Nordic Showcase: General Post Office

General Post O ice plays bluesy free-jazz. This is stronglyenergetic music, much inspired by the pioneers of free-jazz such as Ornette Coleman and Cecil Taylor, but also the old blues-legends like Robert Johnson and Howlin Wolf. Simple melodic ideas rapidly changes into gutsy and high-powered improvisations. The band met at the Grieg Academy in Bergen and they’re going to record an album this autumn.
