Friday Oct 6: Cortex (Norway), Chatoyant
It must be almost autumn, because our late summer series of outstanding Norwegian improvisors is coming to end. In this final installemnt, we present some of the hottest next generation Nordic musicians with the return of Cortex. The group plays in a style very reminiscent of Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry, with a touch of funk-soul jazz and blistering Fire Music to boot! Closing the show is another kind of Fure Music- in the form of Detroit’s sonic portal-crossing adventurers, Chatoyant.
