Description

Intimate chamber jazz from the Norwegian jazz trio Maridalen, who take their name from the scenic valley that lies just north of Oslo city centre. The trio's self-title debut album in 2021, has received rave reviews among many other plaudits, was listed on the lists "Best Norwegian of the Year" in Aftenposten, and "Jazz albums of the Year" in MOJO Magazine. 'Bortenfor' is their second album on Jazzland Recordings.

Like its predecessor, this album is also recorded in the old wooden church in Maridalen, but this time the trio also moves a little beyond the valley - down to night-lit streets and old apartment buildings. With the warm and acoustic sound of double bass, trumpet and woodwind, the trio creates their own musical space that captures different moods and spins small stories.

Through these moments, the listener is invited to new adventures; from a city gateway, old and forgotten places are explored: through pictures from a movie, to a ride on a moon bike in dreamland.

The soundscape is intimate, transparent, and provides great opportunity and plenty of space for the three musicians to play. The trio also rounds out the sound with contributions from piano, an old radio and kitchen utensils, with the addition of pedal steel guitarist Emil Brattested on two songs.
