For each album Hedvig Mollestad Trio launches, the critics are trying to place them in a fitting genre, Jazz or Rock? Stonerswing? Or maybe Doomjazz? Classic Rock is probably the closest one: Jazz Sabbath. The bands electric mic of references goes from Black Sabbath and Jimi Hendrix to John Coltrane, contemporary jazz and metal. Spellbinding and compromiseless music that should be experienced on stage.
The band started in 2009 after Mollestad became "the years youngest jazz talent" under Moldejazz, and the trio got signed to Rune Grammofon the following year. After four stuidoalbums and one double live record, the fifth record "Smells Funny" cam the autumn of 2018. The trio have been to the studio once more, and new record is on its way by the beginning on next year, hopefully, it is ready in fysical form until the concert at Parken.
No matter if your heart lays close to the jazz and the free, or if you prefer the heavy beat and the pumping bass, the band have become a live-favourite in both camps. The trio have toured on dirty small places around the world, as well as on the big concert arenas and jazz festivals. The trio have warmed up for John McLaughlin on London Jazzfestival and played on well known festivals such as, Roadburn, SXSW, Vancouver Jazzfestival, Ottawa Jazzfestival, Berlin Jazz Fest and Øyafestivalen, just to mention some.
