Artist Website

 

“Full of stark beauty, whispered threats and aural assaults, leavened by moments of exaltation.”—Sydney Morning Herald

Since its inception in 2000, the Scandinavian ensemble Atomic has garnered widespread acclaim for creating a completely unique and identifiable sound that seamlessly merges the American and European  jazz traditions. They are equally indebted to the music of Archie Shepp and Derek Bailey, and use these sensibilities as sources of inspiration — not restrictions on their creativity. The compositions, by Håvard Wiik and Fredrik Ljungkvist, are typical Atomic: thoughtfully constructed melodies alternate with explosive passages by way of fast, unexpected changes.

With Fredrik Ljungkvist reeds, Magnus Broo trumpet, Håvard Wiik piano, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten bass, and Hans Hulbækmo drums.
