Saxophonist Kjetil Møster fronts a dream-team of Norwegian musicians: Ståle Storløkken (Supersilent), Nikolai Eilertsen (Elephant 9, Big Bang) and Kenneth Kapstad (Motorpsycho). Edvard Lygre Møster is a powerful live album recorded at the Victoria in Oslo in December 2011. Kjetil Møster's tenor sax playing in bands such as Ultralyd, Zaussi Five and The Core, and in collaboration with Chick Corea and the Trondheim Jazzorkester, has placed him firmly on the map. He was voted "International Young Jazz Talent" in 2006 by the organizations IJFO and IAJE. The band Møster was formed when he was invited to the Kongsberg Jazzfestival in 2010, and marked Kjetil's return to jazz after extensive tours of several years' duration with the electro-rock band Datarock. The group's musical idiom is energetic, rock-inspired and dark, and according to Kjetil his goal with the band is to place the artistic style and intensity of his hero John Coltrane in a modern context. It is not without reason that the band Møster's first album is a live recording. Kjetil Møster was given free rein when putting his new band together, and all the musicians he chose have a personal relationship with much of the music of the 1960s and '70s, and are trying to convey these traditions into a new landscape. Edvard Lygre Møster is such a personal album for Kjetil that he chose to name it after his first-born son. "The album was conceived at almost exactly the same time as my own child, Edvard Lygre Møster. But the album has gone through a slightly longer gestation period. For me, this album is a personal expression of the music I have listened to and what I have been thinking about since I was a child."
