Internationally acclaimed Norwegian jazz pianist Tord Gustavsen joins forces with Afghan-German vocalist Simin Tander – a rising star on the European jazz and world music scenes – for his latest project Hymns and Visions. A work that saw its beginnings with the inclusion of the hauntingly powerful Eg veit i himmerik ei borg (A Castle in Heaven) on his latest quartet release Extended Circle, Tord lends his superior skills to interpretations and elaborations of ancient Norwegian hymns and new compositions of Sufi poetry. For the first time on stage, Tord uses subtle live electronics to add depth and new layers to the sensual minimalism of his work alongside Simin’s warm and vibrant vocal art.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
