Cortex

Cortex to Maijazz with a new album - Legal Tender!


Cortex has gradually become something of an institution in Norwegian jazz, a little free department with a lot of impact. The title of the album that came out in 2016 stolen from one of the countless exuberant reviews the band has received, sums it up most: Avant-garde party music! For here we are talking about unmistakably tough sixties free luggage in the spirit and flesh of Ornette and Don Cherry – but still with a broad line of something Nordic and contemporary.

When the debut came in 2011, one could still refer to Cortex as a jazz line band. Today they are in front of the field. The members of Cortex are sought after with its musicians, among others, Acoustic Unity, Susanne Sundfør, Friends & Neighbors, Bushman’s to name a few. With such a CV, it has to be a good live band!

In 2021, Cortex will release a new album – Legal Tender – visit Spor:5 at Maijazz and you will hear new songs from Cortex.

Thomas Johansson – trumpet, Kristoffer Alberts – saxophone, Ola Høyer – bass, Dag Erik Knedal Andersen – drums

No Scandinavian group since Atomic has so powerfully addressed and remade the free jazz of the 60s like Cortex.

Cortex

Cortex til Maijazz med nytt album - Legal Tender - i bagasjen


Cortex har etter hvert blitt noe av en institusjon i norsk jazz, avdeling litt fritt og mye trøkk. Tittelen på plata som kom i 2016 stjålet fra en av de utallige overstrømmende anmeldelsene bandet har fått med seg, oppsummerer det meste: Avant-garde party music! For her snakker vi umiskjennelig og knalltøff sekstitalls freebag i Ornettes og Don Cherrys ånd og kjød – men likefullt med en brei strek av noe nordisk og kontemporært.

 Da debuten kom i 2011 kunne man fortsatt litt slengete omtale Cortex som et jazzlinjeband. I dag er de i front av feltet. Medlemmene Cortex er ettertraktede med musikanter i blant annet Acoustic Unity, Susanne Sundfør, Friends & Neighbors, Bushman’s for å nevne noen. Med en slik CV er det nødt å bli ett bra liveband !

I 2021 kommer Cortex med nytt album – Legal Tender – så kom Spor:5 på Maijazz kveld så får du høre de nye låtene fra Cortex.

Thomas Johansson – trompet, Kristoffer Alberts – saksofon, Ola Høyer – bass, Dag Erik Knedal Andersen – trommer

No Scandinavian group since Atomic has so powerfully addressed and remade the free jazz of the 60s like Cortex.
