Bugge Wesseltofts «New Conception of Jazz» resurfaces in 2016 with a new generation of jazz musicians.
Not many Norwegian musicians can say they left their mark on the European jazz scene in the 1990s and 2000s, but Bugge Wesseltoft surely did with his popular project «New Conception of Jazz». Together with key musicians such as Erik Truffaz French and Nils Petter Molvær he mixed electronic elements with jazz. New Conception of Jazz has as a result become a concept in itself within the electronic jazz scene.
After 400 concerts worldwide and recordings by New Conception of Jazz (1996) and Moving (2001), the band took a break in 2006. Ten years after Bugge Wesseltoft breathes new life into the project again – this time with a whole new generation of young musicians.
The audience can expect to hear both new and old material when New Conception of Jazz enters the stage at Tromsø Jazzfestival. One thing is for certain; it’s danceable, groovy and electric!
The doors open at 6PM. Seated tickets. No age limit.
Price: 350 NOK/300 NOK (adult/student, senior)
