Two generations of voices meet as good neighbors in the new group Meson, when Elin Rosseland (1959) comes together with Ingeborg Gravem Sollid (2001)
This year's Buddy award winner Elin Rosseland in a new band
The initiative for Meson came from one of the great profiles of Norwegian jazz life, the musician and pedagogue Torgrim Sollid. He says: - I invited myself, my daughter Ingeborg, Elin Rosseland and the drummer Andreas Wildhagen to the studio. What are we going to do now, eh? Think ahead and listen to each other. You won't get to know more from me. Think ahead and listen to others - if you find something you can build on, use it. If you can't find something you can use, then you have to come up with something else that others can use then and there. Think ahead and listen to each other. (Jazznytt/NTT)
It resulted in the group Meson and an album that came out a short time ago. The quartet appears with an original expression, stripped of electronics, and completely focused on voices and instruments. Salt peanuts.eu summarizes a highly laudatory review as follows: This has become a brilliant collaboration, which should get the 80-year-old Kapellmeister out on the road again. I think hearing this in concert will be a great musical experience. A great release!
Moldejazz has taken Salt Peanuts at their word, and there is every reason to expect a great musical experience!
