A shared interest in Ornette Coleman's music from around 1960 led four students at the jazz line in Trondheim to form a band just over thirty years later. They called the band The Source.
The Source has since the beginning been a cornucopia, some would call it a Pandora's box, of musical outbursts and whims with inspiration from around the world. All created in teams with a huge, colorful panorama of guests. A pure quartet concert with the thirty-year-old band has been a rare event. Now the quartet comes to Kampenjazz.
In the autumn of 2021, they released the album «… but swinging does not bend them down», with a title taken from Robert Frost's poem «Birches». The title also contains the child's dream of climbing the trees and swinging with the birch branches. Like the child's dreams, the music spans a large register, in a span that reflects the quartet's great musical scope and activity over the years.
Hear the birches hiss - from the source!
