Public hearing of Team Hegdal «Vol 3»!

Saxophonist/composer Eirik Hegdal has been one of the major forces of the new wave of exiting jazz musicians coming out of Norway for the past 15 years. He is well known for his many projects with Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. Among the projects is the jazz orchestra featuring the great saxophonist Joshua Redman, playing compositions by Hegdal.

Team Hegdal is Hegdal’s laboratory for smaller ensembles. On this third release from the quartet, the swedish piano comet, Oscar Grönberg, guests. This is great musicians, playing great compositions! The titles for «Vol 3» leaves a certain hint of inspiration from the American jazz pianist Thelonius Monk. «More Monk Measurements,” “State of Monk”, and a mix of Monk and the island community outside Trondheim/Norway in the song «Monkholmen”.

A Team of undisputed jazz trotters will guide you through nine customized compositions, released both on CD and LP.
Eirik Hegdal – alto- & baritone saxophones / clarinet
André Roligheten – tenor saxophone / bass clarinet
Oscar Grönberg – piano
Ole Morten Vågan – double bass
Gard Nilssen – drums

Team Hegdal’s «Vol 3» offers touching interaction and virtuoso individualism, from a bubbling tandem; Ole Morten Vågan (double bass) and Gard Nilssen (drums), two brothers in arms; André Roligheten and Eirik Hegdal (saxophones and clarinets), and a Swedish piano hero; Oscar Grönberg.

This is an apolitical public hearing. The musical confrontations and mergers on this album can also be experienced on stages around. Bring out your ears!

The Alpaca Ensemble derives from the piano trio Alpaca Trio, a versatile chamber group frequently collaborating with other musicians, artists and composers, often premiering commissioned pieces.

Composer Eirik Hegdal and the Alpacas have collaborated on four pieces prior to this recording: “Skråpanel” (2006), “Tapet!Tapet!” (2007) and “Elevator” (2010), all of which are available on CD, and “Mekatonia”, a spectacular theatrical performance with Cirka Teater, premiered at Trondheim Chamber Music Festival 2012.
«Moving Slow» is a celebration of the collaboration through more than a decade. This album is a combination of new and old Alpaca music, arranged for this particular rendering of Alpaca Ensemble.  Available as CD, LP, download and streaming services from February 11. 2014. Enjoy!
