If we take a small North bound trip along the coast, we do not have to travel far until we arrive in Bergen to find an uplifting jazz environment. One of the real prominent jazz musicians there is Eivind Austad.  Austad has been characterized, as a pianist with melodic flair likening a modern Bill Evans and rhythmical like Keith Jarrett.
He has a free approach to different genres, be it jazz, blues or soul. ”Northbound” is also the title of Eivind Austad’s critical acclaimed new album. We are looking forward seeing him perform also from this album at Spor 5 in September.
