According to critic Whitney Balliett, jazz is “the sound of surprise”. Most certainly, the Norwegian duo Endresen-Westerhus confirms this postulate. They’ve been playing and making records together for nearly a decade, and it shows. Their performances revolve around a seemingly mutual telepathic exchange. Each and every one of their concerts delves into diverse explorations, where freedom of movement is essential, and abstract narrations create soundscapes that defy genre. They won the 2012 Norwegian Grammy for Best Jazz Recording.
