Magnetic Book at Kongsberg Jazz Festival
The fifth of seven shows being presented by All About Jazz, in collaboration with the Kongsberg Jazz Festival and Music Export Norway, under the banner Doing It Norway.
Magentic North Orchestra has been Norwegian keyboardist/composer Jon Balke's flagship project since its inception in 1999 with Solarized (EmArcy), and with Magnetic Book, he revisits material from the group's discography, also including Kyanos (ECM, 2002) and Diverted Travels (ECM, 2004) with an expanded 15-piece edition of MNO that includes an additional half dozen strings.
Also featuring trumpeter/vocalist/percussionist Per Jørgensen, percussionist Helge Norbakken, clarinetist Helge Norbakken and bassist Bjørn Kjellemyr, Magnetic Book is sure to be one of the series' most sublime shows.
