Norwegian festival news

The Nattjazz (Nightjazz) programme (Bergen 21 May-31 May) looks pretty complete now (but they have no English version yet). I've plans for John Hassell, Sex Mob, Tinariwen, Ray Anderson (with Lew Soloff) and All Ears All Scars with Lasse Marhaug, Maja Ratkje og Paal Nilssen-Love (let's talk money and time later, OK?).

My local paper (Bergens Tidende) is in Texas interviewing Enslaved during the South By Southwest Festival. Here they claim that Enslaved and Shining are going to make the commissioned work at the Molde International Jazz Festival this summer (14-19 July)! We might get "21st Century's Schizoid Man" there! (Still only a Norwegian site here).
It seems like they try to keep their artists secret for a while, but a look at the tour info at ECM, give away these artists for the festival:
Marcin Wasilewski Trio (16 July)
Charles Lloyd Quartet (Jason Moran, Reuben Rogers, Eric Harland)(17 July)
Christian Wallumrød Ensemble (18 July, church concert)
Manu Katché Group (15 july).
