12 Points Plus - Vossa Jazz festival, Norway
Vossa Jazz Festival
Fraktgodsen (Elifantree + Trio VD),
Park Hotel Vossevangen (Kaja Draksler)
Three great 12 Points Plus artists perform at the Vossa Jazz festival in Norway.
Finnish trio Elifantree make liberated music that easily defies catagorisation, with feet planted defiantly in both the jazz and rock camps.
Slovenian pianist Kaja Draksler's lyrical compositions shaded with colours of the Eastern Med played by a quintet of Amsterdam based players with an empathic on stage rapport.
Trio VD are confrontational, uninhibited and clever, their use of volatile materials is invigorating and their demonic humour is catching
