Jazz intro: Stenøien/Hjemmen/Heide Bø
It's time to vote for the year's young jazz musicians 2022!
The three musicians in Stenøien/Hjemmen/Heide Bø met in Trondheim when they were studying at the jazz line at NTNU. The band was formed as a result of a shared love of the modern, explosive jazz scene in New York. They play self-composed music inspired by musicians such as Immanuel Wilkins, Joel Ross, Harish Raghavan, Marcus Gilmore, Matt Brewer, John Coltrane and Lewis Wright, where the American jazz tradition stands strong. The core of the music lays the groundwork for tight interaction, melodic improvisations and a strong groove.
Amund Stenøien (Trondheim) – vibraphone, Steinar Heide Bø (Trondheim) – drums and Anders Waltersdorph Hjemmen (Ski, Nordre Follo) – double bass
