Jaga Jazzist
Those unlucky enough to miss Jaga Jazzist in performance with the UK's Britten Sinfonia in either London, at The Barbican, last summer or Oslo, at Rockefeller, last fall—the final show of Conexions,a series curated by Fiona Talkington, host of the terrific BBC Radio 3 show Late Junction, amongst many other things, and reviewed at All About Jazz here—will be happy to hear that the progressive Norwegian group will be releasing the Oslo show on May 6, 2013 as Jaga Jazzist Live With the Britten Sinfonia.

There is one new composition ("Prungen"), written specifically for the occasion, as well as material from The Stix, What We Must and the group's last studio release, 2010's One-Armed Bandit, also reviewed at All About Jazz.

The complete track listing: One-Armed Bandit; Kitty Wu; Prungen; Bananfluer Overalt; For All You Happy People; Toccata; Music! Dance! Drama!; Oslo Skyline.

“Mathias [Eick]'s trumpet solo on 'Bananfluer Overalt' is probably my favorite moment on the album," says the group's writer and creative driving force Lars Horntveth. “He really shines here and has the space and time to improvise in a way he hasn't been able to do before with Jaga alone."

Jaga Jazzist Live With the Britten Sinfonia will be released on Ninja Tune.
