Don’t be afraid of the dark.
This trio of creative Jazz musicians aim to shine a light into the lesser know quarters of our musical imaginations. The music of these three is warm yet exciting, experimental yet inviting. The Dark is not to be feared!
Rorke, Jensen and Mofjell are all alumni of the prestigious Trondheim “Jazzlinja”, a school that has produced the bulk share of Norwegian Jazz talent for the last decades. Their new CD, simply entitled The Dark is now available through the Norwegian label Just For The Records.
Australian saxophonist Daniel Rorke is known to many in Iceland, as he has been based here on and off over the last decades, and has in one context or another played with almost every known Icelandic Jazz musician at one time or another. For Jensen and Mofjell the Icelandic release tour of The Dark’s new CD will be their Icelandic debut!
The trio setting of tenor saxophone, double bass and drums may be a stalwart of the Jazz idiom, but The Dark push this context to new and interesting realms. One Australian and two Norwegians by nationality, their music is colourful and sometimes unpredictable. This trio absorbs influence from the Nordic Jazz masters, the New York downtown scene, and even distant folk and world music. Like a deep jet black these influences coalesce into a consistent warm hue.
Bring your ears, relax you gaze and allow The Dark to overtake you. An experience of modern, creative improvised music calls to you from the shadows.
