Jaga Jazzist
Jaga Jazzist

Norveç’ten son on beş yılda çıkmış en yaratıcı, maceracı ve heyecan uyandıran yenilikçi caz topluluklarından kuşkusuz en başta geleni Oslo’lu Jaga Jazzist Türk müzikseverlere unutulmaz bir konser vermek üzere 7 Şubat akşamı CRR Caz Şubatı kapsamında sahne alıyor.

Jaga Jazzist’in biricik bir soundunun olmasının anahtarı belki de farklı fikirlere, müzikal stillere sahip, farklı etkileşimlerden gelen, farklı projelere imza atan 9 müzisyenden oluşan bir kadrosu. Trompet, trombon, bass klarinet, tuba, elektrikli gitarlar, bass, bolca elektronik alt yapılarla hiçbir sınır tanımadan ürettiği bir ses örgüsüne sahip topluğun temelleri Lars ve Martin Horntveth tarafından bundan tam 19 yıl önce 1994 yılında Oslo’nun dışında yer alan Tonsberg adlı kasabada atılmıştır.

İlk albümleri “A Livingroom Hush”’ı 2001 yılında yayınlayan Jaga Jazzist albümün Norveç’te 15.000 kopya satması üzerine bütün müzikseverlerin dikkatini çekti. Albüm, 2002’de BBC tarafından yılın caz albümü olarak seçildi. Takip eden dönemde verdikleri birçok konserle müzikseverleri büyüleyen topluluk, özgün tarzı ve yarattığı yankı ile kısa zamanda bağımsız ve alternatif müziğin en önemli plak şirketlerinden Ninja Tune’un dikkatini çekti.

Jaga, ikinci albümü “The Stix” i Ninja Tune’dan çıkardı. Albümün prodüktörlüğünü, Röyksopp ve Kings of Convenience’in da stüdyosu olan “Duper Studio”sunun beyni JørgenTræen üstlendi. Bu albümde kendilerine özgü tarzlarını daha ileri götürme niyetleri açıkça görüldü. İnsan ile makine arasındaki dengeyi zekice tutan fakat organik, 10 kişilik orkestra duygusunu kaybettirmeyen bir albüm olan “The Stix” tüm müzik çevreleri tarafından olumlu karşılandı.

2005 yılında yayınlanan;  “All I Know ıs tonight”, “Stardust Hotel” ve “Oslo Skyline”  gibi hitleri içinde barındıran üçüncü stüdyo albümleri “What We Must” grubun müziğini  rock’a doğru yönlendirdiği bir albüm oldu. 90’ların shogaze akımından 70’lerin progressive rockına uzanan bir rock yolculuğu ama kendi dokunuşlarının olduğu, kendi süzgeçlerinden geçen yenilikçi bir rock anlayışı.

Bir sonraki stüdyo albümlerinin “One Arm Bandit”’in çıkışı  5 yıl gibi uzun bir zaman dilimini aldı. Yaptıklarını tekrar etmemeye çalışan topluluğa “WhatWeMust” sonrası katılan OysteinMoen ve StianWesterhus ile birlikte Lars Horntveth bu albümün yazımı için İsveç ormanlarında bir eve çekilir. Bu albümde  hem ilk dönem elektronik tınılardan hem de rock tınılarından uzaklaşırken “JagaJazzistsound”una efsanevi Nijeryalı müzisyen FelaKuti’nin afrobeat stilini  Wagnervari kutlama havalarını entegre ettiler. Albümün mixajını Tortoise’dan John Mc Entire ile yaptılar. Yeni bir sayfa açılmıştı Jaga’nın kariyerinde.

Jaga geçtiğimiz Mayıs ayında ise müziklerini orkestra ile birleştirerek Britten Sinfonia ile kaydettiği canlı albümü yine Ninja Tune etiketiyle yayınladı.
