“One of the greatest bands in Norway” (AllAboutJazz), Cortex takes cues from 60’s freebop and pushes them into uncompromisingly modern territories. Bassist Ola Høyer and drummer Gard Nilssen propel wildly, while trumpeter Thomas Johannson and saxophonist Kristoffer Berre Alberts mix strident unison lines and high-wire improvisations.
