Fiona's Comments

By non-idiomatic sounds, they mean barnyard animals illuminating emotional resistance to the big hammer in the sky. Feel their pain if you need to.

About the Album

The drums/sax duo, Heaven, is the collaboration between danish sax player Henrik Pultz Melbye and Norwegian drummer Ole Mofjell, performing fast, highly energetic, old and new school free jazz. Inspired by European free improvisation, 60's New York loft avantgarde and ethiopian jazz, this duo is not afraid of combining strong rhythmic and melodic ideas, with stretches of more noisey non-idiomatic sounds. With a huge amount of personality and courage to not do the same thing twice, these two musicians are here to prove that it is not impossible to walk in the footsteps of the legendary drum/sax duos which have come before. Norwegian drummer, Ole Mofjell is known for his fast paced, energetic drum playing. He has been heard playing with musicians including Laura Toxværd, Thurston Moore and Tobias Delius. Danish saxplayer Henrik Pultz Melbye has been touring all over Europe with the avantgarde-rock band SVIN. He has also released records with his award nominated trio and as a solo saxophone act. He’s an agile and curious saxophone player constantly exploring new ways to play the saxophone. Earth is the last song of their debut album IAPOE out on Clean Feed Records

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
