Grand General

RUNE GRAMMOFON Feb 01st 2013

Heavy and melodic prog/jazz/rock from new group consisting of some very prolific musicians from the Norwegian scene. Having played a few sensational gigs as Kenneth Kapstad Group this impressive line-up is now ready with a more fitting name for their debut album. With gifted violinist Ola Kvernberg, who won a Norwegian Grammy for his album ”Liarbird”, on board it´s difficult not to think of the Mahavishnu Orchestra when trying to place Grand General in a musical perspective. The interplay between the soloists is superb and with this rhythm section you can´t go wrong. However, as gifted as these musicians are and as accomplished the music can be, you never get the feeling that they play to show off their instrumental skills, but to serve the music.Even Helte Hermansen - guitar (Bushman´s Revenge)Ola Kvernberg - violinErlend Slettevoll - keyboards (The Core)Trond Frønes - bass (Sunswitch, El Doom
