Eirik Hegdal: Musical Balloon
Musical Balloon was the “Tingningsverket” (festival commission) at Vossa Jazz in 2018, and it was met with enthusiastic responses from both audience and critics.
The jazz magazine “Downbeat” wrote:
«… one of the best commissions of recent vintage». «… a fascinating suite in a micro-big band context, laced with theatricality, moments of swinging bravura and an overall narrative ebb-and-flow».
Hegdal’s music is refreshing and sparky, with complex rhythms, tight brass, surprising melodies and unifying musical motives. A big band in micro-format lets the energy fly – allow yourself to be lifted up by Hegdal’s balloon!
