Eirik Svela Group @Seven Arts – 25 Nov 1.30pm

Now back in his native Norway after a long stint in Leeds, jazz guitarist Eirik Svela is establishing himself as an important voice amongst a new generation of jazz musicians in Oslo. In March 2018 he recorded his debut album in New York with the internationally acclaimed organ player Sam Yahel (Joshua Redman, Norah Jones) and in November he will be touring in England with his band Eirik Svela Group. The UK edition features some great musicians including Jamil Sheriff (piano), and Andrew Robb (bass). They are also bringing Magnus Eide, an up and coming Norwegian drummer with a fast-growing reputation.

Eirik Svela Group has grown out of the environment around the Norwegian Academy of Music. The group performs mainly music written by band leader Eirik Svela, which focuses on combining pretty melodies and complicated chords in an effortless way.
