MOTIF picture
Motif is a Nowegian band with Atle Nymo on tenor, Håvard Wiik on piano, Ole Morten Vågan on double bass, and Håkon Mjåset Johansen on drums. They are joined for the occasion by German trumpeter Axel Dörner. All five musicians form the traditional bop quintet, and that's how they sound. With music that is composed, fully arranged and structured .... but with a twist. They are indeed the masters of deconstruction and reconstruction, abandoning their themes for wild or fun or experimental explorations, yet always falling back on the composed backbone of the piece.
