Molde International Jazz Festival 2009
Just a few hours after I fetched my tickets for the Molde festival, I see that the crazy organizers have come up with another bunch of "must see" artists. So far I have tickets to Arve Henriksen in different settings (Supersilent, Trio Mediaeval, Wallumrød), Atomic, Maja Ratkje, Mary Halvorson and Low Frequency in Stereo with Kjetil Møster. Then they come along with Crimetime Orchestra, Ipa, Han Bennink & Frode Gjerstad and Ingebrikt Håker Flaten & Håkon Kornstad, and more! The 2009 program is great, if you ask me.
And Moldejazz don't go easy on their visitors. This year Arve Henriksen will play a concert at 07:00 in the morning (outdoors), as Karin Krog did last year.
