Approaching the free side of 60s postbop in the Ornette Coleman vein, the Cortex quartet of Thomas Johansson (trumpet), Kristoffer Alberts (sax), Ola Hoyer (double bass) and Gard Nilssen (drums) are captured for a dynamic and captivating set at IBeam in Brooklyn in 2015.

Cortex (Johansson / Alberts / Hoyer / Nilssen): Live in New York (Clean Feed)

Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    


"On Cortex second release with Clean Feed Records you'll find them again in the best context possible: in concert. Considering that the band works in the tradition pioneered by Ornette Coleman, this concert recording has a special significance, because it took place in the world capital of jazz, New York. The approach may be somewhat European, but the music registered here seemed (and seems) at home.

Critics wrote at the occasion that Cortex is walking the same routes where we can find John Zorn's Masada. This means the music is energetic and robust, with a frenetic rhythm section and a trumpet / sax frontline very exact when delivering unisons and counterpoints and free in the improvised solos. The music is simultaneously heavy and agile, flowing as a bird of prey in open air, and defying gravity. A must have, must listen!"-Clean Feed

Also available on vinyl LP.
