Beautiful melodies accompanied by adventurous arrangements, Aagres lyrical Nordic Jazz sounds calm and dream-like. Frøy Aagre’s own sound runs through all twelve tracks of Cycle of Silence. The album is a tale of experiences: “Long Distance” deals with the subject of far-off conversations, as well as Aagre’s love of hikes in nature. She noted her first thoughts on her mini suite “Siberia” on a flight over the Russian landscape. “There were no clouds in the sky for the entire flight and you could see the Siberian landscape transform from rugged mountains into gentle hills and empty tundra. I had never seen anything like it.” With “Steam Train”, at the beginning of the album, Frøy tells of her favourite railway journey from Oslo to Bergen, while she says farewell to listeners with the prospect of a “Neverending Journey”. A journey that should be enjoyed – provided you have Frøy Aagre’s music with you!

About Frøy Aagre:

Greatness often lies in compactness. If you search for the important impulses in European jazz you won’t necessarily find them in the cities and densely populated urban centres of our world; instead we should look to the corners and countrysides, and a land of fewer than 5 million inhabitants - Norway. No other country in the world has produced more prolific jazz musicians, at least when compared with the number of its inhabitants. Jan Garbarek, Nils Petter Molvear, Silje Nergaard and Bugge Wesseltoft are only the well established stars. In addition to these, new and highly promising musicians are also regularly stepping into the limelight. 32-year-old saxophonist Frøy Aagre from Tønsberg is one of these rising stars from the land of the Northern Lights, and Cycle of Silence is her ACT debut.

Aagre’s “Nordic Jazz” tells of an expectant calm, sharpened perception and distances which give space to breathe. Her Cycle of Silence sounds calm and dream-like. Her warm saxophone sound and ...
