04/2017

"DIDRIK INGVALDSEN [tpt], who I know of mainly through Frode Gjerstad’s Circulation Totale Orchestra from the ’90s, takes some of the Gjerstad irregular energy and places it in a mostly metered environment. Here he and his orchestra have produced THE EXPANDING CIRCLE [Hevhelia HV 0124-2-331]. Make no mistake this is post bop orchestration, some of which is exciting in of itself. But what really sells this music is the individual solos which cut across the orchestra’s originals, on this undated [2016?] CD. 11 originals [61:56] make up the music played by his Czech/Norwegian octet in which Marcel Bárta [ts/clt] is outstanding. Liner notes, dates and identified soloist would have been appreciated. Still, full dynamic listening."

from CADENCE MAGAZINE 4/17 (US)

NOCZ

Didrik Ingvaldsen - trumpet
Radim Hanousek - saxophone
Marian Friedl - double bass
Dag Magnus Narvesen - drums

special guest Iva Bittová - violin, vocals

Norwegian-Czech free jazz quartet NOCZ is led by Norwegian trumpeter and composer Didrik Ingvaldsen, who is active simultaneously on the experimental jazz scenes in Norway, Berlin and New York. Norwegian drummer Dag Magnus Narvesen implements his current activities mainly in Berlin. The Czech musicians Radim Hanousek and Marian Friedl work together in a number of Czech jazz formations, moreover Hanousek is seriously engaged in contemporary music and Friedl in Moravian folk music.

The music of NOCZ has a unique flavor based on the work of trumpeter Didrik Ingvaldsen, who combines modern trends of experimental jazz with classic free jazz approaches and a traditional lineup: trumpet, saxophone, double bass, and drums. Their music is characterized by lot of energy, distinctive dynamic breaks, heavily orchestrated passages alternating with freer ones, expressive melodies, emphasis on rhythm in the compositions, and collective improvisation.

Their common album NOCZ & Iva Bittová brings a unique combination of the Czech-Norwegian band that draws influences from free jazz, noise and ambient music with the distinctive Czech female vocalist, while their common distinguishing feature is an easy overcoming the genre barriers, sovereign expression in the field of improvised music and free vocalize combined with a significantly dense brass section and dynamic rhythm.

“An undoubtedly successful and progressive jazz album, rarely heard in our homeland!” (Jan Hocek - JazzPort)
“The compositions mix muscular, rhythmic free jazz with sonic experimental sonic elements, spiced with Balkan and Klezmer overtones, alternating between tight, orchestrated parts and fiery free improvisations.” (Eyal Hareuveni - All About Jazz)

Singer and violinist Iva Bittová is one of the few artists from the Czech Republic to enjoy an international career. Her irresistible charm, original use of voice, and fondness of melodies that sit on the border of avant-garde and playground nursery rhymes won her devoted fans around the world, although the core of her audience resides in Eastern Europe. (AllMusic.com)





Osobitý charakter hudbě pět let fungující norsko-české free jazzové formace NOCZ udává interpretace skladeb norského trumpetisty Didrika Ingvaldsena, které kombinují současné trendy v experimentálním jazzu s klasickými free jazzovými postupy a tradičním obsazením kapely ve složení trubka, saxofon, kontrabas a bicí. Typická je velmi energická hra s výraznými dynamickými zlomy, kombinace prokomponovaných pasáží s volnými plochami, výrazná melodika, významná práce s rytmem v kompoziční práci i kolektivní improvizace.





Didrik Ingvaldsen Orchestra

Didrik Ingvaldsen - leader, arranger, trumpet player
Marcel Bárta, Michal Wróblewski, Radim Hanousek - saxophones, clarinets
Jaroslav Šťastný - piano
Marian Friedl - double bass
Dag Magnus Narvesen, Tomáš Hobzek - percussion

special guest Elisabeth Nygård - vocal

The leader of this Norwegian‐Czech band is trumpet player and composer Didrik Ingvaldsen who is currently active also on major jazz experimental scenes in Norway, Berlin, and New York. Together with Norwegian drummer Dag Magnus Narvesen (currently active mainly in Berlin and – apart from his own projects – cooperating with a star of jazz avant‐garde Alexander von Schlippenbach), Radim Hanousek, and Marian Friedl (Hanousek focuses on contemporary music – Dust in the Groove, Dunami Ensemble, apart from other jazz bands he runs with Friedl, while Friedl deals in Moravian folklore – Jitka Šuraňská, Ruky na dudy), they have been members of NOCZ quartet for 5 years. They recorded their last album with respected performer Iva Bittová (NOCZ & Iva Bittová, Hevhetia 2014). The album was very positively reviewed all over Europe. In Didrik Ingvaldsen Orchestra the quartet is joined by other musicians experienced in experimental open jazz.

Piano player Jaroslav Šťastný belongs among unconventional and globally respected composers, and he is also a prolific writer and artist. As an improviser he is a member of Prague Improvising Orchestra, Divergent Connections Orchestra, and a free‐jazz band Next Phase.

Marcel Bárta is a very active and universal saxophone player who for years has been involved in the most interesting things happening on the Czech jazz scene (Vertigo Quintet, Muff, DoMa Ensemble, Face of The Bass, NUO, Bucinatores Orchestra, Pigeon Saxophone Quartet etc.).
Michal Wróblewski has been studying at Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo while being a part of local avant‐garde jazz scene (KIAP, Streams of Eyebeams). Also, he is in charge of his own projects E Converso and SWOMP.

Apart from his own quartet with Marcel Bárta being one of the members, Points band and a number of other projects, Tomáš Hobzek cooperates with David Dorůžka, Ondřej Pivec, and Libor Šmoldas.

Elisabeth regularly records and performs throughout Europe and Scandinavia with the highly acclaimed ensembles, ‘MooV’, lead by composer Colin Riley, ‘Fringe Magnetic’, led by the critically acclaimed trumpeter Rory Simmons which features some of the UK’s most important Jazz musicians and the Anglo/Norwegian trio Eyes of a Blue Dog, who recently received outstanding reviews in the European press for their second album ”Hamartia“. In addition, she has collaborated with The British sensation Jaime Cullum, Fyfe Dangerfield and Grasscut and with the Norwegian leading contemporary bands, Kitchen Orchestra and Extended Corner. Elisabeth is highly sought after as a composer/lyricist and is frequently commissioned as well as composing for her own ensembles.

The project performs its own jazz version of Sinfonietta by Janáček and its program from the new album Expanding Circle.





Lídrem této norsko‐české formace je trumpetista a skladatel Didrik Ingvaldsen, působící současně na významných jazzových experimentálních scénách v Norsku, Berlíně a New Yorku. Spolu s norským bubeníkem Dagem Magnusem Narvesenem (ten realizuje své současné aktivity převážně v Berlíně a kromě svých autorských projektů spolupracuje s hvězdou jazzové avantgardy Alexanderem Von Schlippenbachem), Radimem Hanouskem a Marianem Friedlem (kromě dalších společných jazzových formací s Friedlem se Hanousek věnuje soudobé hudbě – Dust in the Groove, Dunami Ensemble – a Friedl moravskému folklóru – Jitka Šuraňská, Ruky na dudy) tvoří již 5 let kvarteto NOCZ. Poslední album natočilo kvarteto NOCZ se světově respektovanou performerkou Ivou Bittovou (NOCZ & Iva Bittová, Hevhetia 2014). Album sklidilo velice příznivé recenze po celé Evropě. V Didrik Ingvaldsen Orchestra je kvarteto rozšířeno o další zkušené hráče na poli experimentálního otevřeného jazzu.

Pianista Jaroslav Šťastný patří k nekonvenčním a světově respektovaným skladatelům, rozsáhlá je i jeho činnost literární a výtvarná. Jako improvizátor je členem Prague Improvising Orchestra, Divergent Connections Orchestra a freejazzové formace Next Phase.

Marcel Bárta je velice aktivní a všestranný saxofonista, již řadu let je součástí toho nejzajímavějšího, co se v českém jazzu děje (Vertigo Quintet, Muff, DoMa Ensemble, Face of The Bass, NUO, Bucinatores Orchestra, Pigeon Saxophone Quartet a další).

Michal Wróblewski studuje druhým rokem na Norwegian Academy of Music v Oslu, je součástí tamní avantgardní jazzové scény (KIAP, Streams of Eyebeams), kromě toho vede vlastní projekty E Converso a SWOMP.

Tomáš Hobzek kromě vlastního kvarteta, jehož členem je i Marcel Bárta, kapely Points a řady dalších projektů spolupracuje s Davidem Dorůžkou, Ondřejem Pivcem a Liborem Šmoldasem.

Elisabeth pravidelně vystupuje a nahrává po celé Evropě a Skandinávii s velmi uznávanými soubory, např. MooV, který vede skladatel Colin Riley, Fringe Magnetic, který vede respektovaný trumpetista Rory Simmons a ve kterém vystupují přední britští jazzoví hudebníci, a anglicko‐norské trio Eyes of a Blue Dog, kterému se v poslední době dostalo mimořádně příznivých recenzí v evropském tisku za druhé album Hamartia. Dále spolupracuje s britskou senzací Jamie Cullumem, Fyfe Dangerfieldem, skupinou Grasscut a s předními současnými norskými hudebními skupinami jako Kitchen Orchestra a Extended Corner. Elisabeth je velmi vyhledávaná i jako skladatelka hudby a autorka textů.


Projekt vystupuje s vlastní jazzovou verzí Janáčkovy Sinfonietty a programem z nového alba Expanding Circle.
