Norwegian music site Ballade writes about a Big Band Festival, that is held in Tønsberg and Nøtterøy (try to pronounce that, if you're not Norwegian). Well, big band jazz is not my main interest, but I have to admit that sometimes big bands may swing like hell, and win me over. One of the festival bands is Blood Sweat Drum n Bass Big Band. They have worked with Jørgen Munkeby from Shining and Arve Henriksen. Munkeby plays with them 8 August.
How about a big band with Aphex Twin and Björk as favorites? I think you'd better check them out.
