The North: The Music of Kenny Wheeler feat. Norma Winstone

The band The North has a separate Wheeler project where they have brought in vocalist Norma Winston.   

Concert start: 1730 Single ticket price: NOK 390

Kenny Wheeler was an outstanding musician, both on trumpet and flugelhorn. He was also an excellent composer. Many jazz musicians play the compositions of Wheeler, and the band The north have a separate Wheeler project where they have brought the vocalist along Norma Winstone, who for many years collaborated with precisely Kenny Wheeler.   

Norma Winston is one of jazz's most remarkable vocalists and holds a very special position in English jazz. She had a long-standing collaboration with Kenny Wheeler, both in Wheeler's own bands and in the trio Azimuth. Her versatility is striking. She can breathe life into the simplest of songs, and she can improvise with the agility and flow of an instrumentalist.

Men The north houses several international celebrities. Both Nikki Iles og Percy Pursglove has for a number of years been central to the English jazz and improvisation scene. Mike Murley is an award-winning saxophonist from Canada. Kompet is Scandinavian: Johnny Åman is one of Sweden's busiest bassists, and the Danish drummer Anders Mogensen has shown on several previous visits to Kongsberg that he knows his stuff.
