Harlem in the Himalayas

June 21, 2013

Part of the ECM CD Release Concert Mini-Series

The ensemble of Christian Wallumrød continues to evolve in its own idiosyncratic way on the new album Outstairs. By now, Wallumrød's compositional signature is instantly recognizable. Nobody else writes pieces like this - multi-dimensional chamber music inspired by the sonorities of Norwegian folk and church music, influenced by early music and the post-Cage avant-garde, and liberated by jazz's freedom of thought. This time around, the ensemble members share the arranging credits between them, making the music still more organic and flexible as new sound combinations emerge.

With Christian Wallumrød on piano, harmonium, and toy piano, Eivind Lønning on trumpet, Gjermund Larsen on violin, hardanger fiddle, and viola, Espen Reinertsen on tenor saxophone, Tove Törngren on cello, Per Oddvar Johansen on drums and vibraphone.
