Their 10 date tour starts in Sturgeon Bay in October

Cortex heads out on a US tour in October 2017 with ten scheduled performances. This is Cortex fourth tour in the US and will present their latest record ‘Avant- Garde Party Music’ for American audiences.

Cortex is a spirited combo that plays energetic jazz of the finest brand. With over two hundred live-performances and four albums, the quartet positions itself as one of the strongest additions to the European jazz scene. The members are amongst the most sought after young jazz performers in Norway today. They all have marked their position in several other constellations such as Bushman’s Revenge, Puma, PNL Large Unit, Susanne Sundfør, Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, Friends & Neighbors, Honest John, and Moon Relay.

Cortex released their fourth album Live in New York on the Portugese label Clean Feed Records in 2016 and were bestowed with praise by international critics like Jazzwise, All About Jazz, Downbeat Magazie and Chicago Reader.
