BLISS is a Trondheim-based band that plays energetic contemporary jazz. The music is rhythmically pulsating with textural and melodic flair, and is based on original compositions. The music has a nice balance of composed and improvised, beautiful and violent, structured and playful, small and large. Their music draws inspiration from bands and musicians such as Atomic, Masqualero, Kenny Wheeler and Jan Garbarek.
The band has during the brief time they’ve existed played at a number of festivals and stages around Norway, and this summer they’ll will record their debut album.
Bliss participated in the Oslo Jazz Festival's talent development program Nordic Showcase in 2020, and the festival looks forward to presenting the band again, now as part of the main program.
