STEIN URHEIM UTOPIAN TALES Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
After three acclaimed and highly original solo albums, the Bergen-based composer and slide-guitar master Stein Urheim is backed by six cherry picked musicians on his new album, 'Utopian Tales': Kjetil Moster, Mari Kvien Brunvoll, Per Jorgensen, Ole Morten Vagan, Jorgen Trĉen and Kare Opheim.

Much of the music on 'Utopian Tales' has its origins in a commission from Vossajazz for the Voss Jazz Festival 2016, with Stein Urheim (who in 2010 received the Voss Jazzfestival-Award) further adapting and extending the material through later re-recordings and additional solo pieces. The result is a continuously changing tapestry of styles and textures that forms a kind of evolving commentary on the concept of microtonality and its various social and intellectual connections.

On the beautiful penultimate track, 'Ustopia –; Part Two', the atmospheric muted-trumpet of legendary Nordic musician Per Jorgensen and the other-worldly voice of Mari Kvien Brunvoll (with whom Urheim has already made three critically acclaimed duo albums) add their own distinctive identities to Utopian Tales' strange yet beautiful sound-world, which ends as it began, in a meditative solo piece for Urheim's guitar.
