Genre: Jazz, World | Label: ECM

Hard on the heels of his critically-lauded - & distortion-saturated - collaboration with rock players in Lumen Drones comes the next fine album from Norway's Hardanger fiddle master. His new b& makes a quieter but richly creative musical proposal. All the musicians are well-known in diverse contexts. Mats Eilertsen's elegant bass has been heard on ECM recordings with Tord Gustavsen, Trygve Seim, Wolfert Brederode & Jacob Young. Håkon Stene is a Norwegian contemporary classical percussionist of distinction. Harmonium player Sigbjørn Apel& collaborated with Økl& previously on Lysøen - Hommage à Ole Bul.
& new music saxophonist Rolf-Erik Nylstrøm has played extensively with Frode Haltli in the trio ‘Poing'. On Kjølvatn most of the music is from Økl&'s pen but each b& member contributes his unique perspective to the arrangements. As Nils says: "Over the years I have moved between a wide range of genres from classical violin to Balkan folk, rock, jazz, free improvisation & Norwegian folk music. I've always composed my own material inspired by all these expressions. In early baroque music - another musical style I let myself be inspired by - it was common to have sketches as the basis for making new music. In this b& we work with methods influenced by this." Kjølvatn was recorded at the Østre Toten stone church outside Lena, in Norway's Oppl& county. The church has long been noted for its excellent acoustics, also factored into the music-making here.
