I have mentioned the Norwegian trumpet player Stian Omenås a copuple of times here (with Stian Around A Hill and Lille Stille), and now he´s back with a new and fine album called "Klangkammer 1" (NORCD 2012).
He is joined by Rob Waring (vibraphone), Mats Eilertsen (bass) and Erik Nylander (drums) on this release.
On the album there are compositions and sketches for improvisation by Stian Omenås, and a tune by Mats Eilertsen (check out his new album too). In the liner notes Omenås writes that he wants the music to be chamber music, where the room they play is also some kind of musician.
Yesterday they played a great concert in one of Bergen´s best venues for acoustic music, demonstrating just that.
The album is available on iTunes and eMusic.
