In the spring of 2018 we had jazzcafe in Allmenningen, for the first time in a long time. Now we are recreating the success!
Kurt Sagen Jazz Quartet had their first concert in February 2017. This was performed at Thon Hotel in Ålesund with direction from the Jazzsircle. The concert became greatly successful, and the jazzcafe was filled with people this Saturday.
This is a jazzband who has good old swingjazz and latinjazz on their repertoar. The melodies are chosen so that people who have lived a while will feel at home. The only thing that is new is their sound and the way the band arrange their songs. As many other bands, Kurt Sagen Jazz Quartet have rolemodels where they collect inspiration and ideas from. Here one can mention the world known accordionist "Art Van Damme" and our local hero "Rangwald Weddegjerde", who sadly passed away too early. Kurt Sagen Jazz Quartet have the same instrumentcrew like Weddegjerdes quartet on the 80's. Sagen have tried to recreate some of the sounds to both Weddegjerde and Art Van Damme with this quartet.
Guitarist Kurt Sagen have chosen from top of the shelves in the local jazz environment when he got Einar Longva on accordion, Svein Hunnes on contrabass and Carlos Alberici on drums.
