The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra
present
NORSE MYTHS
featuring Arild Andersen, Tommy Smith & Paolo Vinaccia

Nordic jazz has its own heroes, and foremost among them are bassist, Arild Andersen and drummer/percussionist, Paolo Vinaccia. Both are admired as pre-eminent jazz masters, and strongly associated with impressive jazz music that exploits overlooked possibilities.
 
They collaborate here with Tommy Smith and the SNJO to tell new and original jazz stories spun around Norse legends, as together they exploit the unlimited potential of musical symbolism: imaginations will run riot as Thor swings that famous hammer and Odin’s thunder rolls high above the roof of Valhalla.

Scandinavian jazz increasingly incorporates folk and hymnal elements from Norse music. It is a phenomenon that is often reflected in Scottish jazz, and it’s also worth noting that Scottish folk music shares some Norse heritage. This project will demonstrate that startling new music is still waiting to be discovered, created, heard and shared.

Time 7.30pm   (No Pre-concert Talk)
