It’s not a revelation that trumpeter Tore Johansen’s mode of playing and overall sound has been compared to Chet Baker and Art Farmer. His calm but hip approach, combined with gorgeous tone and great phrasing, make’s Tore one of Norwegian Jazz’s most personal trumpet voices today. On Rainbow Session, his 5th album under his own name, he once again unites with bass-wonder boy Ole Morten Vågan together with two-time Norwegian Jazz Grammy winner, Vigleik Storaas at the piano. Tore integrates original compositions and standards, soulful ballads, fiery swing and flowing pulse, all songs seamlessly integrated in an intimate trio setting without drums.
