Episode 5 - Ola Kvernberg
Ola Kvernberg is a Norweigan violinist. If you like gypsy jazz, you may know him from the album 'Angelo is back in town' with Angelo Debarre. Even in those early recordings I feel it is clear he had a progressive voice, he does not stick to the usual 'violinistic' techniques and lines but has his own sound and approach to the changes...
Ola writes alot of music nowadays, much of it is alot closer to EDM than swing or gypsy jazz. I caught up with Ola when he was performing in London at Ronnie Scotts with the Tronheim Orchestra. We really were rushed as our schedules only just matched up for an hour and we had difficulty finding anywhere quiet. We opted for the park down the way from Ronnies so the sound quality is not amazing and there is alot of background noise. Aside from these difficulties, Ola was great to chat to and is a lovely dude, I hope you enjoy listening....
The music at the beginning is 'Harlots House' from Ola Kvernbergs album 'The Mechanical Fair'
The outro music is Benny Golsons 'Whisper Not' recorded by me and my band Latchepen
