Five hot, new names added to the line-up

March 22, 2024:

It's been an intense week at the ticket office with the release of five new concerts. Cornelia Nilsson Trio, Post Koma, ØKSE, Supersilent, and Kjetil Mulelid: Agoja are new strong names on the poster.

Cornelia Nilsson Trio

The Swedish drummer Cornelia Nilsson is rightly regarded as one of the most exciting voices on the Scandinavian jazz scene in recent years. From her base in Copenhagen, she has made her mark with sensitive drumming performed with millimeter precision, delightful drive, and an unmistakable love for jazz. For the concert at Herr Nilsen, Nilsson and Franck are joined by Jonas Kullhammar on saxophone, completing the trio. Expect high energy, dynamic rhythm shifts, and a vital presence from a fiery trio led by Cornelia Nilsson!

Jonas Kullhammar – saxophone, Daniel Franck – bass, Cornelia Nilsson - drums

Petter Eldh Post Koma

Koma Saxo, Post Koma, or Petter Eldh Post Koma - a dear child has many names, as the saying goes. This may be somewhat confusing, but the musical core remains the same. The band is Petter Eldh's vision of assembling a saxophone-heavy front with Otis Sandsjö and Jonas Kullhammar, a dynamic rhythm section with Eldh on bass and Christian Lillinger on drums, and Sofia Jernberg's vocals tying it all together. The result is a stunningly good band.

ØKSE emerged when saxophonist Mette Rasmussen and drummer Savannah Harris were asked to put together a new band for the Saalfelden Jazz Festival in 2022. Bassist Petter Eldh and electronic sound improviser Val Jeanty were recruited, and the project has evolved into a tightly knit and ideationally rich collective. A newly sharpened, sharp band that has delivered acclaimed concerts, including at the All Ears festival at MUNCH in 2023.

The quartet brought their spontaneous creativity into the studio, and the debut album will be released during the year. Get ready for a fully charged ØKSE at BLÅ!

"Supersilent at BLÅ" - there's something about that sentence that just fits, two institutions merging together. BLÅ's concrete-clad exterior and delightful industrial character suit Supersilent's elements of noise and minimalism like a glove. In that regard, Supersilent has never really lived up to their band name, where noise is an essential part of their DNA.

Arve Henriksen – trumpet, Helge Sten – electronics, Ståle Storløkken – keyboards

With the new album "Agoja," Mulelid has assembled an adventurous ensemble of top-notch musicians. You can see the premiere of the project at the Oslo Jazz Festival!
