POING is Rolf-Erik Nystrøm on saxophones, Frode Haltli on accordion and Håkon Thelin on double bass. This is the debut album of the charming and virtuoso trio often described as the ‘enfant terribles’ of Norwegian contemporary music. POING works with composers from all over the world, but “Giants of Jazz” features Norwegian composers in their own generation; Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje, Øyvind Torvund, Eivind Buene and Knut Olaf Sunde. The CD also includes a video with music by the Polish composer Nora Wjeck.
On this record: essential extensions.
