After extensive touring in Norway, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, USA and Japan, Cortex released their second album Göteborg in October 2012 and received great glowing reviews from international critics.
“Göteborg establishes Cortex as one of the greatest bands currently working in Norway.” (Eyal Hareuveni in Allboutjazz.com, December 2012)
“Lovely bragging, noisy high energy jazz with sporadic 60s avantgarde, but still so deeply rooted in melody and pulse that it quickly reaches both feet, hips and head and has you in a firm grip until the last note.” (Terje Mosnes in Dagbladet, October 2012)
“You want genre labels, Call it avant garde party music.” (Daniel Spicer in Jazzwise, January 2013)
“Abundant energy, in the footprints of Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman and others. Saxophone, trumpet, drums and bass is a format that requires full presence, and it´s this ability to keep up steam that makes Cortex a live band in a class of its own.” (Roald Helgheim in Dagsavisen, October 2012)
