  • Description

    Norwegian pianist Eivind Austad alongside the renowned New Orleans rhythm section of James Singelton (bass) and Johnny Vidachovic (drums), who first played together live at The Jazz Playhouse with this session recorded in 2018.

    ‘That Feeling’ is an album “about� New Orleans in the sense that the music explores a feeling of New Orleans. The tracks - some of Austad’s own compositions, some classics - are templates for this exploration. The compositions are relatively simple, meaning that the musicians can focus on co-creating a feeling grounded in New Orleans traditions. There are strong elements of blues and gospel in the compositions - and in the improvised realizations of the compositions - thus acknowledging a long history of musical genres. At the same time, these elements are treated not as dimensions in a sonic museum, but as explorations of the traditions in a contemporary moment.


    “The piece that I felt really shows how well this trio gels is ‘Esplanade Drive’...the bass sets up a groove, with shuffling drums and Austad plays a right hand melody...on this track the piece emphasises the unity of this trio - with subtle shifts in mood, start-stops within a bar, and the rhythm section finding more space to let loose, encouraging Austad to build his sparse, elegant solos.� - Chris Baber, Jazz Views
