Drummer Erik Nylander is a busy man on the norwegian jazz scene, playing in numerous bands in all sorts of styles such as Ola Kvernberg Trio og Kobert. After thinking a long time of making his own orchestra, he gathered a bunch of collegues in the studio. He is now launching his first self-produced album with this band, February 6, 2010.
Behind the name Erik Nylanders orkester six musicians play in several constellations, experimenting in a wide range of character. The sound of A FESTA VALE TUDO could remind you of Sigur Rós, Jim Black or even pling plong and indian raga music. Melancolic, beautiful and a little abstract.
