a live psychedelic bond soundtrack twisting & turning from the stage, recorded with one of the world’s most celebrated & pioneering orchestral ensembles.

this record captures a spectacular collaboration (40 people on stage) which underlines the fluidity, freedom & maverick brilliance of norway’s thriving music scene. at times it seems to explode from the speakers in pure, exuberant colour, moving with unrestrained ease from quiet reflection to cinematic, widescreen thunder, from ‘sound of music’ pastoral joy to pulsing jazz chase sequences. the orchestra is employed expertly, offering vast, visionary instrumental segues into the jazz/prog band's pieces. highlights include sprawling interpretations of 'bananfleur overalt', 'toccata', 'music! dance! drama!' & the title track from 2010's 'one armed bandit', 'for all you happy people' from 2005's 'what we must' & 'kitty wu' from 2003's 'the stix'.
