Bendik BaksaasSeine Sviv ... CD
OK World (Norway), 2018. New Copy ... $16.99
An airy, icy combination of voice and instrumentation – used in a way that takes us back to some of the coolest Norwegian experiments of this type from years back – like some of the sparer work of Karin Krog, or unusual vocal projects on the Jazzland label! Bendik Baksaas leads the group on keyboards and flute, but the record takes maybe even more power from the voice of Helga Myhr, who sometimes plays a Hardanger fiddle, and sometimes gets this very compelling assist from two other female singers! The rest of the instrumentation is just a bit of trumpet from Kristoffer Eikrem – and the whole thing's presented in this spacey, open way that reminds us of some of Bugge Wesseltoft's work in the studio. An unusual mix of older Norwegian modes, experimental jazz, and maybe a hint of 4AD and ECM atmospherics – with titles that include "Kontraponkt", "Lova Lova Line", "Den Lyse Dag", and "Borte Er De Sommerdage".
