Barxeta (Losen 2012)


Record Details


Second album from world class trio: Alex Acuna, Jan Gunnar Hoff and Per Mathisen

iDrum Magazine: “Superb trio with a highly succesful fusion of jazz, rock, funk and world music. The trio combines musicality, groove and a strong melodic sense on this evocative and highly recommended album” “For those believing that Norwegian artists are all about glacial cool and rubato tone poems, Barxeta demonstrates there’s plenty of fire in the far, far north”

Jazz Journal:  “The exciting opener Belarus..Overall the album is dominated by some fine acoustic and electric keyboard and bass work and some fine compositions”

Progressive Rock “First class fusion with a blend of passionate, high energy and gracefully elegant music performed by three world class musicians…Jan Gunnar Hoff combines the melodic sensibility and dexterity of Lyle Mays with the edginess of Chick Corea” “There is a synchronicity amongst these three musicians that is hard to find..both breathtaking and first class all the way”

Dagbladet, Oslo: (5/6) “When two of our best men invites a world leading drummer, it is really happening”

Avisa Nordland (5/6)
