Description

Norwegian trumpeter Mathias Eick's expressive playing, which according to the New York Times radiates a "pristine yet penetrating tone", is remarkably well complemented in the company of his gifted supporting players and fellow travelers. Violinist Hakon Aase, one of the outstanding improvisers of his generation, shadows the leader with lines that reflect a profound background in folk as well as jazz.

Drummers Helge Andeas Norbakken and Torstein Lofthus mirror their exchanges, as they interact with purring precision. Near the centre of the action, pianist Andras Ulvo and bass guitarist Audun Erlien ferry ideas between frontline and rhythm section and make statements of their own. On several tracks, the delicate swell of Stian Carstensen's pedal steel guitar adds a dimension of mystery.

'When we leave' was recorded at Oslo's Rainbow Studio in August 2020.

Press:

"Eick plays his delicate melodies with a quiet intensity and sometimes, as on Turning, there are echoes of the late Kenny Wheeler's radiant tone...Sun rising over lake music? Well, it's a rather beautiful lake and a vivid sunrise." - LondonJazzNews
