Eivind Lønning

Trumpet

(b. 1983) Eivind is one of the most prominent and active young musicians on the Norwegian creative music scene, playing in bands like Christian Wallumrød Ensemble, Motif, Koboku Senju, and Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. He is experienced in both jazz and classical music, and has developed a very personal sound with unusual melodic qualities. In the duo Streifenjunko, with sax player Espen Reinertsen, they have worked closely together for many years to present a truly unique repertoire, a mix between composed structures and improvisations, and have collaborated with Keith Rowe, Tetuzi Akiyama, Toshimaru Nakamura, Jim Denley, Christian Wallumrød, Sidsel Endresen and video artist Kjell Bjørgeengen.
