“It is some of the best music I’ve heard! Well-written and catchy tunes, where the melody tunes are played by Kaare Munkholm’s airy and hovering vibraphone with Jens Skou Olsen’s elegant bass and Benita’s sparkling and elastic drums dancing around – a shere pleasure to listen to.” Jazz Special 2017

Mørkefjell is the second part of Benita Haastrup’s Nordic CDBOOK Trilogy. The title meoldy (meaning Dark Mountain) is inspired by the artist Karin Grünbergers water color painting on the front cover. The ten original compositions takes the listener on a jpourney through the mountain range, down into the deep of the earth and back up and out again.

Mørkefjell is a 16 page CDBOOK with photos from our trio tours in Norway – and the music is an original take on the New Nordic Trio Jazz.
