Elephant9 was already established as a vital favorite on the Norwegian Jazz scene, you won´t get more grooving than the band on stage. It was time to properly document this live force after five studio albums. Recorded in front of enthusiastic crowds during a four day residency at the intimate Kampen Bistro in Oslo, “Psychedelic Backfire I” shows the trio in full flight creating some magic sequences. Tracks are picked from all their albums, often given lenghty workouts with ample room for improvisation. Accompanying a fantastic live reputation in Europe keyboard player Ståle Storløkken, rhythm section, bassist Nikolai Hængsle and drummer Torstein Lofthus provide the necessary power and flexibility. The concerts were also filmed, so look out for some hi-energy close-up footage. Released on CD and Double Vinyl Album July 5, 2019 the album is now available at Rune Grammofon Artist Store and Amazon. Be sure to also checkout “Psychedelic Backfire II
