Waldemar 4 is a striking and vibrant unit consisting of some of Norway’s finest and most sought after improvising musicians, namely Håvard Wiik (pno), André Roligheten (sax, b.cl.) Erik Nylander (dr.) and Trygve Waldemar Fiske. Fiske put this band together for his commissioned work for Molde International Jazz Festival in 2014. Keeping with the tradition and spirit of jazz and free jazz, the collective playfulness is ever present in the music and the band offers up artistry at the highest level. The quartet delves effortlessly into eloquent interplay as they play a great combination of outgoing collective passages and melodic harmonic improvisation. Their debut album features inventive tunes by Fiske, Wiik and Roligheten, and is truly an album with a unique and personal sound.
