Less than one month until Incubate 2010. For the past few months we’ve been announcing new artists every week. But with 200 + artists coming up in September we can imagine you losing your hold. That’s why we compiled the Incubate 2010 Spotify playlist (http://incu.at/spotify). Subscribing to this playlist will get you acquainted with most of the Incubate 2010 bands.
Apart from their music, part of the getting-to-know-them-better-proces will also be us asking some of the artists a few questions in the upcoming months. The sixty-eighth edition in a series:
1.Can you please introduce yourself?
Sidsel Endresen, Norwegian singer/composer/bandleader. I live in Oslo.
2.Where are you at the moment?
Just back home from MoldeJazz Festival and a duo concert with Norwegian guitarist Stian Westerhus.
3.Have you played in the Netherlands before and if so, what’s your view on or experience with the scene you’re operating in in The Netherlands?
Yes, I’ve played in the Netherlands before: A couple of times in Amsterdam (Bimhuis) and at the North Sea Jazz Festival, a.o. All very good experiences. And Bimhuis has that wonderful room…!
4.What can we expect of your gig at the Incubate Festival?
I honestly don’t know! This will be my first ever concert with Bram and Jim – and we will be working completely free improvised.
5.What are your plans for the (near) future?
Festivals in Europe with Norwegian sax-player Haakon Kornstad – plus some solo-concerts. Japan in November. Also working on a new solo-record for Jazzland.
