This is the second edition of my “Sounds of 3” recordings, the first one released, also on Losen Records, August 2016, with Norwegian Frode Alnœs on guitar and the Cuban drummer, Giraldo Piloto. On this second edition I am thrilled and proud with having the Swedish, guitarist extraordinarie, Ulf Wakenius on and the English super star drummer, Gary Husband. These two gentlemen contributed in the greatest way possible with their extreme musical talents, their wonderful spirit, joy and world level performance. I am honoured to have had the chance to make this recording with these 2 super humans. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Ulf & Gary.

We perform 7 original compositions by the members of the trio, one pop classic by Sting and one ballade by guitar maestro, Mike Stern, which covers a wide range of musical dynamics: high voltage jazz-rock, chamber jazz impro, up tempo swing, ballad, blues and odd meter. The music is an array of different jazz styles / genres and explained in the best way possible with this quote from master pianist, Herbie Hancock:
It’s not exclusive, but inclusive, which is the whole spirit of jazz.   

Hope you enjoy, yours truly,
Per BASS VIKING Mathisen.
