The high-octane power-jazz trio The MaXx joins forces with the renowned Trondheim Jazz Orch. on this energetic album

'Live' with Trondheim Jazz Orchestra & The MaXx is really a story of three young Swedes, Oscar Grönberg, Petter Kraft and Tomas Järmyr meeting in college before starting their formal jazz education in Trondheim. When The MaXx won the prestigious Jazz talent award (JazZtipendiatet) at Molde International Jazz Festival in 2017, they decided to use the opportunity to invite some of their best friends and amazing musicians from their college years, both guitarist Anton Toorell and trombone player Petter Hängsel met the guys from The MaXx at Fridheim Folkhögskola in 2006. A few years later Oscar, Petter and Tomas reunited in Trondheim, and The MaXx was born.

The MaXx developed the music on 'Live' through hours of jamming in their studio in an old German bunker in Trondheim. Simultaneously with the music slowly taking shape, a theme dealing with the youth's fascination for dystopian sci-fi, involuntary heroes and time travels evolved. Combined with their love for rhythmical riffs and extreme musical shifts a new piece of music appeared. Some people have called it an abstract rock opera. The MaXx tells us that the what this project is really about is to amplify the undisguised energy and joy that always has been the core of band.
Advice: Live is grasping the steaming atmosphere in the theatre a hot summer night in Molde, and should be played on a high volume
