Og hvad er klokken? / and what time is it?


ja, strengt talt var den omtrent kvart på ti på kvelden sist lørdag da jeg tok dette bildet. Men egentlig er det navnet på en av gruppene danske Kresten Osgood reiser rundt med, denne gangen på Nasjonal Jazzscene Victoria på Karl Johan. Et par norske gjestemusikere var med, her gitarist Nils Olav Johansen.

well, it was about 1045pm last saturday when I took this picture. But it is in fact the name of one of danish Kresten Osgood are touring with, this time at National Jazz Scene Victoria at Karl Johan street. With a couple of norwegian guest musicians, this is guitarist Nils Olav Johansen


trompetisten er også norsk, Gunnar Halle, mens saksofonisten er dansk og heter Jesper Løvdal

trumpeter Gunnar Halle is norwegian, the saxophonist is Jesper Løvdal, danish


Kresten Osgood er en glimrende trommeslager, jeg hadde ikke hørt han før (ikke en gang i København Jazzfestival) og jeg ble imponert. Mye energi, sjekk dette klippet.

Kresten Osgood is a brilliant drummer, I had not heard him before (not even at Copenhagen Jazz Festival) and I was impressed. Lots if energy, check this clip.

ikke bare trommis, også vokalist, ganske ekspressiv sådan. Så kom den interaktive delen av kvelden, publikum måtte gi sitt bidrag. Nå var jo lørdag en av de første deilige utepilskveldene, så det var dessverre lite folk der, her ser du omtrent alle som var der. Jeg måtte ta meg av dokumentasjonen.

not only drummer, also a vocalist, a rather expressive one. Then came the interactive part of the evening, the audience had to do their part. Saturday was one of those mild and lovely evenings, obviously ment for outdoor drinking, so there were not many people there, you see almost all of them here. I had to do the documentation.


synd det, det var en fin jazzkveld

too bad, it was a nice jazz night

Mana, welcome to my blog! And thanks for liking my picture!

The title picture is taken just 200 metres from where I sit and write just now. The bridge is called Vøyenbrua, and the river is Akerselva that divides Oslo into a west and an east part. The man is singing spiritual songs, he actually whistles as well. You can find it if you click on the tag Bridges over Akerselva.
