This summer I had a new quintet at the Kongsberg Jazz Fertival. It was Markus Stockhausen on trumpet ,Tommy Smith saxophone,Marcin Wasilewski piano and Patrice Heral on drums. A really European quintet.

It was great fun and I really hope to do more concerts with this quintet. Some  music from this concert will be posted here a little later.

At the Molde Festival I played a concert with Thomasz Stanko Quintet  featuring Craig Taiborn piano, Chris Potter sax, and Jim Black drums  .  So nice to play with Thomasz again and those fantastic musicians .

Later in the week I had my own trio with Tommy Smith and Paolo Vinaccia   with Carsten Dahl as guest .The tragedy that hit Norway july 22 had of cause a great impact on the  last days of the festival, But they decided to continue the festival with slight  changes.

I played a concert on Saturday with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra  .It was very  a special feeling to play that afternoon, but music usually can say more than any words and it felt right to do the concert.

The band sounded great .
