Gunhild Seim “Time Jungle” (2007)

One of top 10 jazzalbums of 2007 by the newspaper Dagsavisen.
Personnel:
Andrew D’Angelo – sax/producer
Gunhild Seim – trp
John Lilja – sax
Dag Magnus Narvesen – drums

“It is an album with a freshness and originality that grabbed hold of me after just a few bars”
Roald Helgheim, Dagsavisen

“This is a surprising and beautiful album, and Seim is a musician who claims a solid place in the landscape of modern jazz”
Jan Granlie, Jazznytt

“Seim’s two duets with D’Angelo present her as an accomplished and inventive player. The first improvised duet shows Seim, as informed by the abstract improvisations of Bill Dixon, while her innocent improvisation over the waltz theme of the second is truly magical”
Eyal Hareuveni, AllAboutJazz.com

“Music with bite, with inventive, playful interaction between the trumpet and the bassclarinet”
Allan Sommer, Jazz Special (DK)

“A promising debut record where Seim plays with a sound that ranges from pure classical to rough, with glowing intensity in fascinating, extended melodic lines”
Terje Mosnes, Dagbladet

“Seim plays free jazz, but at the same time has close connections to other styles. She is obviously a melodic player at heart, who has the courage and desire to explore free and open musical spaces.”
Tor Hammerø, Nettavisen/TV2

“The music is constantly transforming through shifting colours, strange dialogues and explosive, tight themes.”
Erling Wicklund, NRK

“The original compositions are turned and twisted in all directions and the album is constantly exciting to listen to (…) very fun and playful, not to mention cool”
Hans Christian Hyrve, Utropia
