Elephant9 w/ Reine Fiske
Label: Rune Grammofon
Released in: Norway
"It's not often a jazz band takes the big step from the club scene to a 1300-capacity rock venue like Oslo's Rockefeller. But then again, Elephant9 is not your ordinary jazz band. Often cited as Norway's best live band -- surely quite rare for an instrumental band -- they are equally popular in jazz and rock circles.
On this, their fourth studio album, Elephant9 once again join forces with Reine Fiske, the Swedish guitarist from Dungen and The Amazing, for an epic slice of mindblowing modern rock 'n' jazz prog psychedelia. Silver Mountain is their finest album so far, a work on which all the parts fall into place. The core trio is still Stale Storlokken, Nikolai Heangsle Eilertsen, and Torstein Lofthus, three of Norway's finest musicians. Guest Reine Fiske brings another dimension to the band and is now so integrated that he might as well be considered a permanent member.
Silver Mountain contains five tracks between 10 and 22 minutes; four originals, plus the most spaced-out version of "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" you're likely to encounter."-Rune GrammofonAlso available on vinyl LP.
