American guitar legend with Norwegian supergroup!
Mike Stern has been voted by Down Beat as one of the best jazz guitarists of all time and has lead time from the likes of Blood, Sweat & Tears, Billy Cobham and not least Miles Davis. Stern has been nominated for the US Grammy Awards 6 times and in 2012 was awarded a so-called "Certified Legend Award" by Guitar Player.
In this project, Stern meets the cream of Norwegian jazz and fusion musicians:
Jan Gunnar Hoff, keys
Audun Kleive, drums
Per Mathisen, bass
Thor-Ivar Lund, sound.
The Norwegian contingent in the band has "creds" from projects with people like Alex Acuna, Gary Husband, Ulf Wakenius, Bill Bruford, Terje Rypdal, Pat Metheny, Maria Joao, Denada.
In March 2018, Mike Stern & Jan Gunnar Hoff Group made another tour in Norway, here from the Oslo Review:
The album of the Jan Gunnar Hoff Group feat. Mike Stern released in November 2018 on Losen Records.
Downbeat: "Hoff's album with Stern's formidable help, organically crosses over eras and transatlantic aesthetics, bridging a division into fusion".
