Zanussi Five


Three of Norway’s leading sax players – Kjetil Møster, Rolf-Erik Nystrøm and Jørgen Mathisen plus bass player Per Zanussi and drummer Gard Nilssen play an energetic and surrealistic mix of beautiful melodies, improvisation, grooves and acoustic noise. Jørgen Mathisen, one of the top young players in Norway, adds a rough, rock-like feel to the group. This contrasts Rolf Erik Nystrøm’s elegant, contemporary- music-like playing and Eirik Hegdals melodic-lyrical baritone. This unusual horn section alternates between creating virtuosic cacofony, funky riffs, percussive soundscapes and beautiful layers of sound.

Opening Act: Lo-Fi





"This music is vibrant, fast, and very modern. It is expressionistic, replete with saxophones that sigh, moan, honk, and howl. At the same time, it bursts with energy and swing. It's also utterly unpredictable."
-Marc Meyers, All About Jazz

Together with one of Norway’s most talented jazz drummers, Gard Nilssen, they give life to Per Zanussi’s compositions which sound like a cross between free jazz, fifties exotica, contemporary improv, funk, film music and afrobeat.

The band projects a tremendous energy and joy of playing, resulting in ecstatic audiences at their concerts. Since the beginning in 2001 Zanussi five have played a lot of concerts in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Canada as well as Molde jazz festival, Nattjazz festival, Maijazz festival, Porijazz, Bordeaux Jazz Festival, Rochester Jazz Festival, Edmonton and Vancouver Jazz Festivals.

Zanussi Five release their two first records on the Swedish Moserobie Label run by sax player Jonas Kullhammar, receiving brilliant reviews. The records are distributed by Disk Union in Japan. In february/march two more are coming: One as a quintet and one as a 12-piece band with the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra.

Voted ”Best Jazz Band”, ”Best new Jazz Record” and ”Best Live Concert” by one of Norways biggest newspapers for.

Lo-Fi


a mixture of cultural influences turned into a soulful mix of sound....

Lo-Fi is a unique trio from Tokyo Japan that puts together a wide range of music styles together into a collage of funky vibes and rhyme. Bass/Vocalist and song writer 5(Goh) has spent most of his life constantly moving from on e place to another. This experience has helped in shaping the music created by the band. Although their foundation lies in soulful grooves, both live and recorded they change grooves freely, not restricted by any one genre on their sonic journey.

Lo-Fi members:


Goh Hirose (Vocal Bass Guitar)
Nori (Keyboards Vocals Piano)
Yosh (Drums Vocals Percussion)
