6th Day: 9 June 2018
21:00 Espen Berg Trio (Norway)
Espen Berg (piano), Bardur Reinert Poulsen (double bass), Simon Albertsen (drums) Following Scandinavia’s rich jazz tradition, Espen Berg Trio walks onto a path which is already internationally accepted and also a powerful chapter of international jazz. Their music is melodic with special rhythmic peaks, narrative and powerful, sealed by the trio’s extremely ingenious improvising style of play. With young, but already seasoned musicians, the trio is considered as one of the most special small ensembles of Norwegian jazz scene, having quite enough distinctions in its resume. Espen Berg Trio’s second album, titled Bolge, was released last year by the Japanese company Blue Gleam and internationally two months ago by Odin Records. It is an album that demonstrates vividly the Espen Berg Trio’s musical and creative virtues.
22:00 Brightbird (Portugal)
João Paulo Esteves da Silva (piano), Mário Franco (double bass), Samuel Rohrer (drums) A trio that can operate in a wide musical range using as a vessel the modern jazz or chamber jazz, possessing musicians who know all too well the esthetic idiomatic balance and the controlled improvising musical action. Having a fully interconnected understanding, the three musicians create their own musical universe through collective action. There are distinct elements of fado and folk music in general that shape Joao Paulo Esteves da Silva’ jazz and classical piano style upon which bass player Mario Franco and Swiss citizen of the world drummer Samuel Rohrer can build their own sturdy structures, presenting us with a music which transcends national or any other boundaries and speaks directly to our senses. This is what makes Brightbird a special trio.
23:00 Peedu Kass Momentum (Estonia)
Peedu Kass (double bass), Kristjan Randalu (piano), Toomas Rull (drums) A modern trio follows faithfully the modern European jazz tradition – especially the direction cultivated through the ever influential Scandinavian “school”. With Peedu Kass as their leader followed by two other experienced and outstanding musicians of the Estonian jazz scene, pianist Kristjan Randalu and drummer Toomas Rull, both of the latter having been distinguished through international collaborations and participation in festivals, the group sets its own artistic identity with the release of their first album titled Peedu Kass Momentum in 2016. Modern jazz, lyrical, narrative, adventurous, skillful, dreamy – that is music with all the quality anyone expects by a today’s creative European jazz trio
