Info for The Island

One of the most acclaimed jazz releases in 2014 came from the guitarist Hans Mathisen. His music carries the aesthetics of the European jazz scene as well as the virtuosity of the American jazz tradition. The lyrical and melodic moods and the transient sound palette familiar from ECM releases are combined with the modern jazz aesthetics in a personal way.”Exquisite original melodies, exquisite interplay and exquisite solos” writes an enthusiastic Terje Mosnes.

Hans Mathisen received a Grammy Award for his first album “Quiet Songs” in 2005. He is busy as a performer and has also written film music for “Salmer fra kjøkkenet” (2003) and major commissions.
