Over nearly two decades, quartet Come Shine has solidified their status as the epitome of Norwegian standard jazz interpretation, both artistically and in terms of critical and public appeal. The band’s live performances and studio albums have been highly praised around the world and confirm their continuous success faced with the most unforgiving of expectations –the reality of performing standards- and are distinguished by the ability to enact exactly what standard songs plead for; to be born again.
The quartet’s confident, skilled, visionary and aesthetic playing provides a platform from which the tunes grow into new entities – freed from the constraints of past performances and interpretations.
Come Shine’s fourth album ‘Red and Gold’, featuring a live recording of their applauded, nationally televised concert at the Norwegian Opera in Oslo saw its domestic release last spring to critical acclaim.
Line up: Live Maria Roggen – vocals, Erlend Skomsvoll – piano, Sondre Meisfjord- bass, Håkon Mjåset Johansen – drums
