Steinar Raknes brought some warmer and deeper tunes to our Jazzkaar sessions. He is one of the most extraordinary double bass players and song creators of today’s Norway, who enchants with a bold and electrifying playing style. The original sound and style of the charismatic musician has gathered inspiration from pop, rock, blues, folk, and country music. In his enthralling solo performance, where song and double bass meet, Raknes takes the listener to the atmosphere of cowboy films – to the borders of Americana and jazz, to the hot prairie.
He also talked a bit about his travels and creations with Stuart Garlick.
