Master Oogway – Eddapliks Pt.1 Kan vi flytte til Mars – The Concert Koan

Lauritz Lyster Skeidsvoll saxophone | Håvard Nordberg Funderud guitar | Karl Erik E. Horndalsveen double bass | Martin Mellem drums

Norwegian front. Master Oogway is a band with a Miles Davis feeling (and particularly the one of his Sixties records), a saxophone style rooted in the heritage of Ornette Coleman and the great free jazz original soloists, applied by tenorist Lauritz Lyster Skeidsvoll, and that kind of energy and distorted sound you only find in rock, coming very specially from the hands of guitarist Håvard Nordberg Funderud. All this glued by a rhythm section (bassist Karl Erik Horndalsveen and drummer Martin Mellem) acting like a riff engine and a concept inspired in the mythology of the movie “Kung Fu Panda” – the character Oogway, an elderly tortoise, is the creator of kung fu and the keeper of the Dragon Warrior legend, who he finally meets before ascending to the Spirit Realm. The music grooves constantly, but not in a linear way: it’s full of sudden stops and changes of metrics and directions, combining composition and improvisation in such a way you can’t differentiate the written and the spontaneously created.

Clarke takes a bold and significant step forward with this record, as he expands his previous approach to electro-acoustic music through the incorporation of a score for an ensemble of musicians. Performed by some of New York City’s finest up-and-coming improvisors, the outcome is a vibrant palette of unique instrumentation and modern synthetic sound that delivers a powerful and thought-provoking listening experience
