WHAT: Norwegian Jazz Quartet
WHEN: Sat Jun 16
WHERE: Peter Karmel Building, ANU
Motif are a Norwegian jazz quintet. Are you a Norwegian jazz quintet? Nope. Consequently what follows will seem like gibberish but this is awesome gibberish. Like scat. Or Welsh. Motif is Atle Nymo, Eivind Lønning, Haavard Wiik, Ole Morten Vaagan and Hakon Mjaset Johansen. They hail from such household name bands as Bugge Wesseltofts, the Christian Wallumrød Ensemble, Streifenjunko, Kobuko Senjo and the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. They’ve worked with a who’s-who of Scandinavian jazz: Terje Rypdal, the Jan Garbarek Quartet, Nils Petter Molvaer, Per Jorgensen, Audun Kleive, Sidsel Endresen, Bobo Stenson and many, many more. This is so obscure you’ll be the postscript in hipster. 7.30 pm. $30/$20 door.
