Award winning musician and composer Helge Iberg is releasing two albums this spring. On 'Helge Iberg's Jazz-kammer - A Musical Offering' we find him in collaboration with a powerful lineup of Norwegian jazz profiles Bendik Hofseth, Mats Eilertsen, Paolo Vinnaccia and Elin Rosseland. This album is a welcome sequel to 'Standards and Vanguards' from a few years back, an album that received outstanding reviews. Iberg continues to present refined and surprising versions of jazz standards, adaptations and new original tunes. This includes Thelonius Monk's 'Round Midnight' transformed into 'Before Midnight' and 'The Roundabout / And After', and also Lennon/McCartneys 'Blackbird' - shapeshifted into 'Blackbird Revisited'. This is all intelligent music that is easily accessible - exquisite musical meditations on the jazz tradition. All of these works were recorded by Jan Erik Kongshaug in Rainbow studios.
