Filipino-American Jon Irabagon (37) has topped both the Rising Star Alto Saxophone and the Rising Star Tenor Saxophone categories in Down Beat´s critics polls and been named one of Time Out New York´s 25 New York City Jazz Icons.
Among the seemingly endless praise we can read “stalwart technique and a
deep understanding of avant-garde vocabulary” (JazzTimes), “a musician of
intense concentration who wants nothing more than to indulge a spirit of play,
emphatic and unreserved” (New York Times), “some of the most galvanizing
jazz of the past few years”
(Time Out New York) and “one of the strongest, most flexible, and daring saxophonists at work today” (Peter Margasak). A founder member of Mostly Other People Do The Killing he is also an integral member of the Mary Halvorson Quintet, Dave Douglas Quintet and Barry Altschul´s 3Dom Factor and has taken part on a vast number of records. On Rune Grammofon he can be heard on the bonus live album that came with the limited vinyl edition of The Last Hurrah!!´s “The Beauty Of Fake”.
John Hegre (49) is a musician, songwriter, sound engineer and a pioneer on the Norwegian noise music scene. He founded Jazzkammer (later Jazkamer) with Lasse Marhaug in 1998, releasing their debut album “Timex” on Rune Grammofon the year after. Close to 50 releases have followed on various labels. There has also been a number of releases with The Golden Serenades and Kaptein Kaliber as well as solo albums and collaborations with musicians like Maja Ratkje (“Ballads”, 2005), Lasse Marhaug/Helge Sten (“The Comfort Of Objects”, 1999) and of course Nils Are Drønen, who he has played with in different projects since 1995.
Nils Are Drønen (44) claims the two albums he has listened most to in his
life are “Creatures Of The Night” by Kiss and “Nefertiti” by Miles
Davis, still as fascinated and puzzled by the latter´s final all acoustic
studio album as when he first heard it some 30 years ago. He has been a player
on the fertile music scene in Bergen since teaming up with Hegre 20 years ago.
He is part of several constellations, including The Last Hurrah!!, playing on
their “The Beauty Of Fake” LP and “The Great Gig In Disguise” 10". With
Jazkamer he has
recorded six albums and toured Europe, Asia and America. Another project is Ornette For Ungene (Ornette for the kids) with Hegre, Stein Urheim and Kjetil Møster, visiting kindergartens and primary schools.
John and Nils Are first met Jon in Bergen, a city the saxophonist has visited several times after a legendary chance encounter with HP Gundersen in New York in 2010 that led to a deep, musical friendship with The Last Hurrah!! founder
