Info for PoliturPassiarer

Über-percussionist Kleive orchestrates. It's what he does. Whether playing in an ultraimprovisational duet setting or in tightly and specifically composed pieces for 13 musicians such as on this CD, his four extraordinarily individual and agile limbs create percussive poetry. This is the second Losen Records release to feature the excellent Scheen Jazzorkester (the first was this year's Fjon featuring Rune Klakegg). To quote the Scheen Jazzorkester website concerning PoliturPassiarer, These are very complex works, which make unusual demands on both the rhythmic precision and virtuosity of the band. The music is largely scored but there is intermittent space for soloists such as saxophonist André Kassen, heard to such great effect on the recently released Losen Records album, Pomona and veteran Guttorm Guttormsen, also on soprano sax. Audun has worked with international giants such as Mike Stern, Pat Metheny, Marilyn Mazur, Charles Lloyd, Mike Mainieri, Anders Jormin and home-grown giants such as Jon Balke, Petter Wettre, Terje Rypdal, Jan Gunnar Hoff, Jan Bang, Nils Petter Molvær, Sidsel Endresen and Bugge Wesseltoft to name but a few. Whoever he performs with, Audun Kleive consistently weaves his magic, but there again, as a leader, he does have four wands to wave as opposed to the traditional one. PoliturPassiarer is impressive, ambitious music, pioneering and peerless.

Scheen Jazzorkester

Scheen Jazzorkester (SJO)
was established in 2010 as a professional large jazz ensemble based in Skien, Telemark, Norway. It has succeeded in becoming a major force in Norwegian progressive composer based ensembles along with similar units in Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim. Since its foundation SJO has played several prestigious jazzfestivals as well as club gigs in Norway. Five albums have been released so far, to great critical acclaim, two of them in 2017. (PoliturPassiarer and Tamanoar). SJO consists of 12 musicians, with guests depending on the various projects. Among the members of the band, Audun Kleive must be mentioned as a drummer of international stature. The trumpeter Thomas Johansson is also an international touring musician. Guttorm Guttormsen and Rune Klakegg are veterans on the Norwegian Jazz scene, and the outfit spans several generations of musicians. It consists of both jazz and classically trained musicians, and this contributes to its special sound: Contemporary jazz and Nordic sound meets classical music. SJO i supported by the Cultural Fund of Norway, Sørnorsk Jazz Centre and Telemark County.
