Albums by Excess Luggage

Excess Luggage

Excess Luggage does have a special line up. Piano, organ and drums are not only among the most heavy trio instrumentation you can think of, but also a musically unusual and inspiring format. Being able to combine the groovy feel of the B3 organ with the harmonic possiblities of the piano you would think that this set up should be more common. Hopefully this band can make it become more common.

Vigleik Storaas: One of Norways most important jazz pianists. Have won 2 norwegian Grammys (“Spellemansprisen”) and played with international stars as Karin Krogh, Terje Rypdal, NHØP, Chet Baker, Jack DeJohnette, Warne Marsh

Håkon Mjåset Johansen: Was at a young age established as one of Norways leading drummers with the norwegian Grammy winning band “Urban Connection”. Have played with Chick Corea, Michael Brecker, Jan Garbarek, Bobby McFerrin, Motif, IPA
