Mike Mainieri

Mike Mainieri (vibraphone, marimba) has worked with a bunch of Norway's finest ("The Norwegian posse") to make "Northern Lights". Let's name them: Bugge Wesseltoft, Jan Bang, Paolo Vinaccia, Anders Engen, DJ Strangefruit, Bendik Hofseth, Eivind Aarset, Lars Danielsson (ooops, Swedish!) and not to forget Nils Petter Molvær. This is a cool, relaxing album, full of good vibes (you got that one?). On the cover it says P and C in 2006, but I think this one is fresh on the market.
The titles are full of movie references, and "Ive seen it all" (Björk, Sjon, Von Trier), from "Dancer in the dark", is oh, so nice.
