Friends & Neighbors

Record release and cookin' improvisation

Strong melodies, playfulness and dynamics are words that can describe Friends & Neighbors' outgoing playing style. The music ranges from melodious ballads to hard-swinging free-bop and powerful free-jazz blasts, with an interplay that has been allowed to grow together and develop for over 16 years.

At Jazzfest they celebrate record number six - their new release Circles.

The quintet has a distinctive sound that reflects a wide range of jazz history, with references such as Ornette Coleman, Pharoah Sanders and Eric Dolphy. Energetic, catchy and melodic free jazz at its best!

André Roligheten – saxophones/clarinets/flute
Thomas Johansson – trumpet
Oscar Grönberg - piano
Jon Rune Strøm – double bass
Tollef Østvang – drums
