On the guitarist and composer Trond Kallevåg Hansen’s inspired and inspiring Hubro debut, edgily ambient and cinematic atmospherics meet front-porch picking from a super-sensitive folk and jazz inspired ensemble given serious twang by the legendary Geir Sundstøl on slide and pedal steel.
The spacious music wears its influences on its sleeve - there’s Ry Cooder in there, Ennio Morricone, too, and an echo of Geir Sundstøl’s own recent solo masterwork, ‘Brødlos’, whose recording venue of Studio Intim (Sundstøl’s home-studio in Oslo) ‘Bedehus & Hawaii' shared - but there’s no straining for effect.
The remaining ingredient, and perhaps the reason why the album goes so far beyond the normal confines of a superior ‘picking’ set of instrumentals - whether jazz, country, or whatever - is Trond Kallevag Hansen’s interest in film soundtracks, and his use of sound as sound, which adds a further level of intellectual engagement to the project. “I wanted the musicians to express themselves without feeling limited by the music, but I also wanted to tell stories and have a cinematic quality”, he says. "That’s also why I’ve been mixing electronics and a little field recording into the music, in order to bring certain moods and pictures to the mind of the listener, but without overdoing it.”
