A Torino Jazz Festival Production

This musical journey takes its inspiration from Moondog, AKA Louis Thomas Hardin, the visionary American musician, composer, poet and inventor of musical instruments. Hardin was a lover of classical music and jazz, and a street artist considered to be among the forerunners of minimalism, who was admired by composers such as Philip Glass and Steve Reich.
The Moondog Project is centered around Lapsus Lumine, an Italian vocal quartet whose voices become instruments, which, together with a double bass, blend harmony and counterpoint. Working with them are a pair of world-class musicians – Dutch cellist and improvisor Ernst Reijseger, and American drummer Jim Black. They’ve come together for a reinterpretation of Moondog’s classics, in a dazzling performance that explores musical horizons that appear only deceptively unfamiliar.

RYMDEN (BUGGE WESSELTOFT, DAN BERGLUND, MAGNUS ÖSTRÖM) “REFLECTIONS & ODYSSEYS”

Bugge Wesseltoft, piano, Fender Rhodes
Dan Berglund, bass
Magnus Öström, drums

Italian Premiere

Stars from the contemporary European jazz scene join forces in this newly formed super trio. Norwegian pianist and composer Bugge Wesseltoft teams up with Swedish bassist Dan Berglund and drummer Magnus, both formerly of E.S.T., which was led by the late Esbjorn Svensson. This performance takes its name from their 2019 release on Jazzland Recordings, and marks the group’s Italian debut. Rymden is Norwegian for “space” or “universe”, providing an indication of this trio’s esthetic conception. Scandinavian music that goes beyond the Scandinavian sound.
