kontrabass, meets 3 Austrians, 2 saxophone wizards and a monster drummer. An evening with all the existing saxophones on the planet, from the smallest to the largest, mixed up with an adventurous and creative rhythm section. Seamlessly in and out of acoustic and electric musical landscapes, constantly with intensive power, dedication and drive. This quartet is a powerhouse line up, with virtuosity taken to the extreme on all instruments, but the band has also a wonderful other side to making music together, joy, liveliness and the expression of art with a sense of positive humor.
