You should be nine friends! Or perhaps better even ten? Lars Horntveth might have been thinking big when he founded the school band at a tender age of 14 in the Norwegian municipality Tonsberg. That was in 1994—and with ten music instrumentalists on stage, being classified as a jazz band happened quickly, particularly as it was already written in the name. But on listening closely to the 2010 nonetto album “One-Armed Bandit”, a lot less jazz can be heard and more reminiscences of Frank Zappa, Tortoise, Steve Reich, surf sounds, King Crimson, Wagner horns and Western musical moments among others—but shaped into something breath taking and excitingly organic.
Prog-pop-rock in a grand formation, with connections to Motorpsycho, The Thing and all sorts of other bands celebrated by critics. The more you listen to the Norwegian’s complete works the clearer it gets: This band is a perfect match for Enjoy jazz. And that despite individual (ex-)band members like Morten Qvenild (In the Country), Stian Westerhus (Molvær Trio) and Mathias Eick already having performed at the Festival: It is Jaga Jazzist’s premiere in 2013.
