The Core is, quite simply, one of Norway’s most energetic jazz bands, out to rehabilitate any notions of Norwegian jazz as somehow austere and hymnal. The band’s music is rooted in acoustic modal jazz from the 60s, combined with more contemporary grooves rooted in funk and rock. The music is generous and lets the listener be part of a high-energy journey. The music is generous enough to bring the listener into their high-energy journey; live performances showcase the band’s energy, stamina and grit of a kind that is too often absent from today’s jazz.
