«It is impressionistic, it is beautiful – it is life!» – Molde International Jazz Festival 2017
Jazz with a capital J is back! Alongside Belgian hot shot pianist Bram De Looze(LABtrio) and a Norwegian rhythm section reminiscent of the seventies jazz heyday, sax player Harald Lassen(prev. Pixel) is conquering the world with his new band LASSEN.
A band that despite short existence already played for a packed Ronnie Scott’s in London and was booked to Norway’s biggest
festivals in 2017 such as Molde Jazz Festival and Oslo Jazz Festival, and received top score in Down Beat Magazine. 2018 is
already looking like a big year with LASSEN representing Norway at JazzAhead in Germany, as well as releasing a new album on Jazzland Recordings
The quartet playes colorful, passionate and catchy jazz, inspired by 70s and life so far, and is a perfect frame for their concerts
that has been described as «liberating», «unpretentiously» and «pure magic».
