Arild Andersen Group
It is always an event when Arild Andersen comes with something new. The bassist with the singing tone has been a giant on the Norwegian jazz stage since most can remember. We can tell you that he is just as relevant fifty years after Afric Pepperbird.
In addition to being a bassist, Arild Andersen is also a fantastic team leader who knows the art of putting a band together. It was only a question of time before he scooped up Marius Neset. This saxophone wizard from Os is one of the few with a career that can measure up again the boss himself. After many tours and successful festivals, Andersen understood that there was only one thing to do with this great band – keep going.
A driven and expressive saxophonist, piano jazz’s first lyricist, and a percussion section that oozes sophisticated and top class. Groups do not get much better than that!
