Håvard Stubø: guitar, Steinar Nickelsen: organ, Håkon Mjåset Johansen: drums
These three musicians, all among Scandinavia’s finest young jazz artists, have played together for almost a decade. Over the course of their time together, they have developed a unique expression where ferocious energy meets intense lyricism to create pure musical joy.
While still being open to other forms of music, they share a common background in modern jazz, and through extensive touring they have developed a highly intuitive way of playing together, often leading to musical dialogues that border on the telepathic.
The result: groovy acoustic jazz with a Nordic sensibility, inspired by Eddie Harris, Wayne Shorter and Jim Hall, but also with clear references to newer Nordic/European music.
Stubo is recognized as one of Norway´s finest jazz guitarists, and works regularly with several bands, most notably JUPITER featuring Jonas Kullhammar, Håvard Stubø Quartet, Wes!, and Jazz & Fly Fishing, Has worked with many prominent musicians such as Tomasz Stanko, Jimmy Owens and Arve Henriksen.
Steinar Nickelsen – Hammond B3
Nickelsen was voted young Norwegian Jazz Musician of the year in 2003, and has played with many leading musicians, touring with Pat Metheny. Nickelsen studied at the Music Academy in Oslo, at IACP in Paris, at the jazz department in Trondheim, church department in Trondheim, and at the soloist program at the Rhythmic Conservatory in Copenhagen. Currently lives and works in Shanghai, China and plays with many projects including the multiple-China-tour veterans Excess Luggage.
Johansesn established himself from an early age as one of Norways most active drummers. He has won Norwegian Grammys with the bands Urban Connection and Come Shine, and has been touring and recording with artists such as Jan Garbarek, Michael Brecker, Steve Grossman, and Chick Corea. He is active in a dozen bands including Excess Luggage, Motif, Maryland and Håvard Wiik Trio.
