Jez Nelson presents Scandinavian super-group Atomic, recorded in concert at The Vortex. Pianist Havard Wiik, bassist Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love met at Trondheim's music conservatory in the early 90s and formed Atomic, with Swedes Frederik Ljungkvist on reeds and trumpeter Magnus Broo, in 2000.
Their debut album, "Feet", heralded the birth of a new Scandinavian sound, which brought together contemporary rock & pop influences with the jazz tradition. Tonight they play music from their latest record, "Theater Tilters", and reveal how over the last decade their music has developed, becoming harder, faster and louder.
