Bushman's Revenge feat. Anja Lauvdal & Per "Texas" Johansson
Power-trio with exciting guest artists!
Power trio Bushman's Revenge with guitarist Even Helte Hermansen and bassist Rune Nergaard are highlighted by this year's AIR, drummer Gard Nilssen, as one of his most important projects.
The band started back in 2003 and has released 9 records so far – most of them on the Norwegian label, Rune Grammofon. The trio has in many ways been Gard’s education. They were all in their early 20s when they started and the band has since day one had a firm grasp on the concert atmosphere and the audience on both sides of the Atlantic.
They have been described as a missing link between Albert Ayler and Black Sabbath, as well as a Marshall amplifier version of John Coltrane's Interstellar Space. Bushman's Revenge has simply helped to revitalise the focal point between rock and jazz. With his latest album, Jazz, fritt etter hukommelsen, the band surprised its audience by going into a more meditative and hushed direction.
They wish to continue following this direction at the exclusive concert at Moldejazz, with an expanded lineup including brilliant Swedish saxophonist, Per "Texas" Johansen, and eternally creative, Anja Lauvdal (Musk, Bridge, Finity, Pest).
