Jaga Jazzist (NO) & Sinfonia Rotterdam (NL)
Jaga Jazzist with Sinfonia Rotterdam, a spectacular collaboration which underlines the fluidity, freedom and maverick brilliance of Norway’s thriving music scene.
Jaga Jazzist are a unclassifiable, a 9-piece collective whose music rampages across boundaries, combining jazz, electronics, post-rock and more with exhilarating energy and precision. Their creative lynchpin Lars Horntveth already played the festival, about ten years ago. For this show, they’ll perform new versions of songs from all four of their albums in specially-commissioned, widescreen orchestral arrangements.
“Ground floor for musical innovation, lunacy and special-offer ideas…” (NME)
“… a feast of infectious beats and exciting arrangements delicately resolved with nuance to produce a variety of atmospheric pleasures” (The Wire)
