Digital booklet Album only

After ten years of strengthening technique, discovering nuances, and playfully exploring the sonic possibilities of the sax, Håkon Kornstad finally has released his own solo effort in Single Engine (Jazzland, 2007). — I think in the past I really wanted to try every imaginable style, every form of music, Kornstad says about the recording. And I did. With this album, I feel for the first time that everything has come together and allowed me a greater range of expression than what I had previously, in that I’m not bound to any one style, but have gone beyond that and now am forging into another – one that’s entirely my own. In the 10 tracks on the album we are taken from a myriad of sounds – from the sax, to the home made flutonette, to electronics – which shows the driving force of Single Engine gaining momentum, clearly tied together with an impeccable artistry and Kornstad’s willingness to explore. After a decade of collaborations and as sideman, he comes fully into his own and invites you to hear what he’s discovered. With the culmination of his past, Kornstad is now firmly placed in the future, and Single Engine is certainly the driving, propelling force that will at last gain him the recognition for his own individual vision. ///// Released: 2007 ///// Personell: Håkon Kornstad-Tenor and bass saxophones, Flute, Flutonette & Melodica / Bugge Wesseltoft - Hammond B3 / Knut Reiersrud - Acoustic Guitar, Lap Steel / Ingebrigt Håker Flaten - Double Bass

About Håkon Kornstad:

It can often seem that within jazz music, saxophonists come a dime a dozen, with few ever gaining any permanence as a fresh, original voice. The Norwegian saxophonist Håkon Kornstad isn’t one to blow his own horn, so to speak, just to hype his talent and rave about his abilities. He’s wisely left that up to others to do, and the results are that an increasing number of music critics, reviewers and listeners are stepping up to exclaim the “new” saxophonist as their own discovery. The accolades certainly abound. And after a decade of experimentation and a respect to his craft as a musician, as well as a considerable amount of recordings to show for, Kornstad has finally emerged with his first fully-fledged solo endeavor, entitled Single Engine (Jazzland, 2007). Håkon Kornstad has received extensive praise for his wide rage of different expressive moods and soundscapes for tenor sax, for his boldness in combining percussive beats and layers of sound – at times abruptly percussive, an...
