Label: Jazzaggression Records

Format: LP

Genre: Jazz

In stock


Previously unreleased Spiritual Jazz from Norway recorded in Asker Church in the mid 1970s. Playful rhythmical jazz with Modal and Latin influences with band members from That's Why, Ruphus and En Tiempo.
The Jan Simonsen Quintet was an active mid 1970's, Norwegian jazz group. Drawing up influences from Herbie Hancock to McCoy Tyner the group’s very rhythmical approach fell positive with the crowd and landed them regular gigs at the famous Club7 venue in Oslo, the group also performed at Molde Jazz 1976. In Winter that same year the group recorded these four tracks to reel using Asker church for maximum reverb effect and broadened acoustics. Jan Simonsen on keys, Svein Hansen on flute and percussions, Trond Mathisen on sax and percussions, Kristian Røstad on bass and Thor Bendiksen on drums. Jazzaggression is pleased to present these 4 tracks on vinyl for the first time. Vinyl comes in special heavy paste-on sleeve with a printed inner sleeve containing full story and photos. Limited to 500 copies!
