With their captivating cinematic sound and a warm and intense presence, Little North bonds with their audience from the very first note.
With their captivating cinematic sound and a warm and intense presence, Little North bonds with their audience from the very first note. The sound of the band is way bigger than their classic piano trio constellation suggests. In a melting pot of modern minimalism and Nordic jazz tradition and with an intensity that draws threads to the jazz scene of New York, Little North has what it takes to add the next exciting chapter to the history of Scandinavian jazz.
Their third album 'Finding Seagulls' has been warmly received by critics at home and abroad and has been 'album of the week' on Danish National Radio P8 Jazz. The album has received international airplay on UK Radio Jazz FM and Berlin Radio Flux FM, among others.
On the upcoming album 'Familiar Places' the trio expands on their already well defined sound.
The energy and warmth of the guitar and raw expressive intention from the trumpet, adds new depths to their musical universe, while the strong sound of the trio makes a continuum. 'Familiar Places' presents a wide range of emotions and sonic landscapes while continuously diving into the essence of Little North.
'Familiar Places' features Kasper Tranberg (DK) on trumpet and Viktor Spasov (SE) on guitar. Tranberg has been a strong voice on the European music scene for more than two decades. Lately he is, beside his own work, known for his collaborations with a.o. Marc Ducret, Steve Swallow, Tim Berne, Django Bates, Tyshawn Sorey, Gianluigi Trovesi and Yusef Lateef.
Swedish/Bosnian guitar jedi Viktor Spasov is a rising star hailing from Stockholm, Sweden. His easily recognizable and expressive sound on the guitar is beautifully integrated on 'Familiar Places'. Spasov recently released the second EP in his own name, presenting story driven indie music in the form of a singer/songwriter.
