The music of the Norwegian almost-big-band Jaga Jazzist feeds itself from such diverse influences – you might as well call it utterly unique. They’ve reinvented their sound various times. And this only adds up to their unstoppable hunger for live experience. Now for the first time they’re taking an album on the road that hasn’t been recorded in the studio together. Starfire is the result of a displaced process between Los Angeles and Oslo – now it’s going to be transformed into a stage version. For more than ten years Jaga Jazzist keep a steady working relationship with the very advanced british label Ninja Tune.
