Mandal Jazz Club and Buen Kulturhus presents: Steinar Raknes - STILLHOUSE w / Unni Wilhelmsen Releasing Tour "Chasing The Real Things"
Chasing The Real Things is Raknes' third album with the project STILLHOUSE, where Raknes sings and plays double bass.
The bassist writes songs within the American genre, and both cover songs and their own songs are carried by the genuine character of Raknes double bass games and vocals.
On the record, the bassist brings with him several guests, and most prominently is the mouth player Mickey Raphael from Nashville, who plays among others in Willie Nelson band.
In addition, a star team of Norwegian artists - Unni Wilhelmsen, Ane Brun and Solveig Slettahjell - vocals, Ola Kvernberg - violin, Kjetil Møster-sax, Andreas Utnem - wooden organ and Per Oddvar Johansen - sag - to make the album become a musical gem with many palettes.
On the release tour, the bassist is on the road with Unni Wilhelmsen, and together they have put together a beautiful and strong repertoire. Unni and Steinar both have very expressive voices, and the contrast between the two makes them complement each other in a very special way.
Raknes and Wilhelmsen have collaborated before, in connection with Raknes' project STILLHOUSE - where he sings and plays double bass. Double bass is the only instrument on stage. But Raknes plays the instrument as an orchestra on himself. He has a style of play where he uses finger game techniques that make the instrument work both as a guitar and a bass. In addition, he uses electric effects, stomp box, and looping of both bass and voices. This is a concert that varies between the close, intimate and acoustic, - to large, full rock sound effects. The repertoire is the main song songs written by Raknes, from his three releases in the STILLHOUSE series, with the main emphasis on the latest album Chasing The Real Things. In addition, they feature captivating and distinctive cover versions of artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, and Depeche Mode.
