Time to start planning your summer holiday? If you are heading for Norway, the Kongsberg Jazz Festival might be worth seeking out. The festival is happening 4 - 7 July, and here are the first artists booked (in Norwegian, but you will recognize the names?).
Lots of artists well known to the readers of this blog, and my first choice would be: Per Jørgensen (trumpet) with Sigbjørn Apeland (organ, harmonium), Morten Qvenild (keyboards), Morten Skage (elbass) and Terje Isungset (drums).
It looks like Arve Henriksen has got the taste for drumming, after banging them with Supersilent. He will visit Kongsberg with a new percussion trio.
Both of these concerts are in a series booked by All About Jazz.
