Nils Are Drønen - many years at the center of Bergen's improv music - has gathered a band with both veterans and future stars who love to play together. After a cautious start in 2016, more and more new musicians have arrived, and the band today has a line-up that jazz enthusiasts will nod appreciatively to. With Drønen's compositions at the bottom, they play a mixture of free improv and party avant garde jazz.
"Simple Thoughts For A Troubled Mind "is a refreshing album, with many facets of jazz possibilities. I also imagine that Whatever is a band that can be worth a look on stage." (Geir Rakvaag, Dagsavisen)
