THE DISTRIBUTION TANGO 2.19.08: GUTTORM

Guttorm Guttormsen. Yes, you heard us: Guttorm Guttormsen. In truth, The Guttorm Guttormsen Quartet. Norwegian label Plastic Strip is pretty masterly at dropping avant-garde, unreleased, reissued cuts from their little part of the pond.

And yes, they’re releasing The Guttorm Guttormsen Quartet.

What exactly is The Guttorm Guttormsen Quartet? In the words of the good Norwegians at Plastic Strip:

“Both albums are colored by an original home made aesthetic that disregards highbrow jazz traditions – you can hear spiritual jazz, Latin jazz, folk music inspiration- but most of all there is a Norwegian lyrical quality to it.”

If that does nothing for you, then check out this little ditty:THE GUTTORM GUTTORMSEN QUARTET – L RO OG MAK

It’s coming, coming for you to purchase, you know if you’re feeling Guttorm.
