Atomic

Atomic comes this close to being a Scandinavian free jazz supergroup. It allies the top line of Fire House and the Fredrik Noren Band (trumpeter Magnus Broo and saxophonist Fredrik Ljungkvist) and the rhythm section from Element (pianist Havard Wiik), bassist Ingebrigt Haker Flaten, and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love. Formed in reaction to the ECM-style of modern jazz that came to equal “Scandinavian jazz” in the minds of music fans worldwide, the group proposes a modernized take on power jazz, drawing from American Fire Music (Archie Shepp, Albert Ayler, Ornette Coleman) and '60s European free improv (Peter Brötzmann's Machine Gun)
