Sometimes we’re so lucky we can present a really great act at a small, intimate venue. And this year we can honestly claim to be doing just that when the quartet consisting of Bill Evans, Ulf Wakenius, Per Mathisen and Keith Carlock takes to the stage at Herr Nilsen.
The American saxophonist Bill Evans and the young Swedish guitarist Ulf Wakenius have invited bassist Per Mathisen and none other than Keith Carlock on drums to join them.
This is a band whose members have played with everyone from Miles Davis (Evans) and Pat Metheny (Wakenius) to Mike Stern (Mathisen), Toto, John Mayer and Steely Dan (Carlock).
These virtuoso musicians will be offering us some world-class collective playing. Their music, which has been composed mainly by Evans and Wakenius, draws upon their long international careers and is a marvellous blend of jazz, jazz rock, funk, fusion, rock and a lot more.
