Album Description

MORILD is a Norwegian duo in which Dag Einar Eilertsen (jazz alto-trombone) and Marius Noss Gundersen (classical guitar) combine two musical worlds in an expression inspired by Nordic jazz traditions.   With its unique combination of instruments the duo now present their new project and album, "Nordic Landscape": original compositions characterised by long melodic lines, timbres, improvisations and Nordic atmospheres. Morild can be placed in a Nordic / Jazz / ECM-inspired landscape with their new album "Nordic landscapes".   Dag Einar does something very few have done before him, playing jazz on alto- trombone. The instrument had its peak between the 16th and 18th centuries in classical music. The bell is approximately the same size as a flugelhorn, so the mutes and sordins for flugelhorn match the alto-trombone, giving multiple opportunities for experimentation and variation. We know of no previous jazz recordings with alto-trombone, and the instrument blends exceptionally well with the nylon stringed guitar. Eilertsen and Gundersen have played together for a number of years and have received excellent feedback on their musicianship and relaxed stage appearances. To experience Morild live has been said to be a unique musical journey through clear open sound, beautiful melodies and enjoyable dialog with the listeners.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
