Flying High Norvald Dahl -Solo Piano

El pianista i compositor noruec Norvald Dahl (n. 1978) s’obre camí a l’escena internacional del jazz amb el seu projecte per a piano solo “Flying High
Dahl va créixer en una família envoltada de música folklòrica.
El seu avi era ferrer i violinista, i també compositor. A l’edat de cinc anys, Norvald va començar a improvisar al piano i va descobrir les tecles blanques i negres. Aviat va emprendre una formació clàssica, però després d’uns anys va trobar que el blues, el jazz i la improvisació eren més del seu gust. Després dels seus estudis musicals a l’escola secundària, va estudiar piano de jazz de forma intensiva en el conservatori de música de Stavanger i Trondheim, i després va realitzar el Master en l’aclamada Acadèmia Noruega de música d’Oslo.

Amb “Flying High“, el pianista Norvald Dahl ha gravat un conjunt d’improvisacions per piano formoses i molt personals. Per moments, les declaracions cristal·lines i pacients sonen com podrien ser un homenatge a la trobada únic entre muntanya i mar que té lloc en la seva regio natal More Romsdal i les gravacions per acidòfils segurament afegiran això a la seva llista de favorits.

Norwegian piano player and composer Norvald Dahl (b.1978) is now making his way into the international jazz scene with his solo piano- project “Flying High”.

Dahl grew up in a family surrounded by folk music. His grandfather was a blacksmith and a fiddler, and also a composer. At the age of five Norvald started improvising on the piano, discovering both white and black keys! He soon took up classical training, but after a few years he found blues, jazz, and improvisation more to his liking. After musical studies in High School, he studied jazz piano intensively at the music conservatory in both Stavanger and Trondheim, and later performed his Master ́s degree at the highly acclaimed Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo. Over the years Dahl has been involved in many international projects; like his own quartet; Norvald Dahl trio with Jon Irabagon, the sextet Space Riders (with Kike Perdomo), Wayne Brasel Quartet, and Organic Chamber (with Mats Eilertsen & Jon Irabagon). He also did a duo recording called “The Vision”, together with American drummer Colin Stranahan. His latest project is the piano trio “Pandemic Solution”, with bass player Ingebrigt Håker Flaten and drummer Håkon Mjåset Johansen, whom he recently toured with in Norway and recorded their first album. (Jan 2023)

During his masters at the academy in Oslo, Dahl started working on a solo piano-project that resulted in the recording “Flying High” which he released on his own record label “Blåmann Records”. In 2020 he did a solo piano- tour in Norway, and he has since been developing the project further. His latest performance was in Auditorio de Tenerife during the International jazz day 2022. The music is influenced by contemporary composers and is both experimental and melodic, expressive and at times hypnotic. There will also be influences from Norwegian folk music, pop and jazz, all carefully blended by Mr Dahl into a captivating performance.

«With “Flying High”  pianist Norvald Dahl has  recorded a set of beautiful and highly personal piano improvisations.  At times, the crystalline and patient statements sound like could be an homage to the unique meeting of mountains and sea that takes place in his native region of Møre og Romsdal, Norway.  Fans of creative solo piano  and audiophile recordings will surely add this to their list of favorites.»
– Guitarist and composer, Jonathan Kreisberg
