Ole Morten Vågan, Trondheim Jazz Orchestra

Plastic Wave




Plastic Wave comes as the sequel to 2018’s celebrated “Happy Endlings”, where Ole Morten Vågan, one of the most sought-after bass players in Norway, collaborated with the unpredictable and creative Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, comprised of a sort of “who’s who” in Norwegian jazz. Where “Happy Endlings” took the listener on a 72-minute-long ride on the edge of their seat through a myriad of innovation, chock, and surprises, “Plastic Wave” sees TJO & Vågan take their mischievous end time antics from the previous album to the next phase, in some sorts a musical excavation of the next evolutionary step – and the sequel is no less than 12 minutes longer.

Titles such as Food Chain Reaction and Critical Mass Distraction are given extra momentum by Flu Hartberg ?s cover art, again a trusty companion for the music. Having been recorded halfway through 2020, the music on “Plastic Wave” plays well against this unprecedented backdrop, the music on “Plastic Wave” plays well against this unprecedented backdrop, and elements like a sudden cameo by poet Frode Grytten places the music even further into the context of our time.
