An ECM recording artist, Molvaer is a leading exponent of experimental ‘future jazz’, a fusion of jazz and electronica, while Sly and Robbie have legendary status in the music industry having appeared on over 200,000 tracks, working with everyone from Herbie Hancock to Joan Armatrading, Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones.
Joining them on stage is guitarist Eivind Aarset – a frequent Molvaer collaborator – and Finnish electronics maestro Vladislav Delay. Expect visceral grooves that draw from reggae and dub combined with icy electronic washes and contemporary jazz minimalism.
Unusual? Yes, but with musicians of this calibre on the bill this has the potential to be revelatory too.
