Music from Hilmar Jensson's new CD Tyft (released October 2002)

Hilmar Jensson, guitars and electronics
Jim Black, drums, melodica, electronics & virtual instruments
Andrew D'Angelo, alto sax, bass clarinet & electronics

Hilmar is the guitarist in Jim's AlasNoAxis band, and these three musicians have been friends and musical associates since meeting in Boston in 1990 (the early days of Jim, Andrew and Chris Speed's band Human Feel). Come check out this new trio, about which Downtown Music Gallery's Bruce Gallanter says:

“This is Hilmar's debut cd in the US after a few hard-to-find imports ....This is a rambunctious trio that often erupts freely, yet sails through tight charted areas as well....Hilmar plays some eloquent acoustic solo guitar on a few on these pieces. The trio does a fine job of adding eerie electronics to some of the suspenseful pieces, blending electric ghost-like sounds to squeaky reeds, melodica and percussion. Hilmar seems to coax a lot of quirky sounds from his guitars, making it difficult to figure out who is doing what. Like Alasnoaxis, this trio create a variety of moods, each one filled with different soundtrack-like images, from somber to more agitated, fascinating throughout."

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
