Drummer Gard Nilssen is a busy man, overflowing with breakneck rhythms and inventive breaks in a whole host of constellations. As a member of Bushman´s Revenge, Team Hegdal, Susanne Sundfør, SKRIM, Zanussi 5 and countless other orchestras and combos, he is certainly making an impressive footprint in contemporary jazz music. He also truly made his mark as Artist in Residence during Moldejazz 2019.
In Acoustic Unity, we are at the very core of jazz music. The format may be classic, but the music is completely and utterly in the here and now. With its roots anchored in hard bop and the sixties and surfing on the stern wave of Masqualero and Atomic, this is miles from mountain jazz. There may be little reverb here, but there is all the more raw energy and reckless excitement. The trio has played over 100 concerts around the world and has been singled out by several critics as one of the most exciting trios on the European jazz scene. This is one jazz evening you simply must not miss!
