Saxophonist Kjetil Møster has been one of our very favourite musicians for a long time. In the band Møster he is fronting a dream team of Norwegian musicians: Ståle Storløkken (Supersilent), Nikolai Eilertsen (Elephant 9, Big Bang) and Kenneth Kapstad (Motorpsycho). Kjetil Møster’s tenor sax playing in bands such as Ultralyd, Zaussi Five and The Core, and in collaboration with Chick Corea and the Trondheim Jazzorkester, has placed him firmly on the map. He was voted “International Young Jazz Talent” in 2006 by the organisations IJFO and IAJE. The band “Møster” was formed when he was invited to the Kongsberg Jazzfestival in 2010, and marked Kjetil’s return to jazz after extensive tours of several years’ duration with the electro-rock band Datarock. The group’s musical idiom is energetic, rock-inspired and dark, and according to Kjetil his goal with the band is to place the artistic style and intensity of his hero John Coltrane in a modern context.
