Not a band this time, but a label. Aspen Edities is a small, independent record house that has put itself on the map with beautifully crafted releases. The music moves between jazz and improvisation, contemporary classical, pop or folk influences, and electronics. This label night combines regulars with additional combinations of musicians from the close and slightly less close surroundings of Aspen.
Nils Økland is a star on the Hardangervedel, a traditional Norwegian violin with resonance strings. For a long time, he was a member of the award-winning Christian Wallumrød Ensemble. If possible, his solo work leaves an even deeper impression. In recent years, he has been a regular guest with Linus + Økland/Van Heertum/Zach. His music is virtuosic , expressive and permeated with a vast melancholy. Northern with a very authentic stamp.
