Albums by Terje Evensen

Terje Evensen

Possessing a unique production style and an ear for pleasant surprises, Terje Evensen is a talented musician and a perfect example of the new school of drummer; a modern electronic-influenced player and well versed in free improvised music. His playing is fresh and driving, as he explores the extremities of his kit. “Not only is he a great drummer but he has other skills too, which mark him out as a very special musician to me.” // Martin France in an interview with Jazzwise Magazine

Pressclips of Terje:


”Norwegian keys, drums, electronics expert Terje Evensen – feature sparse dynamics with enterprising samples of white noise and percussive loops”
Keith Arnes - UK Musician Union
”Terje has a unique production style and an ear for pleasant surprises”
Chris Koff -  Sound on Sound

”Percussionist Terje Evensen adds decorative colour and texture; scraped and bowed cymbals, nuanced and fragmented rhythms.”
The Wire
”This is nightmarish, futuristic ambient jazz, full of brooding throbs and clanking electronics courtesy of Norwegian programmer Terje Evensen.”
Kartan Mackness – Time Out

”Evensen is a sensitive player, and his contributions subtly reinforce some of the rhythmic aspects of the music without ever slipping into a flat-out groove.”
Brain Marley - The Wire
”Terje is very much a multi talented musician too who I met here in London. Not only is he a great drummer but he has other skills too, which mark him out as a very special musician to me.”
Martin France in an interview with Jazzwise Magazine

”Evensen, a former student of the mighty Audun Kleive clearly relishes exploring the extremities of his kit as well as playing in time.”
John Gill - Jazzwise
”Norwegians Terje Gewelt (Bass) and Terje Evensen (drums) set up a Brilliant rhythmic foundations for Powell and the breathtaking guitarist Mike Walker.”
JazzUK

”Terje Evensen is one of the brightest young jazz musicians I have heard for many years”
Graham Collier - Jazz changes
”Drummer Evensen was a perfect example of the new school of drummer, a modern electronic-influenced player but well versed in free jazz, his playing was fresh and driving”
Steve Cournane – The Dominion post NZ
