Mathias Eick: When We Leave LP
Mathias Eick's playing, which according to the New York Times radiates a "pristine yet penetrating tone", is complemented by his supporting players. Violinist Hakon Aase, shadows the leader with lines that reflect a profound background in jazz. Drummers Helge Andeas Norbakken and Torstein Lofthus mirror their exchanges with precision. Pianist Andras Ulvo and bass guitarist Audun Erlien ferry ideas between sections. The swell of Stian Carstensen's steel guitar adds a dimension of mystery.
