Ellen Andrea Wang med Ben Wendel & Manu Katché
En unik og eksklusiv konsert!
The pandemic put an end to last year's concert, but this year it is with great pleasure that we can share the news that the band will play on July 22.
It will be an exclusive "once in a lifetime" concert at Moldejazz where the band plays songs from the catalogs of Ben Wendel's melodic and virtuoso music and Ellen Andrea Wang's dreamy and catchy music.
When Ellen Andrea Wang was Artist in Residence during Moldejazz 2021, she invited Canadian American saxophonist Ben Wendel to play a concert with her former bandmate Manu Kathcé on drums, British guitarist Rob Luft and pianist Andreas Ulvo.
Ben Wendel has been at the forefront of the modern jazz scene for almost twenty years and has been a co-founder of the jazz collective Kneebody, which has been an inspiration for groups such as Louis Cole and Snarky Puppy. Played with musicians like Tigran Hamasyan and Snoop Dogg.
Manu Katché is known from Peter Gabriel, Sting and Jan Garbarek.
The British shooting star Rob Luft is known from collaboration with Django Bates and on Ellen Andrea Wang's latest album «Closeness».
Andreas Ulvo is one of the country's foremost pianists and plays with Mathias Eick and Solveig Slettahjell.
Bassist and vocalist Ellen Andrea Wang is among the country's top musicians where she has pushed jazz in indie music with the band Pixel, stretched musical boundaries with GURLS and she has time and time again emphatically proven that you can make hits and still have both legs in jazz.
