From 1st to 3rd of February we´re doing a short tour in The Netherlands. We´re traveling together with the great Mathias Eick 6tet, and doing concerts at:
01.02: Bimhuis, Amsterdam
01.02: Playing live on radio VPRO, Amsterdam
03.02: Paradox, Tilburg
We´re really looking forward to play in The Netherlands again, last time was at the North Sea Jazz festival back in 2010. Our latest album, Yonkers, was just released in The Netherlands, so we will for sure bring lots of CDs!
Spread the word, and welcome to Bimhuis and Paradox!
Great review of Yonkers in the major UK magazine, UNCUT! The review is to be published right after new years, but for your eyes only (ba-dam!), here´s a preview:
This is exuberant and occasionally unique playing – merry, vamping melodies get befuddled, hover on the edge of really swinging, and drift in and out of freer territory. Roligheten bashes out some percussive key-tapping and reed abuse to switch up the palette at times, just as fellow Scandos Håkon Kornstad or Mats Gustafsson might do. An emotionally complex, big-hearted set. 4/5 stars.
The major Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet awarded our latest album Yonkers as on of the Top 3 Norwegian jazz releases in 2011! Also, Eyolf Dale´s solo album “Hotel Interludes” was also on the list.
1. Ola Kvernberg – Liarbird
2. Albatrosh – Yonkers
3. Eyolf Dale – Hotel Interludes
