Presenting a new trio 2017 with Kleive, Jormin
Pianist Jan Gunnar Hoff launches a new trio with Anders Jormin (bass) and Audun Kleive (drums), two of Scandinavia´s most respected jazz performers. Kleive has been a part of Hoff´s projects all the way back since 1992 on Hoff´s much appreciated album Syklus. Jormin and Hoff started their collaboration in 2012 with Hoff´s commission Living for Bodø Jazz Open and later did the album Fly North with Arve Henriksen and Marilyn Mazur. Fly North received a Spellemann (Norw. Grammy)- nomination for 2014.
In September 2017 the Hoff-trio recorded a new album for 2L and Morten Lindberg in Sofienberg Church and a successful tour to Tønsberg Urijazz 13.9, Kristiansand 14.9, Bergen Jazzforum 15.9 and Oslo National Jazzscene September 16. Their album POLARITY (Hoff Ensemble) is now out on 2L, details here.
